Especially hikers and nature lovers will get their money's worth when they camp on the Sauerland. The region is characterized by its mountainous landscapes and dense forests. Rivers such as the Ruhr and the Lippe attract you for bicycle tours and canoe trips. Bathing enthusiasts can spend the night near beautiful reservoirs. Culturally, high-altitude castles such as the facilities at Arnsberg and Klusenstein are particularly worth seeing. The artistically designed wooden and slate houses are also impressive.
