Arnsberg Forest Nature Park
The Arnsberg Forest Nature Park is one of the most popular holiday destinations within North Rhine-Westphalia. Its extensive forests make it one of the largest continuous wooded areas in the whole of Germany.
This nature park covering a total area of 482 square kilometres between the Möhne and Ruhr Rivers is one of the most beautiful recreation areas on the eastern edge of the Ruhr area. Keen hikers and nature lovers are sure to delight in exploring the unspoiled low mountain landscape complete with springs, branching brooks and dense forests. Special themed trails, such as the Beaver Trail, and water sport activities on Lake Möhnesee provide plenty of opportunity for fun and adventure. One highlight is the magical, mystical Sauerland Forest Route, which covers 240 kilometres from Iserlohn to Marsberg and crosses a large chunk of the nature park.
