The city of Arnsberg embodies life in Südwestfalen with all its charms and special features: Winding alleys and half-timbered houses, urbanity and modern diversity and, last but not least, the charming surroundings with the hills and lakes of the Sauerland make the city a very special location.

Arnsberg has grown from 14 small towns and villages rich in tradition, which were merged into a regional center in 1975. The district of Arnsberg with its historical heritage is worth seeing and can be discovered especially well during eventful city tours. The historic town center is visible from afar on a ridge. Romantic winding streets and the ruins of the electoral castle form the medieval center.

Vital and modern is the district Neheim, the "shopping center" under the open sky. The shopping city is an attraction for the whole region. Beautiful stores, boutiques, cafés and restaurants seamlessly blend together in the streets. A number of well-known brands, a well-stocked specialized trade as well as nationally and internationally known chain stores present themselves in attractive store premises. Here you can stroll, try on clothes, be inspired and enjoy your shopping trip to the full.

The Arnsberg city area is located in one of the largest contiguous forest areas in Germany. The Arnsberg Forest Nature Park is a unique nature reserve with an exemplary network of hiking trails for pure enjoyment of nature. On the well-developed RuhrtalRadweg, Arnsberg is one of the historically most important towns. On a stretch of more than 30 kilometers the Ruhr flows through Arnsberg and shows the versatility of the city.
