Siegen-Wittgenstein

The open countryside gives you space to breathe deeply. Encounter rare animals like the majestic bison and get close to the local wildlife. Relax near the fresh springs, the lazily meandering rivers, the two dams and the countless streams and ponds. Recharge your batteries from our natural sources.

Then the forest gives way to vistas of pretty timber frame houses, imposing castles and ancient relics of the mines. Each of our eleven local communities has its own character, yet all of them have a cultural programme to offer you – whether theatre, concerts, cinema, exhibitions or festivals. Here you can experience art with all your senses. Sometimes you encounter it out in the green countryside, for example on the WaldSkulpturenWeg, a path lined with forest sculptures near Bad Berleburg. However, if you feel like breathing city air, you are never far from Siegen with its art scene, pubs, shopping streets and university.

Siegen-Wittgenstein is also a region steeped in old customs. Here you can discover real traditions and history. We invite you to our bakery festivals, traditional fairs and Christmas markets in the peaceful old towns. We are passionate about our home. Yet at the same time, we are totally laid back. Immerse yourself in peace and quiet. Come and visit us.

Bad Berleburg

Enjoy moments of happiness in Bad Berleburg along the way. Close to nature, high-quality and full of variety: our certified hiking trails such as the slate trail, the Via Adrina, the wisent trail or the forest sculpture trail are the best of their kind. The cultural offerings are also excellent.

Bad Laasphe

Clear streams, rivers, luscious meadows, lowland mountains up to 700 m high and gentle hills, Bad Laasphe has no end of beautiful scenery to offer. We want to share this beauty with you!

Burbach

We are “stone rich”, as they say in German. The “great stone”, surrounded by huge, mature trees, is shrouded in legend, while the “Wildweiberhäuschen” (“wild women’s hut”) rocks are an impressive sight, and the “Trödelsteine” made of cooled magma are wonderful to behold.

Erndtebrück

In a central location in the Rothaargebirge hills, in the middle of the Rothaarsteig trail and not far from the source of the Eder, Lahn and Sieg rivers, you’ll find Erndtebrück. It is a wonderful place for finding your own inner balance and to be in touch with nature.

Freudenberg

The view over the “Alter Flecken” monument in Freudenberg, with its 80 or more black-and-white decorative items, is famous all over the world. You can enjoy the well-known postcard perspective from the spa park.

Hilchenbach

The climatic spa town of Hilchenbach has green hills and meadows, unspoilt forests, bubbling brooks, silent valleys and original half-timbered villages. Take a deep breath and treat yourself to some time out.

Kreuztal

Delightful, tasteful, wonderful: the youthful town of Kreuztal surprises visitors with a wide variety of opportunities for refreshing adventure holidays or diverse day trips.

Netphen

Do you love water? Then come to Netphen! The sources of the rivers Sieg, Eder and Lahn bubble up from the ridge of the Rothaargebirge mountain range. Walk, jog, skate or cycle round the vast Obernau reservoir or to hidden ponds and murmuring streams.

Neunkirchen

Experience the parish of Neunkirchen, from its highest elevations to under the ground. Hike to the basalt peak on the legendary “Hohenseelbachskopf” hill, to the Silbersee lake in a volcanic crater or to the mine, to the depths of the Wodanstolln tunnel.

Siegen

The greenest town in Germany is the perfect place for strolling, shopping and people watching with its squares, shops and cafés and restaurants. The wide variety of theatres, galleries and museums makes Siegen the urban centre of the region.

Wilnsdorf

 In Wilnsdorf, history comes alive. Visit the numerous stone monuments to our history, which is dominated by iron ore mining, go on a cultural historical journey in time in our museum, and experience the exciting contrast between the past and the present.
