Mit dem E-Bike unterwegs und vorbei an Burghäusern, Mühlen und durch das schöne Naafbachtal.
The starting point is Honrath train station in Lohmar. From there, you first go uphill in the direction of Honrath. After passing the district of Wickuhl, you come to Bauerngut Schiefelbusch. You then pass Dachskuhl until you come to the Gammersbach Mill and the impressive Burg Sülz manor house. After the municipality of Bach, the forested trail goes upward to the Altenrath heath and the so-called Panzerstraße back to Lohmar. On the right bank of the Aggerufer and along the Sülz via Euelen, you come back to an Agger cycle trail again in Donrath. The trail leads over a wooden bridge, flanked by the Agger at all times, through forest and field to the campsite in Peisel. Shortly before this, you turn off right in the direction of Kreuznaaf, which brings you to the idyllic Naafbachtal valley. After Ingersauel, the trail again leads up to the ridges and after Leyenhaus back down into the valley – so there’s no shortage of variety. From Overath the cycle trail runs along the B484 back in the direction of Lohmar Honrath Train Station.
Highlights along the route:
- Burg Honrath: The manor house dating from the 16th century stands on Romanesque cellar vaults that have been preserved to this day. It was originally built by the Count of Hückeswagen, who also owned the church near the manor house.
- Gammersbach Mill: Gammersbach Mill, in the Gammersbach valley between Muchensiefen and Oberschönrath, was first named in 1688 as a water-powered flour mill. At that time, it belonged to the noble house of Schönrath.
- Burg Sülz: The current Burg Sülz technology park is located in a “new building” begun in 1766, a noble castle complex. The former medieval Sülz moated castle bordered it to the east.
- Burg Lohmar: The manor house built by Dietrich von Blankenberg in the 14th century bordering the County of Berg was originally a fortified moated castle. 1717, the year the the three-winged outer bailey was built, is still visible on the arch of the door.
- Naafbachtal: Naafbachtal is one of the most beautiful valleys in our region. With its side valleys and hollows, between Kreuznaaf, Blindennaaf and the Heckberg forest, the source of the Kleine and Große Naaf, it covers an area of approx. 45 km².
