The baroque Wasserschloss Körtlinghausen in the district of Kallenhardt is a real gem and can be hiked along the Schloss or Rabennestroute. In addition, over 180 more kilometers of well-marked hiking trails are waiting to be explored.

And all this embedded in a dreamlike landscape with crystal clear streams, dense forests and fascinating flora and fauna.

Here's the solution - pilgrimage tours in barrier-free covered wagons are possible - a visit to the Church of Lights included. Getting thirsty and hungry? Whiskey tasting and star restaurant - this is also in the repertoire!
