When you only have the weekend, but feel like going on a holiday... this trip might be exactly what you are looking for. Get in your car on a Saturday morning and be back home for diner the day after.At only a two hours drive from Arnhem (Netherlands) you'll find the lovely historic town of Arnsberg, at the borders of the beautiful Sauerland National Park in Germany. We parked our car at the local tennis club and set off on a small bikepacking expedition into the forests and hills of Sauerland. While wildcamping is forbidden in Germany, creating a bivy spot for yourself is tolerated in the Sauerland area. With this in mind we set off to the beautifully located 'Osstenstein Hütte'. The Ossenstein Hütte is a shelter in the middle of nowhere, and for us a great place to spend the night. Without riding too many kilometers, we saw a lot of beautiful places, climbed a lot of tough climbs, had some amazing views and enjoyed a couple of great local singletracks.
Upon returning to our car day, we felt like we had been gone for days.
The perfect quick escape and mini-bikepacking adventure.
The routes of day one and two, as well as some of my personal highlights can be found and used in this Komoot collection.Erwin
