Iserlohn invites you to...

... enjoy a guided bus tour of the town under the expert guidance of an experienced town guide or take a tour of the town on foot and visit Iserlohn's municipal museum, art galleries and everything else the town has to offer.
Our town guides are fully qualified and will bring the town's past and present to life for you. And if you'd like to fit in a shopping trip or visit a café on the way round, the schedule can be adapted to suit your particular wishes.

... visit the Dechen Cave in Letmathe and admire the curtains of stalactites and stalagmites in one of Germany's largest dripstone caves. In the Caving Museum, you'll find the only reproduction of a cave bear in Europe which became extinct 10,000 years ago. The forest nature trail takes you above the cave and has fascinating facts on the rare plants found on the limestone rock. You can also visit the Catholic Parish Church of St. Kilian in Letmathe.

... take a break at Lake Seiler where you can take out a rowing boat, have a round of crazy golf, a walk around the lake or through Seiler Woods - with a detour to Bismarck Tower (with a restaurant by the lake) - or explore the surrounding area which is perfect for a relaxing ramble, for example, in Kesbern, Lössel and Dröschede (which offer a total of over 200 km of footpaths and a cycle network of over 40 km). Or simply while away the time in the park at Letmathe.

... take a walk in Iserlohn Woods with a visit to Danz Tower. From the tower, which is a former semaphore station, you'll have a panoramic view over the whole town (refreshments available). You can also stop over at Hennen and visit St. John's Church which dates from the Middle Ages and the historic Bimberg Schnapps Distillery.

And there's even more on offer if you love sport! Pursue your sporting ambitions with the 180 or so sport clubs which offer just under 50 different sporting disciplines from badminton, hockey, volleyball, dancing, taekwondo and water polo right through to gliding. In Iserlohn, not only do we promote competitive sport, but we also value and encourage the work we do with young people and promote sport in general.
