The lakes shine brightly in the sun like sapphires in the landscape of the Sauerland nature reserve in the Rothaar mountains. The Biggesee-Listersee nature experience area extends along Lakes Biggesee and Listersee to include the towns of Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen, Olpe and the municipality of Wenden. There is a vast range of leisure facilities in the Biggesee-Listersee nature area with the extensive forests of the Ebbe mountains nature reserve. Whether you wish to hike, cycle, swim or merely relax – there are options for all seasons!
The joint body of the Biggesee-Listersee tourist office was established on 23 August 2012 to promote its own tourist region. It consists of the communities of the Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen and Olpe lakes and the municipality of Wenden.
The region also offers a perfect infrastructure for cycling. In addition to the typically undulating Sauerland landscape with hills, woods and valleys, you will also find deserted streets and challenging trails offering optimal conditions. The Bigge-Lister cycle ring splits into a high-altitude route and a lake route.
