Marsberg is a dynamic town. There is always something going on. Community and neighborhood festivals are celebrated in the districts, carnival and shooting matches are the highlights of the events. The economic focus is on glass, metal, plastics, wood, paper and health care. In recent years, tourism as well as the service sector have gained in importance.
Marsberg, on the edge of the Hochsauerland region, offers a wide range of activities - but is more synonymous with quiet tourism for guests who are mobile and want to find their way around the region. The vacation area in Marsberg is the Diemelstausee in the south of the city, which opens every possibility for water rats. Be it sailors, divers, swimmers or anglers, every water sports enthusiast gets his money's worth here.
Marsberg is a town on the move. Handicraft businesses of all branches and numerous medium-sized companies in the producing and processing industries form the basis for the economic power and development and play just as important a role as the traditionally located clinics of the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe. In addition, there are innovative companies in the EDP sector.
