Amecke Promenade with Airlebnisweg


59846 Sundern



The newly designed promenade with "Airlebnisweg" in Amecke, on the forebay of the Sorpesee, is a real asset for the town, its residents and its guests. The beautiful lakeside promenade is around one kilometer long. In addition to the visually appealing local recreation facility, the health trail "Airlebnisweg" with many exciting stations to linger and discover is the absolute highlight. Under the motto "Amecke's Water and Breathing Active Airlebnisweg", the themes of "water" and "healthy breathing" are linked together and invite Sundern's citizens and guests to actively participate.

The 3.4 km long circular trail "Airlebnisweg Amecke" is barrier-free and includes more than 15 individual stations on the overarching theme of water and breathing as core components of life. This theme is conveyed at each station of the trail in a varied, experience-oriented way and with the integration of natural conditions.

Why not visit the water experience area and the water fountain, try out the barefoot path or let yourself be seduced in the historic aroma and fragrance garden...

Directly opposite the promenade is the landing stage of the "MS Sorpesee", which will take you comfortably to the other shore of the Sorpesee and back again. Departure times between Good Friday and the end of October in Corona times: Please check for any deviations due to the coronavirus before setting off on a boat trip at

  • The listening tube: Listen to the sound of nature! Listen carefully... Maybe you can find out what sound is hidden behind the tube and where it comes from.

  • The Bernoulli energy equation: Daniel Bernoulli's knowledge and experiments on water pressure and flow velocity have been used in the construction of water features and fountains since the 18th century. The difference in height between the wetland biotope on the other side of the road and the spring in front of you means that the water gushes out without any technical assistance.

Creation of the "Airlebnsiweg": As part of the REGIONALE 2013 project "Sauerland-Seen", a near-natural and interactive adventure trail was built around the forebay of the Sorpesee lake in Amecke in 2014/15.
