Idyllic river meadows, bright blue lakes with sandy beaches and the mighty River Rhine – Leverkusen is a wonderful place to explore on foot. The city is full of green oases of nature that are just perfect for hiking, whilst the foothills of the Bergisches Land offer even more routes right on your doorstep. If you’ve ever walked along the rippling Wupper River, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, or dreamily watched boats go by on the banks of the Rhine in Hitdorf, you’ll know exactly what we mean. Leverkusen is the green gateway to the Bergisch region on its doorstep.

We, the ‘Lust auf Leverkusen’ team, know the best walks in the city and beautiful hiking Tours in the Bergisch region. There’s something for everyone in this Collection. No matter if you only have a few hours or a whole day; the varied low mountain landscapes offer pure relaxation.

In Leverkusen, we love our little getaways in the Bergisch hills and valleys. Reservoirs, rivers and lakes cast blue shades between the scenic hills. Idyllic little villages with half-timbered and slate houses are perfect places to stop and spend the night. Sounds like a great holiday right? Come to Leverkusen and spend some time surrounded by nature and culture. You can also visit Cologne or Düsseldorf for a relaxing day in the low mountain landscape.

‘Lust auf Leverkusen’ shows you how livable and lovable the city of Leverkusen is. There's really no reason to stray into the metropolises around the corner. Lace up your hiking shoes and let's go to Leverkusen.
