Not far from Schmallenberg lies the hilltop village of Schanze at 720 m. Schanze is located slightly west of the crest of the Rothaar ridge - the main ridge of the Rothaargebirge. No matter whether it is a walk, a day hike or a stage hike - whether in hiking boots or on the cross-country ski trail - Schanze has a variety of offers ready with the local trail network such as:- the Kyrillpfad - barrier-free in the short version- hikes on the WaldSkulpturenWeg - a hike from Schanze to Jagdhaus- hikes to the surrounding Schmallenberg villages such as Oberkirchen, Grafschaft, Latrop or in the direction of Kahler Asten as well as to the Wittgensteiner Land. Worth seeing are the earthen ramparts that still exist near Schanze, which served as roadblocks for the medieval Landwehr. Furthermore, shortly before reaching Schanze, you can take a break at the pedal pool - for the little ones, the playground in the center of the village offers lots of fun and games.
