Old Town & Half-Timbered House Dillenburg

Dillenburg is the cradle of the Dutch royal family. William I of Orange saw the light of day here in 1533. The Wilhelm Tower, the landmark of our Orange town, was built in his honour. Here you can experience more than 660 years of history and tradition. Let yourself be enchanted by our picturesque half-timbered town with its sights and a variety of activities.

Discover our castle hill complex or let us guide you through the winding alleys of our old town. Sports enthusiasts can explore our varied nature with no less than three premium hiking trails, certified circular hiking trails and numerous cycle paths. The Hessian State Stud Farm, the wildlife park, the Aquarena sports and family pool, the Kneipp facility with graduation house, the visitors' gallery and the spacious 18-hole golf course will also delight you.
