The romantic Kneipp spa and the beautiful holiday region of Bad Berleburg – the magical world on the Rothaarsteig, is in the middle of the Rothaargebirge natural park, nestling in one of Germany's most afforested landscapes. Beautiful landscape and largely unspoilt nature make the old royal town and its picturesque half-timbered houses in the surrounding villages especially attractive. The splendid baroque castle of the princes of Sayn-Wittgenstein is the focal point of the historic old town, and today it still characterises the town's image. The delightfully located Schlosspark, which today is used as a park by the Spa, has trees which are hundreds of years old. It is an open invitation to walking and lingering, and every step is a memory of the rich traditions of the past. The healthy surroundings of Bad Berleburg with their mild yet bracing climate, and the clear waters of the mountain streams create the perfect conditions for undertaking invigorating activities. The Bad Berleburg rehabilitation clinics, principally under the management of the Wittgensteiner Kliniken, are famous all over Germany for their first class, modern medical and therapeutic services. The HELIOS private clinic, integrated into the Wittgenstein district hospital, offers an additional service which is up to hotel standards; this is is unique in the region. The visitor to Bad Berleburg has inexhaustible opportunities to shape his stay from day to day. There are more than 800 km of marked hiking paths in the Rothaargebirge natural park for the visitor, with 24 parking places available to the hiker. Relaxing calm and unspoilt nature for the hikes are guarantees of an incomparable nature experience. As an intersection point of the long interregional hiking routes - E1 (European long distance path), the path of German unity, the Rothaarsteig, and the Wittgenstein-Sauerland Wood Sculpture Path, there is a magnificent hiking world here.
The choice of hiking trails ranges from short circular paths to the Wittgenstein Panorama Way, a 154 km trip over several days, which brings the hiker up to a height of 800 metres over the mountain ridges of the Wittgenstein region, and offers fantastic views. The new highlight of the hiking world is the Rothaarsteig, which promises "New hiking along new paths", and as the "Route of the senses" creates a new and real dimension in hiking. Another challenging hiking route is the Wittgenstein Slate path. This 15 km circular hiking route is a search for clues through the centuries, with fascinating experiences, impressions, and discoveries of nature. It has been honoured as a Premium route with the Deutsches Wandersiegel award, The 180 km Ederauen cycle route, one of the most beautiful cycle routes along river valleys, passes through Bad Berleburg and provides breath-taking impressions of an unspoiled landscape blessed by nature. Another hiking highpoint has just been created. The Via Adrina - it lies in the lower Eder valley, and leads around the loops of the Eder – it is above all a hiking route of "visual relationships". There are more than 100 hosts, from holiday apartments, to well loved and cosy guesthouse farms, to comfortable hotels, all of whom look forward to welcoming guests to Bad Berleburg.
