The GeoRadroute Ruhr-Eder takes you on a 210-kilometer tour through the Sauerland in North Rhine-Westphalia and through the Waldecker Land in Hessen. You will not only take a bike tour, but also a little journey of discovery through the geological history of these regions: In the Geopark GrenzWelten you will get interesting insights into the geology and the development of the landscape here.Start of the tour is in Winterberg, from where you take a little detour to the source of the Ruhr. First you cycle through the beautiful landscape of the Sauerland, enjoy beautiful views and come again and again through tranquil villages like Olsberg or Brilon, which invite you to take a little rest.About Willingen and Korbach lead you beautiful bike paths - partly on wonderfully prepared Bahntrassenradwege - in Waldecker country, where the impressive and beautiful Ederstausee waiting for you. Along the lake shore, you can enjoy the flattest section of the tour - pure enjoyment! How about a small boat trip across the lake? By boat you also have the opportunity to shorten the tour a bit, if you want.Past the National Park Kellerwald-Edersee you cycle in the further course of the tour through the hilly Eder-Bergland. However, the cycle path usually leads you flat through the valley. The drive along the Eder is pure pleasure, while the impressive hills of this beautiful landscape pile up to the left and right of you.In Allendorf you leave the Eder and make your way back to the Sauerland. On an all-round beautiful Bahntrassenradweg it goes back to Winterberg - this bike path is so beautiful and so varied that you deserve the last few meters to the finish. In Winterberg, you can relax in one of the numerous restaurants and cafes of the Sauerland stronghold in peace and quiet.The GeoRadroute Ruhr-Eder you take due to their lays best in several stages before.
