The Sauerland awaits its visitors with plenty of variety: bubbling springs, promising mountains, foreign forests, lush green meadows and sparkling lakes. Through the beautiful landscape meandering trails are waiting to be explored by you. In this collection we present twelve day tours in the Sauerland, which are as varied as the region. The hikes vary in length and difficulty. So you can pick out your favorites and discover the Sauerland on foot, depending on the shape of the day.

Learn more about the history of mining in the region or get acquainted with geology. You'd rather go upstairs? Then climb the highest mountains in North Rhine-Westphalia and enjoy the panoramas of the numerous observation towers. You like legends and myths? Then come on the hike starting from Winterberg-Züschen at your expense. You just want to enjoy the tranquility of nature? No problem, also you will find enough possibilities.

The tours take you through the beautiful nature, but also through the typical villages in the Sauerland. So you can enjoy in the regional restaurants, the hearty cuisine of the region after a long day of hiking. Near each starting point you will find rest stops. For most walks, it is still worthwhile to pack some snacks. If you plan a longer stay in the Sauerland, you can for example open your base camp in Iserlohn or Winterberg. There you have a large selection of accommodation.
