Hiking tip of the week

Golddorf-Route County

This Golddorf route, a good eleven kilometres long, takes you up to the Wilzenberg, also known as the "Sacred Mountain in the Sauerland". You can look forward to wonderful views of the idyllic landscape around the Schmallenberg district of Grafschaft. The hike starts in the centre of the village very close to the Grafschaft monastery, which is now used as a specialist hospital. You leave the village and soon enjoy the first fantastic views of the gold village and the surrounding mountains. Now you can climb one of them yourself: The path leads you steeply uphill to the Wilzenberg. Once you reach the top of the 658-metre-high peak, you can cover a few more metres of altitude and enjoy the fantastic panoramic view from the observation tower. You have now completed the demanding part of the hike. Afterwards, you can relax and return to Grafschaft.

Difficulty: Medium
Length: 11.3 km Starting
point: County town centre

Important note!

Wood harvesting measures

The Upper Sauerland Forestry Office points out that due to the bark beetle problem and the associated, necessary timber harvesting measures in the forests, hiking trails may be closed off at short notice. It is forbidden to walk on closed paths and it is life-threatening! We ask you to observe the closures and not to enter these paths.


Sorper Panorama Trail

Art, idyll, nature and more awaits you along this beautiful path. The Sorper Panorama Trail has been freshly certified as the new "Rothaarsteig Trail" to the quality trail Wanderbares Deutschland. Try it out for yourself...
