Your professional real estate agent in Olpe
Olpe is a district town in Sauerland, which has one of the largest and most beautiful reservoirs in North Rhine Westphalia, known as the Biggesee lake. The wealth of forestland, ores and water had an influence on the economic development of the region from an early stage. Still today many metal foundries, pipe drawing plants, die forges as well as fitting and machinery factories exist in the area. Furthermore, there are numerous companies and organisations in the trade and service sector. An additional important commercial industry is tourism. This is the result of the high standard of living, guaranteed in part by the local nature conservation status of Gilberginsel - the island in Biggesee - as well as the neighbouring shores, which draw many visitors. Numerous cycle routes and footpaths provide an inviting means to discover the area around Olpe. Water sports enthusiasts can also sail, surf, row, fish and dive here. With Siegerland to the south east and Bergische Land to the west, the region is a true holiday and relaxation destination. A diverse culture programme completes the broad range of attractions on offer.
