Best Season

Enchanting favorite places, idyllic low mountain range landscapes, views that touch the heart and a characteristic that couldn't be more different: "Welcome to the Eder Cycle Path"

The quality cycle route, awarded 4 stars by the ADFC, accompanies the Eder on its journey through beautiful landscapes in North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse.

The 166 km long Eder Cycle Path runs from Erndtebrück through the Waldecker Land past the mouth of the Eder and on to Baunatal-Guntershausen on quiet cycle paths and farm roads.

The route runs through a varied low mountain range landscape.

After starting in Erndtebrück, the route first goes through the Rothaargebirge nature park and continues across the NRW/Hesse border through the Waldecker Land and the Schwalm-Eder district. If you would like to visit the Eder source, you can follow the signs for the feeder (green E).

The Eder cycle path takes you to old half-timbered towns, through beautiful beech and spruce forests, past mountain streams and quiet ponds.

The highlight is the Edersee with the adjacent Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Natural soil and asphalt alternate.
