Barrier-free hiking routes

Hiking trails for pushchairs and wheelchair users

The Bergisches Land does not get its name from its "Bergen” (mountains), but rather from the Count of Berg. But anyone who hikes here will realise that it really can be quite hilly. Even though the ascent is usually rewarded with fantastic views, not everyone wants to or can handle this altitude. And the most popular paths with many hikers present a challenge or even an insurmountable hurdle for some.  

Therefore, we have put compiled a list of hiking trails that can definitely be completed with a pushchair or in a wheelchair here. They run mainly on firm forest or agricultural roads or on asphalt.
