Edersee

In the middle of the beautiful low range mountain landscape of the Nature- and National Park Kellerwald-Edersee, lies the Discovery Region Edersee, a Mecca for leisure and holiday activities.

Numerous attractions from the water inlet to the dam walls provide days of fun and action on one of the most beautiful reservoirs in Germany. With around 750,000 overnight stays and several hundred thousand day-trippers every year, the holiday region of Edersee is one of the major holiday destinations in Hesse.

Sitting in splendour high above the lake in front of the wooded backdrop of the Nature and National Park Kellerwald-Edersee, is the symbol of the Edersee holiday region, the defiant Waldeck Castle. The Waldeck cable car soars from the lake up to the mountain castle in a few minutes.

The mighty dam wall blocks off the Edertal near Hemfurth, creating a 27 km long seascape. The best way to discover the magical charms of the Edersee is on one of the modern passenger ships or cycling along the new and family-friendly bike paths.
The water in the Edersee is of an excellent quality and provides a host of opportunities for water sport fans, offering everything that it is possible to do on an inland lake. Stroll along the inviting beaches and lakeside promenades or have fun in the sand and water. The kids are guaranteed to have amusement and fun in the World of Senses with a climbing course and water park as well as a summer toboggan run.

The Henkel-Erlebnisbad (water park) in Vöhl delights with its watery fun and provides plenty of opportunity to relax in the spacious sauna area.

The Urwaldsteig Edersee and Kellerwaldsteig lead you into the untamed nature of the holiday region. The Urwaldsteig Edersee is one of the most attractive hiking paths north of the Alps. Trained rangers and scouts point out the fauna, flora and the beauty of the natural heritage Kellerwald - far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

In the natural surroundings of the 85-hectare wildlife park Edersee, there are many animals to be discovered. The birds of prey show is a particular attraction. A funicular railway on the Peterskopf takes you from the e.on hydropower information centre directly into the National Park Kellerwald-Edersee. Once there, you will find spectacular views across the northern national park region.

With top-notch restaurants and hotels, the Edersee Touristic GmbH welcomes the opportunity to greet you, your family and friends. We are happy to help you plan your trip but we also have four Tourist Information Offices around the lake whose friendly Edersee Touristic GmbH staff would be glad to answer any questions you may have once you have arrived.
