Sights[edit]

Protestant St. John's Church in the centre of Windhausen is a very unusual half-timbered building with a flèche covered with slate. There are many well-preserved half-timbered houses in the middle of the village. Close to the village, the impressive ruins of Windhausen Castle (Burg Windhausen) are worth a visit.[1]
