HikingThe ideal hiking destination

Come and visit us at the Ruhrquellenhütte and discover the hiking paradise Sauerland!

The Rothaarsteig goes directly past the nearby Ruhrquelle and you can explore the Sauerland and its nature on numerous beautiful hiking trails. If you are hungry or thirsty for a cool drink and a coffee, we are here for you.

Enjoy the good weather on our sun terrace and take a well-deserved break before continuing on.

Family hike to the Ruhr spring

On the 5.4 km long audio path "Mountain meadows and springs" you will discover the colourful and species-rich mountain meadows of the Hochsauerland as a family. From the Ruhrquellenhütte you hike in the direction of the Ruhrquelle and along the way you will learn a lot of interesting facts about flora, fauna and the once hard life on the Winterberg plateau at 10 stations. Simply scan the QR code at the stations and off you go.

Close to the source of the Ruhr is the pile village, in whose little house a lot of exciting information on the topic of "forest as an economic area" awaits you. Meanwhile, the children can balance over beams and explore the suspension bridges that connect the cottages. From there, we return to the Ruhrquellehütte - how about a delicious waffle or a round of mountaincarting there?
