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.
