The Sauerland is a hiker's paradise. There is an excellent network of hiking trails around the campsite. We will be happy to advise you on scenic hiking trails. Many of them lead directly past Kalberschnacke. One highlight is certainly the KuLTour hiking trail, a LandArt circular hiking trail that starts below the campsite, at the Kalberschnacke hiking car park.

Art and landscape

The KuLTour is a special hiking trail. The "K" stands for art, the "L" for landscape. Hikers will find art in the landscape on an exciting circular route of approx. 7 kilometres. Here, nature can be rediscovered again and again...

Jogging, Nordic walking & skating

For skaters, we recommend parts of the Lister-Bigge circular route, which starts directly below the campsite (total length 27.2 km). The route is suitable for beginners up to the barrier wall of the Listersee (approx. 4 km easy), but due to a few metres in altitude, skating skills are required from this point onwards.

This route is also suitable for jogging. Nordic walkers can also be found on the edge path.

Those who prefer jogging or walking on tar-free surfaces will find a large selection of suitable routes around the campsite.
