By bike through the Sauerland

On the move in the Hochsauerland

Hills, mountains, forests and valleys, nature parks and cycle paths invite you to go biking in the Hochsauerland. Whether mountain biking, road cycling or pleasure cycling - we have cycling tours for every level. For trained cyclists, for example, the tour to the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park. For the inexperienced, the route of the Bike Arena Sauerland - from Hallenberg to Galgenberg - on 20 km through the fields of the Hochsauerland. Beautiful! Those who like a little motor assistance can take off on e-bikes. And if you're a pro, take a ride to Winterberg.

Nuhne Valley Cycle Route from Hallenberg to Lake Edersee

Cycle along the idyllic Nuhne river to the beautiful Edersee lake. The 30 km long trail starts in Winterberg-Züschen.

Your first destination: Hallenberg. As a guest of the DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & SPA, it is a good idea to start here first. Via the "Aue" (cycle path R49) you cycle towards the Nuhnewiesen nature reserve. The tour continues along the former railway line and the Nuhnewiesen nature trail and leads you through the enchanting landscape to Allendorf/Eder. There you will join the Ederradweg, one of the top cycle paths in Germany, which follows the Eder for 180 km from the Siegerland to where it flows into the Fulda. The path takes you all the way to the 12 km² Edersee lake. How about a swim before biking back to Hallenberg?

The cycle routes are well signposted, just like the hiking trails. You can find all the cycle routes in our detailed hiking map.
