At around 35 kilometers you will discover the surroundings of Winterberg during this tour, not only taking in idyllic vantage points, but also a few real biker sights.From the start it is relatively flat out of Winterberg and then on a long descent down to Siedlinghausen. With a little detour to "Käppelchen" you can bring your calves to operating temperature and arrived at the top to enjoy the great view of the cozy village in the Sauerland. Another small downhill, then it goes uphill quite a while. Because we lead you to the second highest mountain of NRW, the Kahler Asten. Climbing that is just part of a bike holiday in Winterberg. The breathtaking view over the Sauerland will reward you princely for every pedal turn. If you want to buy the already great view still a cream dome, you can climb on the branch tower. It is one of the landmarks of Winterberg and houses the well-known weather station, the tower restaurant and a natural history exhibition.On the way back, make a stop at Bikepark Winterberg before you can enjoy the varied trails of the Winterberger Trail Park. If you still have time and energy, both locations offer to end the day on the bike, until you are tired. Both Bikepark and Trail Park are just a stone's throw away from the center.
This tour has two faces. Both are really nice - but very different. The first part of this trip is rather cozy and leads you over beautiful Bahntrassenradwege (inter alia over the Linspher bike path) right through the Sauerland. Here it rolls almost by itself: Until the outskirts of Hallenberg it goes steadily downhill.In Hallenberg offers a little break. There are some cozy cafes that invite you for a break and where you can fortify yourself. With full power you are then ready for the second part of the tour, which presents itself clearly demanding. No wonder - the way back to Winterberg is all about exceptional viewpoints. You can enjoy the view from a huge wooden chair, let your gaze wander over the mountain heath of Hilmesberg or climb the Bollerberg observation tower with panoramic views of the Rothaargebirge at the highest point of the tour.After that you almost made it. About beautiful single trails and dirt roads it goes in a slight up and down to the starting point in Winterberg.

This short mountain bike round takes you through the valley of the Nameless down to Siedlinghausen and past two of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the area. Here you can just relax and let the idyll of the Sauerland act on you. Located in the middle of the forest, the turquoise waters of the Bergsee and Silbersee offer the perfect setting for a short rest.For the way back you change the valley and follow from then on the Ruhr. The river, which gave its name to a metropolis, is here in the Sauerland, shortly after its source, still a gently babbling brook, which you follow upriver, until you are back again in Winterberg.
This tour starts with a true fireworks in terms of Winterberg bike highlights. It starts in the Trail Park Winterberg, where you take to warm up a few really nice singletrack under the studs. If you like that, you can come back any time. The Trail Park is just a stone's throw from the city center and there is much more to discover here.Directly opposite you enter the Bikepark Winterberg. Once you pedal up the Ettelsberg, from where you have a nice overview of Germany's most popular bike park. The Contitrack takes you back to the bike station and gives you a first impression of the park and its possibilities. Again, it is worthwhile to come back. The bike park has plenty of downhill trails for you, two lifts make sure that you get back to the start quickly and effortlessly.It becomes much quieter when you reach the summit of the Kahler Asten. From NRW's second highest mountain you have a fantastic all-round view - spectacular panoramas, wherever you look. On clear days you can see the Astenturm up to a hundred kilometers away - as far as the Großer Feldberg in the Taunus, the Wasserkuppe in the Rhön and the Brocken in the Harz mountains.In the further course of the tour we show you the quiet sides of the Sauerland. In Neuastenberg an idyllic café is waiting for you, in Züschen you can marvel at the picturesque old half-timbered houses and in Hesborn you can look at the show-mill charcoal, as in the Sauerland earlier charcoal was produced.Back in Winterberg, you can choose one of the cozy restaurants, make yourself comfortable in the beer garden and let the many, beautiful impressions of the tour pass by.
This beautiful round takes you from Winterberg to Niedersfeld, from there to the Hochheide, down to Elkeringhausen and back to the starting point. Especially the Hocheide provides impressive and unforgettable landscapes, which you can crown with a visit to the "Naturkino" towards the end of the tour. A true blogbuster for the senses!But one after anonther. The tour starts relaxed with the downhill to Niedersfeld. The mixture of bike paths, gravel paths and easy singletrack holds no rough surprises for you - a loose way to curl up and get warm. In Niedersfeld you can, if you want, strengthen again - because now it goes to the preserves. The Hochheide does not bear its name for nothing: it goes up to over 800 meters. As a reward, you can relax in the rustic Hochheidehütte and enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful, wide heathland.The way back leads you over a rapid descent down to Elkeringhausen. On the way there is a stop at the natural cinema. This is a really nice place for a quiet break, because instead of loud action movies, the contemplative view expects you through a wooden frame on the beautiful landscape of the Sauerland. Strengthened with these great impressions, you can tackle the climb back to Winterberg quite relaxed.
To the observation tower on the heath head and along the border with Hesse leads this quite lonely round. At the beginning it is quite crisp to the point, because to Heidkopf are about 300 meters to overcome. The far view and later the journey pay for it over the heights of the Pastorenwiese.From the market place in Hallenberg it first goes on asphalt, later on gravel steeply up to the Heidkopf. A detour to the summit tower is worthwhile, because the view is terrific. It continues almost without climbs up to the Pastorenwiesen and further down to Trambach, a small settlement. Then you drive along the Grenzweg first light and then rapidly downhill until you are back in Hallenberg.
All roads lead ... to the Bald Asten! Also, if you have moved your Sauerland district in the beautiful Hallenberg, worth a tour to the second highest mountain in North Rhine-Westphalia and one of the landmarks of the region, the branch tower.From Hallenberg you start at first leisurely, later a bit steeper uphill to Winterberg, where in the busy center offers a leisurely break in one of the many cafes or restaurants. Strengthened and refreshed, you are ready for the packed load of Sauerland mountain biking: The Flowige Trail Park Winterberg, the varied bike park and the ride up to the Kahler Asten pamper you with everything that goes with it for an unforgettable bike tour.Back then it goes over wonderfully flowy single trails or relaxing dirt roads back to Hallenberg. A wonderful up and down, with the pleasurable downhill the much larger share belongs. In the cozy half-timbered town, you can then end the day in peace.
Two waters are the main protagonists of this short round from Winterberg to the northeast via Niedersfeld and Hildfeld. The first is big and standing: The Hillebachsee invites you with a beach and wakeboarding facility to linger. Whether you lie down on the shore or become active yourself - such a refreshing break will be good on any bike tour in the summer!Body number two is small and splashes away: The Ruhrquelle is a place as inconspicuous as it is fantastic. It's amazing how much these few square meters around three kilometers from Winterberg have shaped a whole region. The Ruhr, which is nothing more than a small trickle, springs from a small forest. Incidentally, this place is also good for a break - albeit a lot more contemplative than at the lake.
