    unknown to a few, Soest is the scene of the famous WW II Dam Busters! A short journey outside of the town lies the holiday resort 'Mohnesee' which apart from having extremely nice lakes and surroindings also features architecture that was directly affected in WW II.

    a great venue for a day out in Soest in the summer.

    Located to the south of Soest, is a large, and widely unknown mass grave.

    Dating back over 5,000 years, this stone burial site doesn't seem like much to most people, but for those with an interest in history, it's a worthwhile detour.

    In 1991, over 130 skeletons were excavated from the site.
