Morning calmness lingers over meadows and forests. You swing your hiking rucksack onto your back, step onto the soft ground and take a deep breath. Soon, you feel calm and rested. Untold joys await you in the beautiful nature of Germany’s Bergisches Land.

These hikes are perfect if you like to go for a walk and then treat yourself to delicious meals with a clear conscience. You can also stop off for plenty of cool drinks and fragrant coffees along the way. We’ve put together a Collection of Tours that start at great restaurants and cafes. All of the routes are circular so you can stop in after your hike and enjoy a well-deserved treat. The region has wonderful cuisine. Take a look at the menu before you start your hike and you’ll see what you have to look forward to.

Our Tours mostly follow waymarked hiking trails, but not all of them are marked with our logo. We recommend you take a look at the route description and bring a map, GPS device or smartphone for orientation so you can easily follow komoot’s navigation. In summer, our hiking tips will also be available in a booklet.

By the way, some of the hikes take you past farm shops, milk filling stations and even egg vending machines, so you can take some delicious regional products from the Bergisches Land home with you. Regional shopping at its best!
