Schmallenberg offers everything that promises enjoyment, active vacations and family fun: diverse hiking and biking trails, regional cuisine and warm hosts*. And all this in the midst of hilly countryside, tranquility and idyllic half-timbered villages.
In Schmallenberg, guests can indulge themselves, experience special moments and actively explore the area. They appreciate the special silence in nature just as much as the qualitative hiking and biking offers and the cordiality of the people who value and care for their homeland: A herb educator from HeimatFreu(n)de who shows you local wild herbs, a hotel chef who takes his guests on a hiking tour or serves a delicious forest menu - here, everyday life quickly recedes into the distance.
If you let your gaze wander here, you will discover wooded mountain ridges, romantic valleys and picturesque villages where one half-timbered house follows the next. The region is located in the middle of the Sauerland Rothaargebirge Nature Park, which is best explored on the Rothaarsteig. And many other themed hiking and biking trails lead guests through the peaceful nature and up to heights with great views. You can get a great view, for example, from the more than ten-meter-high Wilzenberg tower, from the Heid nature reserve "Sommerseite" and from the 27-hole panoramic golf course near Winkhausen. In case of bad weather, the region also offers exciting vacation moments with its diverse excursion destinations and events.
Holidaymakers can choose between hotels, inns, vacation apartments and mobile home sites and find a temporary home anywhere. The vacation farms of the Schmallenberg Kinderland are also well adapted to the needs of families and enable cheerful farm vacations.
