The Sauerland is "Germany's inspiring outdoor region" - and for good reason. Because on 5,000 square kilometers in the swinging low mountain landscape, characterized by dense forests, wide meadows and clear lakes, there are so many opportunities for experiences of all kinds.
Germany's first and largest quality hiking region is located here. Three major long-distance hiking trails cross the landscape. Numerous themed and day routes appeal to epicurean hikers. Cyclists are on the move on the numerous river and railroad tracks, enjoy nature and take it easy or use the extensive network of bike paths connected by numbered junctions for spontaneous rides.
Mountain bikers, gravel bikers and racing cyclists are challenged by the varied topography. In the midst of the densely wooded landscape, there are also five large reservoirs which, with their many activities, attract countless guests to their shores and onto the water year after year. In the cold season, the Wintersport Arena Sauerland with its wide range of ski slopes and toboggan runs is the largest winter sports area north of the Alps. This variety of experiences makes the outdoor region Sauerland one of the most popular destinations for vacationers and day trippers in North Rhine-Westphalia and in Germany.
At any time of the year, excursions and activities in the Sauerland are a very special pleasure! Here we have put together a few great tips for you:
