The Protestant Church in Arfeld is one of the most interesting churches in our region. Dates back to around the 13th century.

 

The village of Arfeld was first mentioned in 800 and is one of the oldest villages in Wittgenstein. The foundations of the church date back to the 13th century. It is a late Romanesque hall church. The assumption is that predecessor buildings had stood on the slope of the church hill since the 9th century. In the Middle Ages, the church was the seat of the deanery, which was roughly congruent with today's district of Siegen-Wittgenstein.

Since 2011, the church has been an "Open Cycle Route Church" and is open daily in the summer months. This offer is gladly used by cyclists, hikers, guests from Bad Berleburg but also locals.
