Equally worth seeing is the historic parish church St. Johannes Evangelist, whose construction was started in the year 1242 and which was built in the romanic-gothic transition style.

The ruin of the burg of Eversberg (constructed from 1093 to 1124) is located on a mountain cone (455 m above sea-level) high above Eversberg. A small stone tower does still exist, which was restored to a look-out. The platform affords a far-reaching view into the „Land der 1000 Berge“ („country of the 1000 mountains“).

Also the town-hall is worth seeing. It serves as a reminder that Eversberg was an independent town until 1975. The entrance is adorned with a boar head, the coat of arms of the city and a huge deer antler.

Possible stops for snacks:
Lindenhof, from 17.00 hours, closed on Wednesdays;
Dollen Hof, 12.00-14.00 hours and from 17.00 hours, closed on Tuesdays;
Bakery Hahne, 9.00-18.00 hours;
Inn Dröge, from 15.00 hours, closed on Mondays.

We now start our way back. Back at the inn „Dollen Hof“, we take the opposite street and follow „XR“ through the meadows of Eversberg, passing the model plane airfield and then reaching the Gepke. Behind the Gepke, you take the second path on the left side („A1“) back to Föckinghausen.
