Hiking and walking in the Bergisches Land

Gentle, rolling hills, green meadows, beautiful mixed woodlands and remote valleys with rippling streams and reservoirs are typical of the Bergisches Land Nature Park. Small villages with idyllic alleyways, timber-framed and slate houses complete this picturesque image. A huge number of local and industrial history museums, castles, fortresses and churches bring the history and culture of the region to life. What could be more lovely than to explore this landscape on foot?  

Under the brand "Bergisches Wanderland”(Bergisch Hiking Country),the region offers two quality long-distance hiking trails and experience tours. On the "Bergischen Panoramasteig" (Bergisch Panorama Trail) and the "Bergisch Weg” (Bergisch Trail), you can enjoy the Bergisch landscape free of any cares and explore it in several daily stages on foot: the trails are marked continuously in both directions and are regularly inspected by trail supervisors. The same applies for the "Bergisch Streifzüge” (Bergisch Scout Trails), themed experience trails that beckon for half-day and full-day tours.  

In total however there are over 4,000 kilometres of signposted hiking trails in the Bergisch region along which the region can be explored and discovered very well on foot. From short hikes to full-day tours, there is something to suit every walker and hiker. Here, you can enjoy fantastic views and allow your spirit to run free, experience nature and discover so much at the same time.  

Along the trails, many culinary establishments await, offering refreshments. From small, typical Bergisch specialities to fresh cakes and waffles to award-winning cuisine, everything is on offer. An if your feet are sore in the evening, you can gather new strength at one of the wellness oases.
