Detmold (IPA: [ˈdɛtmɔlt]) is one of the five Regierungsbezirke of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is in the northeast of the state.
The Regierungsbezirk was created in 1947 when the old state of Lippe was put into North Rhine-Westphalia and joined to the old Regierungsbezirk Minden. Regierungsbezirk Minden was one of the original Regierungsbezirke, formed in 1815.
