The town of Warstein is located on the northern edge of the Sauerland and in the middle of the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park. It is both a strong economic area with globally active companies and an impressive natural area. The citizenry cultivates Sauerland traditions, and the celebration culture here is as pure as the water and the beer.
The renaturalized floodplain landscape in the Möhnetal with the southern slopes of the Haarstrange, forest-covered ridges and valleys shape the face of the city. Relaxation can be found on hikes or bike tours in the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park, relaxation in the Warstein Allwetterbad with its spacious wellness landscape. Many highlights await active tourists: The Bilsteintal with the labyrinth of the Bilsteinhöhle, the game park and the outdoor archery course is ideal for families.
The Skywalk in Allagen offers a breathtaking view over the Möhnetal. The Hillenberg climbing arena, with 70 mostly alpine routes, is one of the leading climbing areas in NRW. The Lörmecketurm on the Sauerland-Waldroute offers 580-meter views as far as the Teutoburg Forest and deep into the Sauerland. Cozy restaurants provide culinary delights. Thousands of visitors from near and far come to major events such as the Warstein International Montgolfiade, the Sauerland Tour professional cycling race or Strong Viking.
In addition, the city of 26,000 inhabitants is an important economic area in Südwestfalen: 19 companies that develop innovative top performances have more than 100 employees and there are almost 10,000 jobs subject to social insurance contributions.
