The natural location of the town of Kierspe between Oberbergisches Land and Sauerland offers a wide range of recreational and leisure opportunities. With its varied landscapes, surrounded by numerous dams and the Sauerland-Rothaargebirge Nature Park, Kierspe is considered an attractive local recreation area. Attractive circular hiking trails, a golf course and many other recreational opportunities round out the wide range of offerings.
What you should not miss is the Bakelitmuseum next to the Schleiper Hammer. The Schleiper Hammer is a hammer mill and dates back to the middle of the 19th century. The outside facilities with the two operating ponds and the shape of the building have been preserved in their original form until today. The former hammer mill has been restored since 1989 in the condition of the 1930s with turbine drive, transmission and spring hammer. The upper part of the hammer mill documents the development of the Bakelite industry. Bakelite as the first plastic material triggered a revolution in the production of technical articles. In the first German Bakelitmuseum, which is housed in the former Kiersper Amtshaus, a diverse collection of everyday objects made of this plastic is on display.
Other sights that should not be missed during a visit to Kierspe are the Jubachtalsperre, the Historical Distillery, the Wienhagen Tower, the Thingslinde and the museum around the Kiersper poet Fritz Linde.
