Evening mood in Porta Westfalica. At the Porta Westfalica gorge the River Weser runs through the passage between the mountain chains of the 'Wiehen Gebirge' (Wiehen Hills). It is the natural northern gate to the region of Westphalia and since ancient times it has an important meaning as a trade route connecting northern and eastern Germany with the with the major cities on the River Rhine. A monument of the German Emperor and King of Prussia Wilhelm I was erected on a hill on the banks of the River Weser in the 19th century.
