The municipality of Kalefeld, with its districts of Dögerode, Düderode, Eboldshausen, Echte, Kalefeld, Oldenrode, Oldershausen, Sebexen, Westerhof, Wiershausen and Willershausen, lies on the western edge of the Harz Mountains and is surrounded by fertile land, numerous streams and wooded mountain ranges.
Almost the entire forest-covered north, south and east of the municipality is designated as a large recreational area.
A special highlight is the Roman-Germanic battlefield discovered in 2008 in the municipality of Kalefeld. The historic battlefield is located on the 'Harzhorn', at the top of a kilometre-long, forested ridge that runs towards the western edge of the Harz Mountains. Archaeologists have excavated 600 finds on the 1.5 kilometre long and 500 metre wide site. Among them are coins, but also arrowheads, catapult bolts, sandal nails, horse and chariot harnesses and a Roman pioneer axe. Regular guided tours are offered in the excavation area.
Hiking enthusiasts will find a well-developed and marked network of hiking trails in the Westerhof district. The Upper Harz region can be reached in a few minutes. The Düderode district welcomes its guests with a camping site, a heated lido, a beach volleyball court and a miniature golf course.
Also worth seeing are the 'Kalefeld White Water Church', the "Ernhaus", the Willershausen moated castle, Oldershausen Castle and the natural monument of the Willershausen clay pit.
On the circular cycle route "Churches and Chapels", visitors discover the churches and chapels of the municipality of Kalefeld on an exciting tour.
