Discover the Sauerland and the federal gold village Oberhenneborn from your photographic side. Developed together with the well-known landscape photographer Klaus-Peter Kappest, the tour leads you on about 9 km again and again past particularly promising points and explains, even for the layman understandable, many tips for professional photography. It is not necessarily about the use of high-quality technology, but about the understanding of a meaningful picture language and the experience in nature. The Oberhenneborn photo route can therefore be experienced with a good cell phone camera as well as with professional equipment! You should plan about 3 to 4 hours for the tour, depending on your mood for photography.

Station 11: Fließendes Wasser fotografieren (Profi-Station)



Starting from the starting point, the hiking parking lot "Todesbruch" in Oberhenneborn, you first follow the Golddorfroute Oberhenneborn. After the successful ascent across the meadow, you first leave the Golddorf route (this branches off to the left) and you turn right onto the OH3. After about 50 m you will reach the first station of the photo route. Now follow the OH3 until you reach the "Hauptstraße" (Hennetalstraße) in the village and then turn left. After about 150 m you will see the old bakery on the right side, the station 2 of the photo route.Afterwards, cross the wooden bridge, pass the barn of the farm and turn right onto the asphalt road. After about 200 m turn left (towards the church) and, following the road, head towards Wüllner's Landgasthof. Shortly before the country inn turn left into the street "Zum Kreuz". After about 75 m you will reach the third station. You now follow the Golddorf-Route Oberhenneborn for a longer time, first with the Kreuzweg, uphill. After about 350 m the Golddorf-Route turns to the left and the bee nature trail begins - you continue to follow the Golddorf-Route and after another 200 m you reach the next photo point. Following the sign of the Golddorf route, the path turns right after a short while and leads up a small climb up the meadow. At the top you will already find the fifth station of the photo route on the right side. Now you continue to follow the golden "G" and pass the Kreuzkapelle (open during the day).After another climb along the asphalt road (it turns into a gravel road at the end), you will soon reach the next station of the photo tour - the "selfie point". After completing this point, walk back along the path for about 15 meters and then, between the two fields, continue walking along the Gold Village route until you see an old barn. Walk towards this and now leave the Golddorf route again. Immediately after the barn you reach a country road and turn left. After about 50 meters, turn right again and continue to follow the asphalt road. After a few meters you will reach the station "Goldener Schnitt" and directly after about another 300 m the station "Goldener Schnitt bei Landschaftsbildern". You then continue to follow the asphalt road, which after a few meters turns into a gravel road. After the "bench between the 3 birches" you will soon reach a turning point. At this point, take a sharp left and follow the path until you reach the highlight of the photo route - the panoramic view "Am Hömberg".Continue on the path and at the next crossroads turn left onto the OR2. After a short descent you will already find the next photographic task. Now continue on the hiking trail OR2 until you reach, at the level of the chapel in Oberrarbach, again a busy road. Follow this road for about 50 m to the right (watch out for traffic!) and then turn right again onto the asphalted farm road. Follow this path for 1.5 km until you reach the SGV hut "Eulennest". The next photo station is at the stream below the SGV hut, to which a clearly visible path leads. After you have completed this station, return to the SGV hut and turn left onto the hiking trail in the direction of Oberhenneborn. After about 900 m you will reach Oberhenneborn and your starting point, the hikers' parking lot at the "Todesbruch".
