    Take A33 in the direction of Paderborn, then take exit Paderborn, then drive in the direction of Hameln/Bad Lippspringe/Detmold, then onto B1, then onto B239. Directions are neither easy to give nor to find. When you eventually have found the town of Horn-Bad Meinberg you might look for Brunnenstrasse at the very beginning of Bad Meinberg as there is a very comfortable parking lot for free.
