On two wheels through valleys and over mountains
In the Schmallenberg Sauerland and the vacation region of Eslohe, a wide range of possibilities await fans of bikes and the like. Family-compatible offers with moderately ascending routes are also included. Discover our region - whether leisurely or with an adrenaline rush, whether alone or with the whole family - just as it suits you.
Well-paved and detailed routes such as the SauerlandRadring, the Kinderland trekking route or the routes of the Bike Arena Sauerland offer cyclists of all kinds an ideal field of activity.
When headwinds and inclines dampen your spirits, the push of a button can change everything. It switches on a quiet, environmentally friendly electric motor that intervenes with support, depending on how steep the incline is and how much assistance you have set. E-bikes have conquered cycling tourism in the land of a thousand mountains. Joint cycling trips of differently trained people thus become a pleasurable, nature-oriented vacation experience for everyone. Try it out for yourself. E-biking is really easy and great fun!

84 kilometers on former railroad tracks and crossing the "Bat Tunnel" - the SauerlandRadring introduces itself.
This route connects the towns of Finnentrop, Eslohe, Schmallenberg and Lennestadt.

Small museums, lovingly restored witnesses of former industrial and craft culture, natural adventure pools and a 700 m long bat tunnel (open from April to October) make this tour a versatile cycling pleasure.
The so-called "Hennesee loop" of the SauerlandRadring closes the gap to the well-known RuhrtalRadweg and is worth a bike tour in itself.
