your time out at Edersee




Feel the power of nature, a paradise for hiking & Nordic walking in the Sauerland region
The Sauerland is one of the most densely wooded regions in Europe. Here at the border to Hesse it shows itself from its most beautiful side. The Kellerwald-Edersee National Park is a breathtaking experience. For example, hike the primeval forest trail: it goes over narrow paths, through deep gorges and high mountains. You will walk for kilometers through the centuries-old beech forests of the Unesco World Natural Heritage Site at Lake Edersee. Again and again, spectacular views of the Edersee and the valleys of the Sauerland reward you for the climbs. And along the way you will hike along historical paths: Castles, fortresses, monasteries and ruins can be found along the way.
The small stones crunch quietly under the thick soles of your hiking boots. The leaves of the old beeches rustle in the wind, birds chirp their song. It smells of fresh wood, grasses and summer. The crystal clear air flows into your lungs and with every breath you soak it up, the energy of the Sauerland. A hiking vacation at Hotel Freund is more than just an ordinary vacation at Lake Edersee. Those who lace up their hiking boots here will inevitably embark on a breathtaking tour through what are probably the most beautiful and greenest low mountain ranges in Germany.

The most beautiful hiking trails and real insider tips
You will certainly not get bored here. For our guests we also have a real insider tip: We will gladly organize a tour with a ranger through the national park. With him you dive deep into the majestic natural landscape at the foot of the Edersee. He explains to you, for example, why there used to be almost only beech forests in Germany and why they are so rare today.
Whether long-distance hike, day tour, half-day hike, Nordic walking or short walk: we have signposted appropriate hiking trails around our hotel for every requirement. In addition, numerous spectacular views and culturally and historically unique buildings await you along the way during your stage hike, day hike or long-distance hike in the Sauerland. Just ask our staff. You love the Sauerland and know the most beautiful corners. They will certainly have one or two tips for you and will be happy to plan the routes for your hiking vacation in the Sauerland together with you.
Of course, you will be pampered by us also during the hike. Because if you wish, we will be happy to pack you a lunch or a hearty backpack catering. Thus equipped, your hiking vacation will certainly be an unforgettable experience.
