Detmold (dĕtˈmōlt) [key], city (1994 pop. 72,109), North Rhine–Westphalia, NW Germany. Once the capital of Lippe, it is now a furniture-manufacturing center and summer resort. There is a 16th-century castle (now a museum). Nearby is a large monument, Hermannsdenkmal, commemorating the battle (A.D. 9) of the Teutoburg Forest.
