The Waldeck Holiday Region (Waldecker Land) is the first section of what is known as the Fairy Tale Road. The area, however, offers alternatives to Fairy tale references. Hike or bike the two nature parks in the region: the Weserergland and the Lünenburg Heath. The latter is particularly flat and provides easy biking. Try to remain for more than a weekend. The Waldeck Holiday Region can introduce you to long strolls in the wooded hills or water sports on the lakes and rivers. The Waldeck Holiday Region then becomes more financially accessible.
While in the Waldeck Holiday Region visit the Gothic church of Kilian with its 14th century pulpit in Kosbach. You might also want to go to Bad Wildunger and try its spa springs. The church there has scenes of the Passion painted by Konrad von Soest on its altar. In Frankenberg, you can remark over the comedic polychrome woodcarvings on the early 16th century Town Hall.
