Forty kilometers of shoreline make the bicycle an ideal way to explore Lake Möhnesee.  The Sauerland region’s biggest reservoir and its hinterlands are embedded in a bike-path network with numbered junctions, so that cyclists merely need to “follow the numbers.”  

Dotted with forests and lakes, the terrain is ideal for bike tours of varying difficulty.  You can opt for a leisurely ride around the lake with the whole family.  Or you can challenge yourself by pedaling up some of the Sauerland’s rising foothills.  Or zip over the Haarstrang Ridge on an e-bike and traverse the fertile plains of the Soester Börde.  The cycling tours here are as diverse as the area itself.  

Would you prefer to stick to pre-planned routes?  No problem – a series of clearly marked-out “theme paths” is waiting to be explored.  Cultural enthusiasts will enjoy the views along the WEGMARKEN (“Milestones”) route, which passes by twelve sculptures set up as part of an artists’ initiative.  The historic route along the shore of the lake traces the over 100-year history of the Möhnetal dam that created the reservoir lake.  The Möhnetalradweg from Brilon to Neheim follows the route of the former Möhnetalbahn, a 19th-century railway.  From Neheim you can ride into the Ruhr Valley by following the Ruhrtalradweg.

Mutual consideration of all road users ensures full enjoyment on your tour around the Westphalian Sea.
