Lüdenscheid Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 137 photos
Lüdenscheid is a modern economic and service centre, and at the same time it is the social and cultural heart of the Märkischer Kreis. Good infrastructure and its ideal setting in the magnificent Mittelgebirge landscape guarantee a wide range of opportunities to the 81,000 inhabitants as well as to visitors.
The historic and carefully-restored old part of the town, with its romantic facades and cosy pubs and restaurants, attracts visitors from near and far. The Schillerbad brewery and pub, built in a former town swimming pool, is a meeting place for young and old.
The beautiful landscape, the Neuenhof castle - surrounded by water - and, not least, the wide range of leisure time activities on offer, add to the attraction of Lüdenscheid. Numerous sports and leisure centres, the indoor and outdoor swimming pools at Nattenberg, the swimming pool with its sauna and fitness room in the heart of the town, tennis courts, indoor riding arena with showground and a golf course just outside the town offer plenty of opportunities for sporting activities.
The Versetalsperre reservoir lies south of the town. The traffic-free paths - of which there are also many on the outskirts of the town - provide plenty of opportunities for extended and refreshing walks. Ideal for filling your lungs with oxygen. The Fuelbecker, Fürwigge and Jubach dams as well as the area around the Homert lookout tower (539 metres above sea-level) and the nearby Ebbegebirge range of hills are delightful destinations for outings, both in summer and winter.

Many other buildings are also coloured with lights.
