The town of Schermbeck is part of the district of Wesel and lies in the North of the Ruhr Area in the middle of the "Hohe Mark" nature park with its extensive woodland areas. Hiking holidays and outdoors relaxation therefore play an important role during a short break in the region.
The nature reserves of Loosenberge, Lichtenhagen and Lippeaue are part of the Hohe Mark nature park and are popular excursion destinations for hikers. Yet it is not only the varied landscape but also the cultural historical aspect that makes Schermbeck unique. A good hotel industry and fine dining encourage you to visit and relax.
For a short trip by bike or with your hiking shoes, Schermbeck fulfils all the requirements for active leisure activities that are rich in variety: a signposted historical circular walk, hot-air balloon trips, canoe tours, golf courses, riding, fishing and much more are all possible in Schermbeck.
The NiederRheinRoute (Lower Rhine Route) which is well-known far beyond the borders, the culture route along the Rivers Lippe and Ijssel and the Römer-Lippe-Route (Roman-Lippe-Route) all meet in the area of Schermbeck.
