Since 2013 the Sauerland Höhenflug has been a certified "wanderbares Deutschland" (hikeable Germany) long-distance hiking trail. It is approx. 200 km long, rich in variety and offers unmatched, splendid views and natural experience at first hand from the best perspective - all the way up. The trail between the starting point Altena and Korbach in Hessen runs at an altitude that varies between 400 and 800 meters.Those, who walk the entire trail, will have dealt with four eight hundred metre high mountains, effortlessly. Another option is a hiking tour from Alterna to Herner or Neuenrade and the bus back. We can guarantee one thing: only flying is more fun!
Even during hiking the people from Altena still have wire on their mind. The route of the wire drawers can be walked on the historic thematic road. From Altena you can head south towards Lüdenscheid or north to Iserlohn or walk the entire 32 km into one direction. And if that shouldn't be enough, there is the quality hiking route "Sauerland forest route" (Sauerland Waldroute), from Iserlohn. A few Geocaches have been hidden along the way.
