Cities, Towns & Villages in the Unna District
Being one of the more beautiful districts, there are countless opportunities for exploring central German culture and workmanship at the same time. Here are a couple highlights…
The Kettenschmiedemuseum in Fröndenberg is a monument of the industry culture showcasing smithy art and how chains are being made. As a matter of fact, you may even try it for yourself!
The Cappenberg Castle in Selm, the Natur-Solebad in Werne, as well as the former Conveyor Tower “Ostpol” in Bönen are also worth a visit.
And if you’re after nature, then why not take a bike tour to and around the Horstmarer See, a lake in the nature park Lünen. For a smaller sized tour head over to Kamen and explore the Emscher-Park-Radweg.
Last but not least, Unna, the district’s capital, is a town that satisfies art lovers and museum enthusiasts alike.
