Bad Sassendorf - Lohne

Lohne was once the capital of the Soest Börde, the seat of the bailiff of the Upper Börde, who had to exercise police powers in this area on behalf of the Soest council. And still today Lohne with its numerous half-timbered houses and farmsteads is a pearl in the Soest Börde. In the middle of the village lies the large Lohne pond, from which springs the Ahse River, which drives a mill immediately after it exits the pond. Besides the pond mill (seat of the ABU), the most prominent building in Lohne is the Evangelical Church of St. Pantaleon. Particularly noteworthy is the stained glass window "Root of Jesse", a copy of probably the oldest church window in Westfalen, which can be seen in the Landesmuseum in Münster.
