Cast your eye over the land of 1,000 hills
The Sauerland is the first region to be crowned a “Quality Hiking Region” and with the Sauerland Hiking Villages or the Sauerland-Höhenflug offers first-class hiking routes with wonderful panoramic views. To be accurate, the total of 2,711 mountains over 400 m high provide a unique backdrop. In summer, cycling enthusiasts enjoy themselves on the Sauerland-Radring just as much as the water sports enthusiasts on the large reservoirs. In winter, the Sauerland with its winter sports arena is the largest ski area to the north of the Alps. Top quality sporting events on the ski jumping hill Willingen as well as the bob, luge and skeleton track in Winterberg are major attractions.
