Welcome to Marsberg in the border triangle of Sauerland, Waldeck, Paderborner Land - a region with unique landscapes and countless sights. The great scenic attraction of the city area lies above all in the manifold alternation of very different individual landscapes.
A look into the past shows the extraordinarily significant history of Marsberg. And as diverse as Marsberg's history are the landmarks that reflect it. Visitors feel like the former rulers of the Middle Ages when they look at Marsberg's landmarks such as the Bilsteinturm or Buttenturm, or walk along the medieval traces of the city wall. The Stiftskirche - the landmark of Obermarsberg - towers mightily and loftily over the town.
Around Marsberg there are also wonderful destinations for excursions, hidden gems or spacious squares. The beauty of Marsberg can be discovered most intensively on guided tours and hikes. Guided tours give an impression of the town and its varied past, and guided walks offer the opportunity to get to know nature. Many supra-regional, regional, theme and local hiking trails as well as the 5-star Diemelradweg make Marsberg an interesting and varied hiking and biking area.
The exciting mining history is also particularly interesting. During a guided tour in the Besucherbergwerk Kilianstollen, more than 1400 years of mining history come alive again. Traces of mining as well as geology and the cultural landscape can be experienced on themed hiking trails.
The Diemelsee recreational region lies to the south of the town center. It is the center of attraction for all water sports enthusiasts who want to be active there or just want to take a leisurely walk around the lake. The ferry boat hiking offers hikers the possibility of a combined hiking and boat tour.
