Gräflicher Park, just beyond Paderborn, is a nice place for a day trip and to enjoy the autumn leaves.  The schloss is a spa hotel so not open to the general public, but for $5 euros you can walk around the park and admire the old buildings (the 5 euros includes $2.50 off your bill in the cafe).  The park is lovely and with pretty gardens around the back.  My kids enjoyed playing the with the giant chess set and there is a beautiful water sculpture.

There is a cafe for tea and cake, also a restaurant in the old stables which has good food although you may to wait awhile for it to arrive…
