Diverse routes for everyone

The SGV's decision to organise the German Hiking Day 2019 proves that our region is a wonderful hiking area in a varied natural environment.

At any time of year, thousands of hikers of all ages follow the well-signposted routes in the Schmallenberger Sauerland. Depending on your preference and level of difficulty, there are numerous routes, refreshment stops and attractions to choose from.


Your cycling adventure in Schmallenberg

Schmallenberg is located directly on the famous SauerlandRadring, an 84-kilometre cycle circuit that leads past numerous towns, villages, attractions and places to stop for refreshments. The SauerlandRadring was mainly built on a former railway line and offers a relaxed and varied cycling experience.

Depending on your fitness level, you can choose a route that suits you and enjoy the Sauerland by bike or e-bike.


Enjoy golf in Schmallenberg

Boogie, FORE & Green is the name of the game at Schmallenberg Golf Club, just a few kilometres away. Leisure golfers can explore the Sauerland from the golf course on a total of four 18-hole courses.

An attractive golf course awaits you, which fulfils all wishes for a few varied hours of golf. Regular golf taster courses and a 6-hole short course, which can also be played without a licence to play, round off the golf offer.


A fascinating excursion destination in the Sauerland

The sacred mountain of the Sauerland is right on our doorstep and is a popular, mysterious and striking destination for a half-day excursion.

On the summit plateau of the Wilzenberg you will find a 28 metre high summit cross, a chapel with 14 Stations of the Cross and the 17 metre high viewing tower, which gives you a magnificent panoramic view of the Land of 1000 Mountains. 


Hiking in the Sauerland splendour

The Rothaarsteig offers unlimited hiking fun in the Sauerland countryside, breathtaking views, art and culture and, with a bit of luck, even a view of the free-roaming bison herd.

The Rothaarsteig is well marked and described in detail on hiking maps. We have maps and all the information you need for your next hiking tour on the Rothaarsteig.


Experience the heart of the Sauerland

The town of Schmallenberg is the centre of the Schmallenberger Sauerland. Here you can stroll, shop, enjoy and linger amidst the colourful hustle and bustle of a special small town.

The shopping offer differs significantly from the "normal" offer of other cities and will inspire you. Schmallenberg is the ideal starting point for your stay in the Schmallenberger Sauerland.


Leisure activities – Winter


Pure winter fun

The largest ski area north of the Alps is just 20 km away. 27.5 kilometres of pistes and 26 lifts await you. The ski carousel guarantees fun on the slopes for everyone - from beginners to professionals. Ski schools, toboggan slopes and cosy huts round off the "white" offer.

And the ski bus starts just 200 metres from our hotel - a perfect start to your fun on the slopes.


Cross-country skiing paradise and snow park

Cross-country skiers also get their money's worth here. A total of almost 200 km of machine-groomed trails await you - snow conditions permitting. And just 7 km away is the Snowpark Westfeld with snow-making facilities and floodlights.


Discover snowy landscapes

Away from the ski hustle and bustle, there are wonderful winter hiking trails at your disposal. Cleared and clearly marked, they lead you into the snow-covered landscape and to marvellous distant views. Experience winter from a new, beautiful and healthy perspective.
