The start is at the Waldenburg camping site near Attendorn. The route initially heads south along the western shore of Biggesee on asphalt paths towards Neu-Listernohl. You cycle along the dam and pass the Café Leuchtturm. Always close to the lake, you soon reach the Listerdamm. The dam wall separates the water masses of the Bigge and Listertalsperre dams.

The route continues around the Sonderner Kopf. There, the "Blobbase" awaits the daring, who can be catapulted high into the Lupft by a second person and then land in the cool waters of the lake.

Shortly before Eichhagen, we have reached the southernmost point of the tour and now cycle further along the eastern side of the Biggesee until we reach the starting point in Waldenburg Bay again.

Bathing opportunities or the combination with a boat tour ensure a varied tour for the whole family.
