Arnsberg

The town of Arnsberg offers variety and proximity to nature in a beautiful landscape with a large number of forested areas. The historic town centre can be seen from far away on a mountain ridge. Romantic winding passages and the ruins of an electoral prince’s castle form the medieval centre.

Arnsberg is located in one of the largest unbroken forested areas in Germany. The Arnsberger Wald forest nature park is a unique nature reserve, and is a good place for pure nature enjoyment with its excellently connected network of hiking trails. The historic town of Arnsberg is worth visiting, particularly combined with lively guided tours. The shopping town of Neheim is vibrant and modern, and is an attraction for the entire region. On the well-developed Ruhr Valley cycle path, Arnsberg is one of the most historically important towns. Along a stretch of over 30 km, the Ruhr flows through Arnsberg, showing the town in all its different dimensions. Arnsberg presents itself in a surprisingly diverse way: at first wonderfully rural, then of historical interest, refreshingly sporty along the way, and finally as an important town. The attractive location among the three lakes - the Möhne, Sorpe and Henne - as well as numerous attractions and day trip destinations close by make Arnsberg a popular place to stay.

Lichtturm Camera Obscura

The Lichtturm (light tower) project

A fortified tower from the 13th century threatened to slowly disintegrate. While it might have been stable externally, it was eroding on the inside, and in such a state, the tower could not be open for access in just a few generations’ time.
An important piece of cultural heritage of the town of Arnsberg will now be retained, however.
This was only possible with a change of use, combined with a new and interesting function.
In 2008, the idea emerged of integrating an accessiblecamera obscura into the tower.
