A landmark of Dahle is the church. It looks quite old from outside. In fact it was built between 1779 and 1782. Inside the church has been renovated and modernized. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like anything special but is very peaceful. In one corner you may view the old clock face.
Outside the church you will find a few old tombstones and the view is quite nice as the church is located in a superb spot. The walk up Hasenkamp street is quite steep.
When you drive on the road from Dahle to Neuenrade you will find a big war memorial. The road actually winds around it.
The big round memorial is dedicated to the first world war. It was built in 1931. There is also a memorial dedicated to the victims of the second world war. Both memorial are set in a small park.
In the centre of Dahle you will find a small square with the Maibaum (maypole). Also on the square there is a bank, a closed down café and the Hotel Restaurant Alte Linden which is your best bet for refreshments. As the name suggests (Alte Linden) there are indeed some old Linden trees standing in front of the Hotel Restaurant.
If you come down from the Kohlberg (Neuenrade) you will automatically pass by the maypole.
We came to Dahle by car but there is actually a bus. From Altena (Am Markaner ZOB) you can take the bus number 32 to Dahle.
I first discovered Dahle from the Quitmannsturm on the Kohlberg. The Kohlberg lies in the municipality next door which is Neuenrade. If you travel up the road from Dahle to Neuenrade you will pass a turn off on your left which takes you to the car park of the Kohlberg.
From the top of the Quitmanns tower you can spot Dahle, well at least in November when there are no leaves.
The Kohlberg is an excellent area for short and longer hikes.
