A little thrill?
Relaxation is good, but before that it should be action-packed? Visit the karting and bowling centre to put your racing skills to the test. The steep walls in the climbing hall also provide thrills. With archery you can prove your concentration and accuracy. All year round the Willingen skating rink is waiting for passionate skaters. Also a challenging pleasure: a round of curling or ice hockey against other guests or fellow travellers. In addition, the Lagunen-Erlebnisbad with several saunas, whirlpools, therapy pools and slide park attracts visitors.
Entertaining and educational
If you are in the mood for quiet or educational entertainment, try your hand at creating your own glass work of art under expert guidance at the Willingen glass factory or get to know the Willingen brewery during a brewery tour. How slate was mined and processed just a few decades ago can be seen on a guided tour of the Christine mine. The Milchmuhmuseum displays interesting exhibits about milk, in the Curioseum you will discover bizarre and curious exhibits on two floors. In case of bad weather, the Willingen cinema awaits your visit with current blockbusters.
