Meschede

Discover the vibrant regional administration and university town of Meschede! From hours spent relaxing on the Hennesee lake to the easygoing hustle and bustle in the pedestrian zone: Meschede combines all of these.

Meschede is the administrative centre of the Hochsauerlandkreis region and is located directly at the foot of the Hennesee lake. The landscapes of the Arnsberger Wald forest nature park and the Homert hill surround the attractive shopping town.

The region around the Hennesee lake is fascinating at any time of the year due to the wonderful location in the middle of extensive forest areas. The holiday region is popular among hikers on the Mescheder Höhenwanderweg (Meschede hilltop trail) or the Bestwiger Panoramaweg (Bestwig panorama trail) and captivates visitors with wonderful villages such as Eversberg with its historic centre, Freienohl with the cupola tower or Remblinghausen with its old sawmill.

In the Ruhr-Valme-Elpetal close by, there is the Fort Fun leisure park and the Sauerland visitors’ mine, two of the major attractions in the Sauerland region. Not far from the village of Wasserfall, there is the only natural waterfall in North Rhine-Westphalia, the "Plästerlegge". The Heimatmuseum Eversberg local history museum and Eversberg castle ruins are also worth a visit, with the latter providing hikers with a viewing tower over the Ruhrtal valley.

From hotel to holiday home - in Meschede, you’ll find countless accommodation options for a relaxing holiday.
