This family-friendly former railway line runs from the Hanseatic town of Korbach to Buhlen am Edersee or the other way around.
The Hanseatic city of Korbach, the city of Waldeck and the municipality of Edertal invite you to a tour on one of the most spectacular cycle paths in Hesse. Discover the Waldecker Land on the former route of the Ederseebahn, which once connected the Ruhr area and Amsterdam with the spa town of Bad Wildungen. The completely asphalted path leads over a length of around 27 kilometers from the Hanseatic town of Korbach to Buhlen am Edersee, passing cool tunnels, deep cuts, old train stations, high-piled old railway embankments and bridges with wonderful views, such as the “Selbach Viaduct”.
The average gradient of the entire route is just 2%. Fantastic conditions not only for families with children. In addition to the two end points of the path, there are other entrances, for example in the area of the neighboring towns or at the signposted parking spaces. Round off your trip with a visit to the historic old town of Korbach with its attractive pedestrian zone or a detour to one of the picturesque towns along the route. Anyone who has mastered the entire route can refresh themselves with a cool swim in the Edersee!
