    The Wilzenberg, called the Holy Mountain of the Sauerland, is with its 658 m altitude one of the most striking mountains of the Rothaargebirge and not only a place of pilgrimage between county and Winkhausen but also a pagan place of worship with visible ramparts. On this legendary mountain in the early Middle Ages a Wallburg and a Fliehburg are said to have stood. Next to the big summit cross, there is a crucifixion group with many benches in front of the Freialtar, as well as the Marienkapelle, Stations of the Cross and two other small chapels.

    The Wilzenberg tower offers a magnificent view over the Schmallenberger Sauerland and the Rothaargebirge.

    Lookout tower on the Wilzenberg is worth a visit. You will be rewarded with a magnificent view in all directions. There is also a small chapel in the immediate vicinity.

    Well worth seeing today in very wintry conditions. The rest also has something for itself. And the snow-covered forest has its own special atmosphere. Great here.

    Great place to take a beer and to watch the sunset.

    The summit cross, easily recognizable from the valley (county), was erected in 1972 and even towers above the treetops a good bit.

    Cute observation tower, which is also called "Eiffel Tower" (according to our hiking guide). Unfortunately now in summer the trees were so green that you couldn't look down to the county. Great resting place.

    Great observation tower, unfortunately you could not look over the tallest trees.

    When the weather is clear you have an absolutely good view. The climb is always worthwhile.

    After a steep ascent to the Wilzenberg tower you have a magnificent view ... There is plenty of seating and there is a beautiful beech forest all around ... I recommend it to everyone

    There is already a highlight here. It would be better to add a contribution there.

    Wonderful to read the historical landscapes.
    Also on the Wilzenberg. Two ring walls can be found here in the landscape.
    The location where the highlight was created is where you can clearly recognize the historic Ringwal in the landscape. A wide trench, a remnant of the ring wall around the castle from the 10th century, served to protect the medieval castle.

    The striking summit has an eventful history. This is well explained on the various information boards.

    A wonderful all-round view. Erected in 1889, it is a listed building and is 17 m high.
