The town is nearly completely encircled by forest, and in the north is the natural park "Arnsberger Wald".The main road to reach Arnsberg is the Federal Motorway 46.

Arnsberg was built by the counts of Werl in the 11th century. They built a castle there whose remains can still be visited and are occasionally used for public celebrations. It was destroyed in the Seven Years' War in 1769.In the 12th century, old Arnsberg became the seat of Westphalian jurisdiction . Later, the city lost its independence and belonged to the Cologne area when their archbishops reigned the area. In 1816, it came under Prussian rule and was made a local administrative centre.
