A "Westphalian sea" nestles in the landscape in the northern Sauerland. Of course, the Möhnesee is filled with clear fresh water, but since it is the dam with the largest surface area in the region, its epithet deliberately leaves a little more room for imagination. Its abundance of nature makes Möhnesee a destination of longing for those seeking energy and balance in the outdoors. Hiking trails that lead, for example, to a sound forest or to the towering Möhne lake tower can be discovered here. The popular Sauerland-Waldroute long-distance hiking trail skims the southern shore of the lake. Guests can also explore the surroundings on bike paths and enjoy one or two culinary surprises during their rest. The LIZ Landscape Information Center is dedicated to environmental education; with imaginative hands-on activities, it brings people closer to nature and its phenomena. A guided tour over and even inside the imposing, historic dam wall appeals to those interested in history and architecture. A walk through the modern, expansive lakeside park in the Körbecke district really does evoke a bit of a maritime feeling. The skater park and the play and exercise areas range from sporty to spectacular. The Möhnesee is also known for events that get many people moving, such as the Lake Run or the Möhnesee Triathlon. Of course, it also offers relaxed water fun, in the lidos, on a sailing trip or a ride on the passenger boat. Further information is provided by the Möhnesee's own homepage.
