The High-Sauerland, also known as 'the land of a 1000 mountains' contains high peaks, deep valleys, rivers, curvy roads, hilly meadows, vast forests and cozy little villages. The Sauerland is truly one of the most beautiful and diverse natural areas in Germany, if not the best! For hikers there is a network of trails providing every level of difficulty. This network, which is hundreds of (beautiful) kilometers long, is varied by nature and offers magnificent panoramic views of the surroundings. The city of Winterberg, situated close to the Dutch border and with a population of just 4500, is known primarily for its huge winter sports facilities. Yet there is plenty to do throughout the year: mountain biking, abseiling, gliding, golf and mini-golf. The surrounding area offers a wide variety of cultural, architectural and historical monuments as well. Furthermore, you will find a variety of nature and wildlife parks here, just waiting to be explored. In the immediate vicinity there are numerous opportunities for children. For example, there's the Peter Pan-Neverland amusement park; the Mäuseweg, with all sorts of things waiting to be discovered in the forest; and the lookout tower on the Kahler Asten. For older children there is a climbing route, summer toboggan run and bungee jumping. If the weather is not so nice, you can go to one of the pools in the area complete with water slides and lots of water fun!
