River Eder Cycle Path

The en­tire length of the Eder from the source in the Rothaarge­birge

With no ma­jor as­cents, the River Eder Cycle Path is ideal for fam­il­ies and leis­ure cyc­lists.

Three rivers have their source in a unique section of the Rothaargebirge Nature Park: the Eder, Lahn and Sieg. Leisure cyclists can follow the entire length of the Eder from here on the Ederauen-Radweg (River Eder Cycle Path), which runs for over 180 kilometres from Ederkopf through Bad Berleburg and the Kurhessisches Bergland before reaching the point where the Eder flows into the Fulda. Thanks to its moderate slopes, the River Eder Floodplains Cycle Path is extremely family-friendly.

One of the many highlights on the way is Bad Berleburg with its castle and castle museum. A short distance further on is the Schieferschaubergwerk Raumland (Raumland Show Mine), which explains the centuries-old history of slate mining in the Siegerland-Wittgenstein region. The route also passes the Edersee, Germany’s second largest reservoir. Along the way, a range of options will tempt cyclists to take a quick break, including a tree top walk. Another worthwhile stop-off is the pretty town of Fritzlar with its half-timbered houses.

During the annual Eder Bike Tour, cyclists and skaters can enjoy traffic-free roads, cycle paths and agricultural roads. The event programme also includes concerts and the chance to try culinary specialities.
