Der Bergische Weg führt auf den Spuren eines über 100 Jahre alten Wanderweges vom Ruhrgebiet über 13 Etappen und 260 km bis nach Königswinter am Rhein. In dieser Collection stellen wir die ersten 7 Etappen vor. Es geht von Essen hinein ins Bergische Land mit seiner typisch Landschaft aus Wäldern, Wiesen und Hügel. Dabei schmiegt sich der Weg immer wieder an Flüsse an, durchquert Naturschutzgebiet und bietet die ein oder andere Erhebung. Zu entdecken gibt es etliche Talsperren, historische Dörfer, Schlösser, Burgen und Denkmäler.
