Our suggestions

The following are our tips for particularly nice and interesting destinations:
Be sure not to miss the Karl May Festival in Elspe, which is a unique experience for all, whether young or old. Oberhundem Panorama Park, Ramsbeck mine and Fort Fun adventure park are all ideal for a great day out.
In collaboration with biologist Sandra Schulte-Braun, the Youth Hostel also offers fantastic guided nature walks.
