If pretty traditional style buildings and lovely meadows please you, then this city in the Sauerland region of Germany will delight you. It was once known as a legal and administrative centre of Westphalia in Germany, and became a bustling city under Prussian rule. It forms a major attraction for nature lovers, as it is surrounded by dense forested lands. The Sauerland Gebirgsverein nature reserve, one of the largest in Germany, is home to elk and other animals, and contains hundreds of hiking trails. If you are looking for entertainment, you can find it at the Herdingen Theatre, in the form of folk music, or at the art galleries of Neumarkt and Neheim. The night time Husten Fair, organised in the city since ancient times, transforms the terrain into a spectacular wonderland with music, rides, stalls, pyrotechnics, and dance performances, and could be one of the highlights of your stay if you rent a car to travel to the venue at Ruhr. You could also spend the day visiting heritage monuments such as the castle in the Old Town, the Oberfreistuhl, Wedinghausen, the two ancient churches, and some of the oldest judiciary buildings in Germany.
