The Tourism Association Biggesee-Listersee

The Tourism Association Biggesee-Listersee, the vacation region of the Biggesee-Listersee Nature Experience Area, extends along the picturesque shores of Biggesee and Listersee and now includes the charming cities of Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen, Olpe, and the municipality of Wenden. This idyllic region in the heart of South Sauerland provides the perfect setting for nature lovers, adventure enthusiasts, and those seeking relaxation alike. The leisure opportunities in the Nature Experience Area Biggesee-Listersee are extremely diverse, inviting visitors to discover the beauty of nature and relax throughout the year.

The association Tourism Association Biggesee-Listersee was established in 2012 as a result of the REGIONALE 2013 project, initially with the member municipalities Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen, and Olpe. In 2017, the municipality of Wenden joined.

As part of REGIONALE 2013, the Sauerland-Seen project implemented many tourism-related components in the Nature Experience Area Biggesee-Listersee, as well as at the other Sauerland lakes. Currently, REGIONALE 2025 is ongoing, and the Sauerland-Seen are once again participating with projects.

The goals of the association include promoting the tourist development of the region, networking with tourism partners and service providers, and marketing the destination as a whole. Below, our member municipalities introduce themselves.
