The artificially created Biggesee is one of the most important water sports centres in the Sauerland. We hike to the Gleiberg bird and nature reserve on the shore and to the Waldenburg ruins.

The Biggesee is the largest reservoir in North Rhine-Westphalia. However, its scenic location attracts – many sports enthusiasts and tourists, especially in the summer months. There are numerous leisure activities around the lake and in the towns of Attendorn and Olpe. The beautiful nature around the Biggesee offers a hiking paradise for young and old. Those who prefer to explore the area from the water have the opportunity to do so on the boats of the Biggesee passenger shipping company.
