#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Former train station Westig

Westig station is located on the former Iserlohn - Menden line. The Letmathe - Iserlohn line, which had already been completed in 1864, had been extended via Hemer to Menden eight years later and had found a connection to the newly built Hönnetal line around 1900. During this time, the increasing traffic made it necessary to rebuild almost all of the stations on the Iserlohn - Menden line. These were built in the country house style of the time - a mixed form of the ancestral slate-timbered construction with Art Nouveau elements, as was typical for the branch stations on the mountain lines of the Wilhelmine era.

The Westig station, which is the only one of these stations to have survived unchanged, is a half-timbered building on a rubble stone base and has variously shaped roofs. It comprises a two-story main building and single-story annexes on either side. The station was not only an urban reference point in the former street village of Westig, but was also an important hub in local history, because the reloading of goods from standard-gauge wagons to narrow-gauge railroads took place here, thus continuing the industrial development of the Ihmert valley, which had already started from here in the High Middle Ages. In 1989, traffic on the lserlohn - Menden line was discontinued and shortly thereafter the tracks were dismantled. The city of Hemer prevented the threatened demolition of the Westig station by placing the building under monument protection.

Exterior tours are possible at any time.
