Experience the Sauerland: Visitor mine - Hennesee - SauerlandRadring
The two most beautiful and most famous bike trails of the Sauerland are waiting for you.
In Ramsbeck, ride 1.5 km into the mine on an original mine train and experience mining history 300 m underground. Enjoy a boat trip with the MS Hennesee during your bike tour on the new north loop of the SauerlandRing. The three stages are easily manageable with a medium level of fitness.
Day 1: Winterberg - Bestwig or Meschede (30-40 km)
From Bestwig or Meschede you take the train to Winterberg to start the tour on the RuhrtalRadweg at the source of the Ruhr. After 30 km through the beautiful Ruhrtal you will reach Bestwig. Here it's worth taking a detour along the Bähnchentrasse (6 km) to the Ramsbeck visitor plant, where a real miner will explain the former underground working world to you. Return to Bestwig via the "Bähnchentrasse" and then to your accommodation.
Day 2: Bestwig or Meschede - Arnsberg or Wickede (30-60 km)
From your accommodation you start in the direction of Freienohl and drive to Arnsberg or Wickede. Before you return by train, you can enjoy a walk through the historic Altstadt of Arnsberg or the beautiful center of Wickede with its spacious green areas.
Day 3: Meschede - Wennemen - Sallinghausen - Hennesee - Meschede (40 km)
You cycle to Wennemen. Here you turn left onto the new Nordschleife. This 40 km long cycle circuit connects the RuhrtalRadweg and the SauerlandRadring and leads from Wennemen to Eslohe Sallinghausen along an old railroad line. Arriving at the Hennesee you can enjoy a round trip over the reservoir and then cycle back to Meschede. Of course you can also use your Sauerland-Urlauber-Ticket on the third day.
