On the hike along the castle route (follow the castle route logo), the path leads past picturesque half-timbered houses, magnificent views and imposing buildings. Be it the old manor house in Kallenhardt, the picturesquely situated Wasserschloß Körtlinghausen or the largest scout camp in NRW. Every meter you cover offers new and impressive views and insights. At the end, you can round off the hike with a pilgrim's beer and a hearty meal, for example at the Romantikhotel Knippschild, which has been awarded a Michlin star.


Safty guidelines

z. Between Lisbon and Porto, for example, the infrastructure is not yet so well developed. The stages from one accommodation to the next can therefore be long and adventurous.

Author Tip

Diese gemütliche bis mittelschwere Tour mit ihren malerischen und grandiosen Aussichen in den Naturpark Arnsberger Wald ist besonders für Naturfreunde und Kulturinteressierte geeignet.
