Spend idyllic days at the lakes with their crystal-clear, blue water!
The lakes offer a range of activities to entice sailors, divers, surfers, anglers or swimmers. There are many wonderful places to bathe at both lakes in the Biggesee-Listersee nature experience region.
The lakes shine brightly in the sun like sapphires in the landscape of the Sauerland Rothaargebirge nature park. The region extends along Lakes Biggesee and Listersee to include the towns of Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen, Olpe and the municipality of Wenden. The opportunities for leisure activities in this area are limitless with the extensive forests of the Ebbe Mountains. In summer it is an oasis of relaxation in the clear, fresh air. There is also an unlimited number of leisure facilities and sightseeing opportunities in this area.
There are numerous offers around the lakes for sailing, diving, surfing, fishing or swimming. There are many dreamy bathing spots on the two lakes in the Biggesee-Listersee nature experience area, such as in Windebruch, Heiligenberg or Hunswinkel am Listersee, these are districts of Meinerzhagen. Or directly opposite at the Kalberschnacke in Drolshagen.
There is also a “Blob base” at Sondener Kopf in Olpe, adjacent to an enormous bathing island – the only one in North Rhine-Westphalia. There is plenty of space at the “Am Schnütgenhof‘’ bathing area in Attendorn on Lake Biggesee. With an area of 7500 m2 you are bound to find a quiet place to relax. You can also swim in one of the many open-air pools if you wish.
If the weather does not cooperate, there are also a number of indoor pools you can use.
Of course, you can also experience the Biggesee from a completely different perspective – namely on the boat of the Biggesee passenger shipping company. From mid-April to mid-October, the MS Westfalen glides over the Biggesee and it says: "Welcome on board!"
