Cologne is an extraordinarily diverse city. Contrary to common beliefs, even nature is thriving in and around Cologne. This 171 kilometers long multi day hike "Cologne Trail" takes you around the city in one big loop, touching the city's green outskirts. The path is well marked and guides hikers through idyllic parks, thick forests as well as lush meadows and fields. The lake region in the North, the King's Forest including the heathland Wahner Heide in the East and the Rheinauen, a floodplain area in the South, are just a few examples of the many highlights you will encounter on your way. Each leg of the trail can be reached by public transport, allowing you to split your excursion up into several trips. It's a mini-holiday in your own city!

very nice tour.The only nuisance, in the app for the journey no public transport found, although the KVB only 100 meters from the starting point holds, as Cologne no problem. It would be very good if the stops were planned using nearby stops. By the way, also for the other sections :-(. Otherwise I am very satisfied with the track, the maps and the app
