Detmold is one of the five Regierungsbezirke of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, located in the north-east of the country.

The Regierungsbezirk was created in 1947 when the former state of Lippe was incorporated into North Rhine-Westphalia by merging the former Regierungsbezirk Minden with the territory of Lippe. The Regierungsbezirk Minden dates back to 1815, when the Regierungsbezirke were originally created.
