Nestled in the beautiful Sauerland and the Sauerland Rothaargebirge Nature Park, Meinerzhagen offers a delightful hiking and leisure landscape. This heart-shaped cycle route takes us from the Meinerzhagen district of Valbert via numerous villages to the Listertalsperre dam. Crossing the dam wall that separates the Lister and Biggesee lakes, the route then follows the Lister towards Kalberschnacke, where there is the opportunity to swim and stop for a bite to eat*. After crossing the bridge, the route continues past the Hunswinkel bathing area with footbridge via Wilkenberg back to Valbert, the starting point of our route.

*Gut Kalberschnacke is currently closed, but you can get snacks and drinks at the kiosk.



From the church, head in the direction of the outdoor pool and from there take the K7 (combined cycle/footpath) in the direction of Echternhagen. At Echternhagen, turn sharp right onto the main road. At the crossroads, turn left steeply uphill in the direction of Ebberg/Sellenrade. Go over the next crossroads on the crest in the direction of Sellenrade, through Eckertsmühle to the crossroads and then right to Sellenrade. Follow the road through Sellenrade to the crossroads, then turn right onto "Wesetalstraße". In Beukenbeul, turn right onto the dirt road and ride parallel to the main road. Keep left at the fork in Weschede and continue to the main road in Papiermühle. Turn right there and left again before the petrol station. From Listerscheid, continue uphill in the direction of Wamge. In Wamge, keep right and follow the road towards Eichen. Cross the crossroads and continue to Eichen until you reach the crossroads, turn left there and immediately take the next right to the Listermauer. Cross the dam and continue along the Lister to Kalberschnacke, turn right over the bridge and then left towards Hunswinkel. In Hunswinkel, turn left at the first fork in the road towards Meinerzhagen and immediately right after the small stone bridge towards Eseloh. Follow the road until the crossroads, then turn left towards Valbert. In Wilkenberg, go straight on in the sharp bend to the farm, then continue to the crossroads and turn right there. Follow the road to the fork, then turn right to the main road. Cross the road and ride into Valbert back to the church.
