Recommended seasons


Fantastic views and charming half-timbered villages await hikers on the Golddorf route from Holthausen, which is marked with a golden G on a red background. The tour first leads along the well-kept 27-hole golf course of the Schmallenberg Golf Club in the direction of Niedersorpe. The next stage destination worth seeing is the small village of Huxel with its St. Elisabeth Chapel. Further on, you reach the picturesque Kneipp spa town of Bad Fredeburg with its playful architecture. North Rhine-Westphalia's last active slate mine, the Magog mine, is also on the way to Bad Fredeburg: Forty miners still mine slate there today. Back in Holthausen, you can visit the Westfalen Slate Mining and Local History Museum.
