Cycling in Siegen-Wittgenstein

Fahrrad fahren an der Siegquelle
You’ll be surprised how few ascents there are along many routes through our beautiful, varied low mountain range landscape in the Sauerland Rothaargebirge nature park. The Lahn valley cycle trail, for example, gradually takes you downhill from the source of the river, often along asphalt paths, through the river landscape. On the Eder cycle trail, you follow the river and, as well as the water meadows, you can enjoy the beech- and the pinewoods that frame them.
Even if you really exert yourself, there’s always a shady spot to take a rest - after all, this is the region of Germany with the largest amount of forest. Refresh your tired legs and feet in the Eder, Lahn, Sieg and the many clear streams that flow here in this area rich with springs. As varied as the routes are, you’ll nearly always have a view onto dense greenery, and often with the sound of babbling water in the background. 

Our junction system helps you get your bearings and allows you to combine different routes to create your own individual tour. You can switch to the train almost everywhere, and bikes can be taken with you free of charge.

Our certified Bed & Bike hosts will supply you with cycling maps, timetables and a cosy place to spend the night.

Tip: The MTB Siegerland e. V. association shows mountain bike fans tricks and techniques. A loamy highlight: The FlowTrail Siegen takes you through the forest over humps and jump hills.
