Meschede is the district town of the Hochsauerlandkreis and is located directly at the foot of the Hennesee. The landscapes of the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park and the Homert extend around the attractive shopping town. The region around the Hennesee fascinates in every season by the beautiful location in the middle of extensive forests. The vacation area inspires hikers on the Meschede Höhenwanderweg as well as cyclists on the RuhrtalRadweg and the HenneseeSchleife.

Here you will also find beautiful villages such as Eversberg with its historic center, Freienohl or Remblinghausen with the old sawmill. The Way of St. James, also known as the Sauerland-Camino on this section, also leads through the Jakobusdorf Remblinghausen. The Klosterweg (Monastery Trail), which connects the Abtei Königsmünster in Meschede with the Bergkloster in Bestwig, and the Stiftskirche St. Walburga in the center of Meschede also offer pilgrims an interesting destination. Also worth seeing are the Eversberg Museum of Local History and the Burgruine Eversberg, which serves as a lookout tower over the Ruhrtal for hikers.

The Hennesee attracts visitors from near and far with many different leisure activities and offers a wide range of activities from relaxed to action-packed. The nearby Ruhr-Valme-Elpetal in the municipality of Bestwig is home to the Fort Fun amusement park and the Sauerland visitor mine, two further public attractions in the Sauerland region.
