The unique, scenic countryside of the Sauerland offers imposing mountains, crystal-clear lakes and green forests. After a hard day's work or on the weekend, you can enjoy hiking or jogging along the Rothaarsteig trail and mountain biking through imposing forests. You can also try sailing, climbing or skiing in the largest ski resort north of the Alps. The region offers a diverse range of activities, and lets you find the perfect work-life balance.
Unlike many urban areas, the land and property prices in the region allow many in the community to fulfil their dream of owning their own home. Despite this, cities such as Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Bielefeld or Münster are just a short drive along the autobahn away. The Sauerland therefore offers a unique combination of natural tranquillity and urban bustle.
A strong economy, excellent infrastructure and a huge variety of leisure activities ensure a high quality of life, making the region the perfect home for the whole family.
