Bestwig

In the picturesque Ruhrtal valley lies the community of Bestwig, which has two very important public attractions in Sauerland to offer.

In the middle of the Ruhr-Valme-Elpetal valleys is the community of Bestwig on the edge of the Arnsberger Wald forest nature park.

Visitor highlights such as the Fort Fun adventure land leisure park with its famous western town and the Sauerland visitors’ mine with the exciting pit journey are extremely popular with countless visitors to this small community every year. The Nuttlar adventure mine, which attracts diving enthusiasts from near and far to the mine diving is another visitor magnet.

On the Bestwig Panorama route, hikers repeatedly enjoy wide, breathtaking views. The wonderful small half-timbered villages such as Ostwig, with the old ruins on the Steinberg hill, or the “Christmas tree village” of Heringhausen invite visitors to stroll through them.

Not far from the village of Wasserfall, there is the only natural waterfall in North Rhine-Westphalia, the "Plästerlegge".

And the Hennesee lake close by, with its bathing bays, is a good place to enjoy a variety of leisure facilities during the summer.
