The Osnabrücker Bergrennen is currently the most northern Hillclimb in Germany. It takes place near the small village of Borgloh, which in turn is part of the larger muncipality of Hilter am Teutoburger Wald. As the place name reveals, the Hillclimb lies in the Teutoburg Forest. This forest is actually a hilly landscape. It starts in the province of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), northwest of Osnabrück in a south-east direction towards Hilter. Here the hills reach peaks of 260 meters. Further southeast in Nordrhein Westfalen, past the city of Bielefeld, the highest hills are found, up to 450 meters. The Teutoburg Forest was formed more than 70 million years ago by the shifting of tectonic plates. This exposed old geological layers dating more than 200 million years back. It makes the region an ideal place for dinosaur fossils, except that at the time the surface was mostly covered with seas. In later years the landscape was shaped by glaciers in the various iceages, in turn eroding and despositing rockformations. Large parts of the Teutoburg Forest are incorporated in two nature parks. The Naturpark Teutoburger Walds southeast of Bielefeld and the Naturpark Terra.vita northwest of the city. Hilter is located in the northern park.
The Teutoburg Forest is named after the Varusschlacht in the year 9. In this battle three Roman legions were destroyed by Germanic forces under the leadership of Arminius (Hermann). It was the most shocking defeat of the Romans until that time. It was wildly believed that this battle stopped the Roman expansion north of the Rhine. In the 19th century in the struggle for German unity the history of the Battle was adopted by nationalists. A large memorial, the Hermannsdenkmal, was erected at Detmold, southeast of Bielefeld, at what was believed to be the site of the battle. Later archeological finds point towards the Kalkriese north of Osnabrück as the actual site. There you will now find a museum which also takes tours on the actual battleground.
Hilter lies some 25 kilometres southeast of Osnabrück and 35 kilometres northwest of Bielefeld.
