Panoramic view over the green Sauerland
An imposing landmark of Hemer, which is climbed over 200 steps. On the way up, there are always breathtaking views of the Sauerland.

...and no kissy kissy - that's how we are! That's what it says on the menu and that's how it is - simply rustic. In this winding inn, you enter Bavaria right at the door. And just before the border to Bavaria. This calls for an Augustiner on tap - or if that's not enough, you can get a 20-liter keg to drink alone (or with friends) and plenty of Bavarian cosiness. What about food? That's also available. Really tasty and hearty... and in huge portions. And if you prefer to enjoy your beer, roast ox or spaetzle without the kids - no problem, they have their own regulars' table anyway.

Tip: buy your ticket online a day in advance to avoid the queue.
Space for secret messages
Psst... the whispering arch on the Untermarkt offers the unique opportunity to whisper something to your mom, brother or whoever without anyone nearby understanding a single word.
