Schmallberg has a lot to offer:
There are four well-known health resorts in the town: Bad Fredeburg, the only Kneipp cure in the region, and two other recognized climatic health resorts, Kernstadt and Nordenau.
If you are more interested in swimming, you can choose from three public swimming centers: Sauerlandbad in Bad Fredeburg, Wellenfreibad in Schmallenberg or Hallenbad in Bödefeld. Sport freaks will love this place as well: cross-country skiing, mini-golf and tennis courts are all within reach.
Museum-goers must visit the new 2200m2 Holthausen Schieferbergbau and Heimatmuseum with many different exhibits from slate, animal and plant life to textile crafts and popular arts, and even a resident exhibition of the region's witchcraft trials, featuring documents and torture instruments of that era.
Every two years a street festival is held in August, with music and a variety of programs.
Your culinary senses will be delighted by the region’s specialties, such as Pumpernickelpfannekuchen, Bärlauchsuppe, Sauerländer Frühlingstopf and Poothucke, a baked potato filled with sausage. The local gastronomy is characterized by hearty meals including Bockwurst sausage and pumpernickel.
You are warmly welcome in Schmallenberg!
