Winter sports; In the mountains; Among nature
The High Sauerland, also known as 'the land of a 1000 mountains' consists of high peaks, deep valleys, rivers, windy roads, hilly meadows, vast forests and cozy villages. The Sauerland is truly one of the most beautiful and diverse natural areas in Germany, if not the best. For hikers there are trails of all difficulty levels and for all physical conditions which run hundreds of (beautiful) kilometers through the countryside and offer magnificent panoramic views of the surroundings. The city of Winterberg, with a population of approx. 4500 inhabitants, is mainly known for its winter sports facilities. Situated near the Dutch border, tourists will find plenty of opportunities here year round: mountain biking, abseiling, gliding, golf and mini-golf. The closest ski lift is only 50m away. The area also has wonderful cultural, architectural and historical landmarks. Several national parks and wildlife parks are located in the area and await your discovery. In the immediate vicinity there are also numerous opportunities for children. For example, there is the Peter Pan Neverland theme park; the Mäuseweg with all sorts of things waiting to be discovered in the forest; and the observation tower on the Kahler Asten. For older kids there is a climbing route, a summer toboggan run and bungee jumping. If the weather is not so good, you can visit one of the pools in the area complete with water slides and plenty of water fun!
