A primary destination for outdoors enthusiasts in the north of Hesse, Willingen features incredible opportunities for skiing, biking, hiking, and so much more. Internationally renowned for a number of annual competitions and events, and bustling with an excellent hospitality infrastructure, this small town draws in well over a million overnight visitors each year–from mainland Europe and parts far beyond. But don’t be intimidated by the crowds and action–if something quieter is more to your taste, Willingen’s got you covered with museums, traditional breweries, glass blowing workshops, and wildlife tours of the forested countryside. Whatever your holiday passion, you’re sure to find it here.

Location: A Small Retreat in the German Upland

Willingen is situated in river valleys on the northern edge of the German state of Hesse. Access is provided via roadways and the Uplandbahn railway line. The small, yet international, Paderborn/Lippstadt Airport (PAD) is Willingen’s closest–airports are also located in the larger cities of Hannover and Cologne, each around 200 km from the community.

Culture: An Activity-Centric Lifestyle

This town is a holiday destination at heart, jam-packed with facilities and activities for winter and summer alike. Every year, Willingen hosts the Ski Jumping World Cup on the Mühlenkopfschanze hill–a venue that seats 100,000. Also held here is the BIKE Festival Willingen, with mountain biking marathons, downhill racing, and an exhibition area. The great railway bridge “Das Viadukt” is perhaps the town’s most distinctive landmark.

Activities: Sports and Games Year-Round

If your time in Willingen doesn’t overlap with the massive festivals and events, never fear–there’s plenty to do at your own pace. Try a laid-back day of golfing or a cable-car ride up into the mountains in summer, or ice-skating and spas in winter. Thrills heat up the town any time of year–summer brings rock climbing, hiking, and go karting, while winter visitors can take advantage of the 20 ski lifts, numerous ski jumps, 80 km of cross-country ski trails, and toboggan slopes.
