Hikers' parking lot Düdinghäuser Straße, 34508 Willingen-Usseln
Eiche im Ohl behind the Geo-Infostube
Sauerland-Seelenorte - these are rocks and quarries, churches and hilltops, mighty trees and underground grottos, lakes and valleys. 43 places, spread across the Sauerland-Wanderdorf villages, were chosen because they are particularly impressive and have a special significance for the people living in their surroundings. Not only today, but also in earlier times. They touch people emotionally, mentally and spiritually. They evoke strong resonances. They are places to which people wander and where they can switch off. Come to themselves. Enjoy the peace and quiet. Be inspired. Gain new insights. Even though each soul place tells its own story, there is one quality that connects them all: Living silence.
From the hikers' parking lot in Düdinghauser Straße we walk eastwards on the valley variant of the Uplandsteig quality hiking trail. On the right hand side we see the Oldtimer-Curioseum, a Musem, in which partly old, partly bizarre things are exhibited. After about 2 km we reach the Geo-Infostube "Ohl", which offers besides small refreshments also a lot of information about the history of the earth and the landscape as well as a lovingly compiled rock and fossil exhibition. Here you will also meet the Geopark guide and storyteller of this soul place, Renate Hill. To the left of the house, you can reach the oak tree, the tree that magically attracts people, via a meadow that rises slightly or (a little further) via a path. Perhaps Mrs. Hill has already told you something about this place. But you will definitely feel the power of this soul place yourself!
