In the picturesque Ruhrtal lies the municipality of Bestwig, which has two of the Sauerland's major public attractions to offer.

Highlights such as the amusement park Fort Fun Abenteuerland with its famous Western town and the Sauerland visitor mine with the exciting mine tour inspire countless guests of the small community year after year. The Nuttlar Adventure Mine, which attracts sports enthusiasts from near and far for mine diving, is also one of the visitor magnets.
