When I see the lake, I don't need the sea anymore!

The lakes shine like blue gemstones in the sun in the landscape of the Ebbegebirge. The region of the nature adventure area with the towns of Attendorn, Olpe, Meinerzhagen, Wenden and Drolshagen stretches along the Biggesee and Listersee and is located in the Sauerland-Rothaargebirge Nature Park. Discover the possibilities!

The region also offers you a perfect infrastructure for cycling. In addition to the typically sweeping Sauerland landscape of hills, forests and valleys, secluded roads and challenging trails offer optimal conditions. The Bigge-Lister-Höhenroute is divided into a challenging high-altitude route and an idyllic lake route. Whether you want to go on a leisurely bike ride with your family or plan a mountain bike tour - you've come to the right place. Do you already know the mountain bike park in Attendorn? If you would prefer to "experience" the tours on an e-bike, you will find further information on rental stations and charging stations.

Hiking experience

Hikers have the opportunity to explore the landscape around Biggesee and Listersee on the Bigge-Lister Trail, partly on flat routes directly along the lake and partly on challenging high-altitude routes. You may come across galloping hay bales on the KulTour, an art and landscape circular trail along the Lister, or you can set off from the Biggequelle in Wenden-Römershagen.

Olpe, Attendorn, Meinerzhagen and Wenden also have numerous and varied hiking trails to discover. The Waldweg Grenzenlos forest trail in Olpe offers a barrier-free circular trail.
