Augustdorf is a small town with a passion for greenery and this makes it look like a natural extension of the Teutoburg Forest that borders it beautifully. Gardens, flower beds, and blossoms are everywhere from private courtyards to the sidewalks.
Speaking of sidewalks, you’ll soon notice that they are almost the same level as the streets and just demarcated as sidewalks.
In spring time the meadows come alive with blooms and join in the general aesthetic efforts. So, nature lovers, this is certainly your kind of destination! :-)
