The gate of Altena's castle can be seen as symbol for the western gateway to nature park Sauerland-Rothaargebirge.
In order to provide a short introduction regarding this relatively new nature park, this clip has been produced. People might recognise some of the locations, including Altena's castle, the Lenne terraces and the distinctive hilly wooded mountains.
Nature park Sauerland-Rothaargebirge is South-Westphalia's latest precious acquisition in terms of nature conservation and outdoor recreation. It comprises former nature parks Ebbe mountains (777 km²), Homert (550 km²) and Rothaar mountains (1355 km²), that were put together with other parts.
