    The Upland, which means Low German as much as Oberland or Hochland, is the northeastern, belonging to Hessen part of the otherwise Westphalian Hochsauerland.
    Here lies Ettelsberg, at the north-eastern end of the Rothaargebirge. It is about 838 m high and is known for its Hochheide, the Hochheideturm and the Willinger ski area.
    But also because of Siggis hut. Well, who likes it ...

    In summer, you can see paragliders at takeoff. In good weather you have a wonderful view on the viewing platform of the Hochheide Tower. On the Ettelsberg there are many beautiful hiking trails.

    From the tower you have a great view. Siggis hut is also worth a visit.

    With the storm Kyrill a whole forest area was ruined. Today (2018) a path leads through this natural forest area. You get a strong impression of the destructive power of the wind.

    You should use the free elevator in the tower to get a great view! :)
