Mountain Biking Highlight
The Willinger Hochheideturm has been the highest walk-in lookout point in north-west Germany since 2002. Higher than on the observation deck (at 875 meters), you will not find anywhere in the region.
If you still have enough strength in your legs, you will reach the glazed observation deck over 241 steps. But there is also a lift available and you can so comfortably enjoy the great view from up there.
Speaking of strength - you can refuel in the Ettelsberg hut next door. The hut keeper Siggi always ensures a good mood with his whistle trumpet or the alphorn and the burning "hut spirit" and the pea soup in the glass have reached a true cult status.

Wooded mountains as far as the eye can see. A seemingly endless horizon. In the valley is picturesque the municipality Willingen. The view from the Hochheideturm is breathtaking. Visitors are nowhere higher than anywhere else in northwestern Germany.The Hochheideturm towers proudly on the summit of Ettelsberg. From the glazed, air-conditioned observation deck, the panoramic view of the Sauerland and Waldecker Land is simply impressive.A real adventure is climbing and rappelling at dizzy heights. On two routes, courageous people climb the Hochheideturm on one wall.Hochheideturm in numbers
