Sauerland welcomes you


Hospitality has always been capitalized in Sauerland. That was a necessity in this wild landscape of the early times and the mediaeval times with impenetrable forests, pathless hills and few single farms.

In ancient times ago a count of Arnsberg was said to grant asylum to the devil himself for one night. Luckily: the eerie guest returned the favour and saved the hosts and his family's life and limb.

The rough times are over. But the hospitality and sociability have stayed.


Over 1,000 beds in hotels, guesthouses, pensions and holiday apartments are available for the guest. The tourist offices in the town area will happily help you to plan your stay.

Here you get an overview of the latest accommodation offers in the urban area.

See you in Arnsberg!

"People from Sauerland are stubborn? That is possibly right. But they are hospitable, sociable and they can celebrate. Whoever has experienced it once, will always come back again. No matter whether in a village inn - or during a rave in a disco ..."
