    Boundless hiking pleasure and mountain attractions

    The Bergische Weg is a speciality. On it, you not only follow the tracks of a hundred-year-old hiking trail. As a long-distance hiking trail, it also offers you boundless hiking pleasure. From Lake Baldeney in Essen to the Siebengebirge in the Rhineland, it runs for almost 260 kilometers through the heart of the Bergisches Land region. Scenic and cultural "jewels" lie along your route.

    Wonderful natural experiences and interesting cultural history

    Three hiking stages of the quality hiking trail run through the Bergisches Städtedreieck and show you the gems around the trio of cities. These include the enchanting old town of Solingen Gräfrath, the Burgholz State Forest with its collection of trees from various countries that is unique in Germany, and the "industrious" Morsbach. Listen to its roar on your hike, and be sure to plan a visit to one of the numerous museums on your route. There, the history of the mountains comes to life.

    How about a box seat for gigantic views? Where the Morsbach flows into the Wupper, the filigree steel structure of the Müngsten Bridge hovers more than a hundred meters above you. Another highlight is Burg Castle. From the former ancestral seat of the Counts of Berg, who gave their name to the region, you can enjoy a wonderful view into the distance.
