Walking highlights

Walking in the Bergisch countryside is an amazing experience. There’s water everywhere, streams rushing down the hills and hiking trails winding through dense areas of woodland. Trails and paths are simultaneously places of discovery where you can come across relics of early industrialisation.

Adventure trails along the Wupper, Morsbach and Eschbach

The three traditional waterways in the region are the Wupper, the Morsbach and the Eschbach. Nowadays they all contain interlinked hiking trails highlighting themes from the early years of the industrial revolution.
Texts and maps on information pillars at the start of your tour and along the way will help you get your bearings and give you an overview of all the stopping points along the way. Yellow markings will lead you to a trail. Blue signs on buildings, locations and pillars will point you to hidden treasures and historical places and tell you more about the people, their machines, buildings and other remarkable features in the countryside.

The whole hog or bit by bit

Three valleys, three lakes, three towns. All these tours invite you to discover the Bergisch three on foot. If you find any of them too long to cover in a single day, or if you need more time and breaks to experience them to the full, you can always visit them bit by bit.
