"Iserlohn" () is a city in the Märkischer Kreis district, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is the largest city by population and area within the district and the Sauerland region. Also the police headquarters of the district are in Iserlohn.

eograph
Iserlohn is located at the north end of the Sauerland near the Ruhr river.

istor
The Pancratius church (also called Bauernkirche) was founded in around 985, but the first written document mentioning "lon" dates only from 1150. In 1237 the Count of the Mark gave Iserlohn municipal rights. In 1975 the city, which had been an urban district before, incorporated the surrounding ex-municipalities of Letmathe, Hennen, Sümmern and Kesbern, and became part of the district "Märkischer Kreis". As a larger mid-sized city, Iserlohn, however, still has a special status as compared to most other municipalities in the district. This means that the city takes on tasks more usually performed by the district (e.g. social and youth affairs) so that in some ways it is comparable to an urban district.

As an important industrial city in the Ruhr region, during the post-WWII era starting in 1953 Canadian and British military under NATO were garrisoned here and in surrounding municipalities (Hemer, where a large Canadian Army housing area was located to house Canadian Army personnel and their families, and Deilinghofen where two of the Canadian Army barracks were located (Fort Prince of Wales and Fort McLeod). There were also garrisons stationed at Werl and Soest/Bad Sassendorf).

Within Iserlohn itself the Canadian Army had barracks in former Panzer barracks and renamed the Barracks Fort Beausejour and Fort Qu"Appelle.

After 1970, following the transfer of Canadian troops to the Black Forest Region, these barracks in Iserlohn and Deilinghofen, as well as the barracks located in Werl and Soest, were either transferred to British, back to the Bundeswehr, or converted to civilian use. The Canadian housing in Hemer (Private Married Quarters or "PMQs") was converted to civilian housing.
A lot of Iserlohner Frauleins married service personnel and left for their new country Canada in the sixties, amongst them: Brigitte Floeren (Perth, ON) Gaby Glingener (Greenwood N.S.) Renate Wilke (Burnaby B.C.) Helga Eckart (Calgary, AB) Barbara Seebode (Qualicum B.C.) If you are one of the many please add your maiden name...

"Town hall"
"Danzturm"
The Dechenhöhle was discovered in 1868 during the construction of the railway line Hagen-Iserlohn. 360m are accessible for visitors, and lots of stalactites make it a spectacular sight.

The Danzturm, located atop the southern hill overlooking the old city, is a landmark and featured on the logo of the local brewery (Iserlohner Pilsner). The tower features spectacular views of the valley and surrounding hills and is open to the public with a small "stube" at the base.

port

The city is home of the Iserlohn Roosters, a DEL (first-division) ice hockey team. They came into the DEL in 2000 and developed from a low-budget-team to a solid team, which battles every year for a Playoff-spot. The club plays its homegames at the Eissporthalle Iserlohn, which holds 4967 spectators. The original club "EC Deilinghofen" was founded in 1959 and went bankrupt in 1987, the second club "ECD Sauerland" exists from 1988 to 1994. 1994 the "Iserlohner EC" was founded whereof the Roosters came to the DEL.

chützenfes
Every year a part of the Iserlohner culture is the Schützenfest at Alexanderhöhe with its Parkhalle and the Friedensfest at Bauernkirche.

oat of arm
In the middle of the coat of arms is Saint Pancras ("St. Pancratius"), patron of the oldest church in Iserlohn. He is depicted between two towers of the historic city wall. The checked fess below is derived from the arms of the Counts of the Mark.
