What is the best way to describe the Sauerland? Quite apart from the fact that you should make up your own mind, let's try a few Sauerland keywords:
The landscape is characterised by diversity. Wooded mountain ranges and hilltops, glittering lakes, wide valleys with all the green shades of nature. The Sauerland has many faces.
The forest is a constant companion here. Discover the tranquillity and mystique of these large, contiguous forest areas. From wide-ranging discovery tours to relaxed circular routes, the Sauerland forests offer you a recreational experience.
Small, tranquil villages lie nestled in the landscape like little pearls. Their inhabitants are proud of spotlessly clean half-timbered houses and intact village communities.
It is called the"Land of 1,000 Mountains". As the north-eastern part of the Rhenish Slate Mountains with a total of over 2,700 elevations above 400 m, it lives up to its name. The highest elevation is the Kahle Asten near Winterberg at 841.9 m above sea level.
Natural treasures are everywhere here. The "Sauerland Rothaargebirge Nature Park" protects them and brings together rare insects, imposing bison or fast peregrine falcons in these wooded and water-rich areas.
