Maps and trails
Geographically, Friesenhagen is located in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, about 70 kilometres east of Cologne. The region is characterised by its hilly landscape, which is criss-crossed by forests and rivers. Autumn and spring are particularly beautiful here - when the leaves on the trees change colour or everything starts to blossom again.

One of the main tourist attractions in Friesenhagen is undoubtedly Hachenburg Castle. This baroque building was built in the 17th century and today houses a museum as well as various cultural events such as concerts or theatre performances.

If you are interested in history, you should also take a detour to Greifenstein Castle - a medieval fortress overlooking the valley of the Sieg.

Besides these historical sights, however, there are many other activities in Friesenhagen: hiking or cycling along the numerous hiking trails (such as the Rothaarsteig), canoeing on the River Sieg or simply relaxing while fishing at Lake Biggesee - everyone will find something to their liking here!

But what do you actually do in Friesenhagen when the weather is bad? Don't worry! There are plenty of ways to pass the time here too. For example, visit the Panoramabad leisure pool in Wissen or take a trip to nearby Bonn with its many museums and cultural offerings.

And when it comes to enjoying culinary delights, Friesenhagen is also a good place to do so. Try regional specialities such as the "Hachenburger Löwenbräu" - a beer from the local brewery - or visit one of the cosy cafés in the village centre.

In conclusion, if you are looking for peace and quiet and want to combine nature and cultural interests, Friesenhagen is definitely worth a visit. As a travel guide, we definitely recommend a stay in this idyllic region!
