Top 11 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Bielefeld, Germany - Updated 2023


Bielefeld is the most populous city in the Regierungsbezirk Detmold region of Germany. There are a total of seven universities here, with over 35,000 students. Besides the people, there is also incredibly beautiful nature to be found here, in the form of the Teutoburg Forest, which offers panoramic views of the city.

Bielefeld also has a bit of an interesting history due to an internet conspiracy that circulated during the early 90s that claimed that the city didn’t actually exist and was just an illusion. Although the city is very much alive and well, this conspiracy has since been incorporating into a variety of marketing campaigns and the local residents now embrace the joke!

There is plenty to do and see here to keep you busy for a few days and so you’ll need an equally great place to stay. Check out our top Airbnb vacation rentals in Bielefeld, Germany, so you can see the beauty of the city with your own eyes!

10. Central attic room

This basic site is unique for our listings in that you need to bring your own bedding with you. There is also no shower on site, you’ll need to visit the local swimming pool to shower. But, what you will get is a fantastic location with the train station located just a few minutes walk away and overall a cheap, ‘pay-for-what-you-get’ option with a nice host. If you are looking for just a bed and a toilet for a night or two, this might be good for you.
