My husband and I will be in the area early June - what are some good day trips from Winterberg? We will have a car, but are willing to travel by train. Interested in history, food, music, scenery.
I don't know the area west of Winterberg. East and south of it there are f.i. these destinations:
Edersee: A barrier lake east of Winterberg; one of the biggest barrier lakes in Germany, located in a beautiful forest area, with castle Waldeck upon the lake(cable car from lake to castle), cruise ships/ferries
Nationalpark Kellerwald: Beech forest national park south of the barrier lake
Fritzlar: small beautiful medieval town east of the lake, thus downstream, at the river Eder
Marburg (Lahn): medium sized medieval town south of Winterberg( and south of Frankenberg), with castle
Frankenberg (Eder): small town south of Winterberg, upstream of the lake, at the river Eder
A bit further away you could visit the castle park in Kassel (Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe) and combine it with either Fritzlar or Hannoversch-Münden (another nice old town similar to Fritzlar, but further northeast)
Thank you - a lot of information I had no idea about.
