Biggesee-Listersee tourist office

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. 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 to promote its own tourist region. It consists of the communities of the Attendorn, Drolshagen, Meinerzhagen and Olpe lakes and the municipality of Wenden.
