Cycle along disused railway lines. Tunnels and viaducts lead through valleys and over hills.

Relaxed cycling along old railway lines
Welcome to the tour with the most beautiful views. Along the Bergische Panorama-Radweg (Bergisch Panorama Cycle Trail), far-reaching views are part of the day’s programme. Embark on a journey through time. The cycle tour takes you through the cradle of industrial culture in the Bergisches Land.
The tour is more than 130 kilometres long and mainly runs along disused railway lines. Where once the steam engines clattered through the low mountain landscape, you can now enjoy a relaxing cycle along almost entirely gradient-free routes. Mostly far from road traffic. Tunnels, viaducts and bridges ensure ever-changing impressions.
Stop off at Schloss Burg. The top can be reached in comfort by cablecar. It even takes bicycles. Take a look at Müngsten Bridge. The cycle trail takes you under Germany’s highest railway bridge.
Keep on cycling: the Bergische Panorama-Radweg (Bergisch Panorama Cycle Trail) connects the Ruhr District, the Bergisches Land and the Sauerland. You can set out from anywhere. An orange logo shows you the way.
