Willingen is the mountain bike hotspot in the Sauerland
At the Willinger bike world you can experience everything, mountain biking consists of. Equal, if you look for family tours with a manageable length to explore the region, for long routes to get to your limit or for challenging trails – in Willingen and its surrounding you find all of these. A great variety of tours leads through the Sauerland, with its hills and mountains. Thereby you will cross high plateaus, deep forests, beautiful valleys and green hayfields.
In total 12 mountain bike tours, between 18 and 98 km, are waiting for you. Some of them are fully sign-posted and are part of the Bike-Arena Sauerland, a supra-regional trail net for mountain bikers.
Those of you, who love fast and curvy downhills, are also very welcome in Willingen. At the Freeride-course (nearly) everyone will get one’s money worth. If you first want to practice your skills in jumping and steep curves, the exercise parkour behind the ice rink is the right place to go.
