Between the people and the character of a region in which they live, there is a correlation. The nature of a landscape acts on the people that are living within. The inhabitants of a region in turn shape the landscape according to the given possibilities, their own needs and the resulting ideas based on their life needs. Reduced to a nutshell, it can be stated: The landscape shapes the people, the people formed or shaped the landscape.

This mutual influence is to be regarded as a challenge to deals intensively with our region, in which we live, the Warburger Börde.
The Börde has their own, so peculiar character. In 1935, Professor Dr. Ludwig Maasjost (†), who taught in Paderborn, describes our region in the following manner:

The Warburger Börder is for the most part designed by the man-made landscape. Billowing cornfields, orderly rows of crop, lush meadows and pastures. Well neat villages, large-scale manors and sedate country towns bear witness to the hard work of its inhabitants.

Proff Dr. Ludwig Maasjost (Die Warte, Nr. 8/1935)

In the southeast corner of our Westphalian home the Warburger Börde stretches a fertile agricultural landscape north-northeast of Warburg. As wheat and sugar beet country they became well known. The Börde consists of a basin which rises 180 meters above sea level at the lowest points and 260 to 300 meters in the edge heights.
The Eissen train station is, for example, 221.4 meters above normal zero, the Eissener height between Eissen and Peckelsheim has 247 meters above normal zero. The almost circular recess of the Börde is surmounted by the Desenberg which is 345 meters high. It rises more than 150 meters above the lowest points of the Börde which are in the valley of the Eggel 150 to 174 meters above normal zero. When we look from it's top to the northwest we can see it's „brother“, the Hüssenberg, that has a height of approximately 243.2 meters above normal zero and that is placed near to our home village Eissen.

If we climb up to one of the mentioned mountains and look around we will determine that the Börde is a basin, a recess, that is framed by forested mountains and mountain ranges. In the west we look to the woody ridge of the Eggegebirge, in the north we see the Brakel Muschelkalk heights and the beginnings of the Höxter mountains and hills.
The eastern edge heights are made by the foothills of the Weser Uplands and more to the south by the mountains of Hesse Highlands at the lower course of the Diemel. In the south, beyond respectively in the area of Diemel and Twiste, the Hessian volcanic mounts with their foreland confine our region. All of them, mountains and mountain ranges, enclose the the fertile recess that we call Warburger Börde. Thus the Börde is a large fertile bottom that is protected against cold and rough winds. It has the character of a unique cultural and agricultural landscape.
The landscape is still dominated by crop growing of cereal and sugar beet. However, in recent decades, other cultures, especially the vegetables added.
