Tourist Information Hallenberg
Tourist Information in the Information Center Kump
The attractive half-timbered town of Hallenberg offers, thanks to its favorable location on the Rothaargebirge, simply more sun than elsewhere and thus the perfect conditions for a successful vacation or eventful day trip.
Whether sport climbing in the Steinschab quarry, cross-country skiing in the Pastorenwiese cross-country skiing center, Nordic walking in the DSV Nordic active walking center, hiking or mountain biking in the endless forests of the Rothaargebirge - active vacationers get their money's worth in Hallenberg. And the varied tours satisfy the most diverse demands. Whether on an easy family walk on stroller-friendly paths or on a challenging cross-country ski tour, the relaxing silence is omnipresent. Along the way, many scenic spots invite you to unwind with a view of the swinging mountains of the Sauerland.
The historic town center is particularly impressive. Walk along beautiful half-timbered houses and admire the details. Visit the parish church of St. Heribert with its baroque furnishings and magnificent Renaissance paintings. Discover ancient frescoes in the pilgrimage church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Spend some time on the idyllic market square - there you will find the Petrus fountain with a figure of the apostle.
The "Kump" information center is a sight in itself: it is part of a historic group of buildings and houses an exhibition worth seeing on the history of the former agrarian town. Also preserved from earlier times is the Hallenberg ice house. Once, the citizens stored ice from the rivers there to cool food during the hot summer months. Now you can marvel at fascinating ice sculptures in what is probably Germany's smallest but "coolest" museum.
