Medelon in the beautiful Orketal valley, surrounded by wooded mountains, can look back on 725 years of history. The place name "Medelon" comes from the Celtic and means "meadow village". The village is located at the foot of the Rothaargebirge mountains on the border between the Sauerland and the Waldeck region. Medelon, situated at the beautiful Orkebach, offers pure relaxation with its well-kept green areas. Here you can discover nature and explore the surroundings on many circular hiking trails. The Sauerland Höhenflug, the Medebacher Bergweg and the newly created water trail "Der Orke auf der Spur" are another attractive offer for nature lovers. In well-kept and individual hotels, guesthouses, vacation apartments and restaurants you can enjoy the proverbial Sauerland hospitality.
