This tour takes you along fields, meadows and streams, mostly on cycle paths or farm tracks through the villages of Sunderan. Along the way, you will pass the 'Stockum Halt' memorial stone and the Bönkhauser Bachtal. In the center of the village of Endorf stands the 'Strackenhof', the oldest stone house in the Kurköln Sauerland. Almost in ruins, it has been lovingly renovated in recent years and now houses a branch of the registry office in Sundern (viewing possible).

In Sundern, near the Severin company, you can stop off at the "HOF-Cafe".

Further highlights of the tour are the Sorp dam with its cascading overflow of the Sorpesee, the equalizing pond below and the power station. In Langscheid, there are numerous opportunities to rest and relax on the beautiful Sorpe promenade or in the restaurants.
