11 Stages on the Cologne Trail

Hiking Collection by komoot

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!

    Was our first tour with Komoot - on familiar territory.
    Some nonsensical danglers could have been saved. My tip: Draw a map on a clearly laid-out scale and only join the danglers when it really seems worthwhile.
    Also suitable for city bikes.

    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

    If we had already walked from Merkenich by train to Merkenich and returned home to the S Bahn in Woringen we would do it again and again. 😊

    Cologne Eifelverein:
    "Because of the construction work on the A3 motorway to extend the lanes from 6 to 8 lanes, the motorway intersection is blocked for a long time in the course of stage 6. It has been further north at the height of the Bayer sports grounds a makeshift bridge built so that a It has already been marked. "
    The tour proposed here takes this diversion into account.
