Golf

Several well maintained golf courses await you in Willingen’s surroundings. The nearest one is located in Brilon, just 15 km away. The golf course consists of a spacious, very well-maintained 9-hole golf course (PAR 70), which was laid out in a natural and landscape-friendly manner. It is a park landscape with hills, groves, groups of trees and watercourses. Fairways, greens and water hazards are diversely designed with magnificent panoramic views over the land of 1000 mountains.

Motorcycle paradise

In one of the most beautiful motorcycle regions of Germany, Willingen is the ideal starting point for diverse motorcycle tours. Take a curvy and challenging ride through the wooded land of 1000 mountains to sparkling lakes, interesting sights and idyllic places. Every year in mid-July the largest Harley event between Hamburg and Faak takes place in Willingen and attracts Harley bike lovers from far and close.

Take a bath in the forest!

Tender mists cover the landscape and foretell a wonderful day. As soon as the sun replaces them, go ahead and enjoy the forests in Upland. Experiencing the landscape and nature, exercising in the healthy healing climate and inspiring experiences strengthen the body, mind and soul.

The offers of forest bathing and hiking to the places of the soul will increase your well-being and regenerate you from everyday life in the green surroundings.

Scientists have found that spending time in the forest has the same effect as aromatherapy: Inhaling the essential oils that the trees release into the air strengthens the immune system. In addition, consciously noticing nature, the smell of the forest, the rough bark of the trees, the rustling of the bushes and much more calms the mind. This is “forest bathing.” Participants discover inspiring places, enjoy stillness and inner peace, and recharge their batteries. Participants experience the healing effects of the forest under expert guidance.

As soon as the trees are green again, Gisela Biedermann will offer forest bathing again next year in Willingen.
