Möhnesee is a town where the whole family can come relax and soak up all the natural scenery you can. The natural beauty of the Arnsberg Forest and the Möhnetalsperre (Möhne Reservoir) see thousands of visitors every year; you should be one of them.
Don’t come to Möhnesee if you’re looking for historic haunted castles or dark medieval churches. That isn’t what you’ll find here in the town’s fifteen municipalities. Actually, most of them are just quiet farm and residential villages.
But, just to set the record straight, the cute Drüggelter Chapel (and all her beautiful artwork) was built in the 12th century and the St. Pankratius Parish Church is over 300 years old. The interior is so ornately decorated that many people come to see it and it really is one of Möhnesee’s attractions.
If you can help it, though, don’t spend any more time inside than necessary. Grab the family and head over to the Sea Promenade with a playground for the little ones, miniature golf, and boat rentals. The sandy beach of the lake is family friendly with all sorts of activities for the youngsters.
If you prefer the forest to the “sea” then the Arnsberg Forest is what you need. There are plenty of walking and cycling trails, as well as camping facilities.
For those who prefer not to “rough it,” the Hotel Haus Delecke is one of the most deluxe hotels in town. Looking more like an old manor house than a large “chain” hotel, come play a round of golf, try your hand at squash, or sit in the garden with a good book. The hotel’s gourmet restaurant serves traditional rustic German cuisine in a fine-dining atmosphere.
There are other Möhnesee accommodations for various price ranges, though.
With all the “beach” side activities and the calm of the forest, who wouldn’t want to spend a few nights here?
