The Jews of Horn

Horn-Bad Meinberg MapHorn-Bad Meinberg is a town in the Lippe district of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, with c. 18,300 inhabitants. It was formed in 1970 by merging various other towns that had grown together, including Bad Meinberg and Horn - the new entity's original name was Bad Meinberg-Horn, before taking its present name.

Horn-Bad Meinberg is the location of the Externsteine, a rock formation consisting of several tall, narrow columns.
