    A walk through the heath is worthwhile in every season

    100 years ago, extensive heathland shaped the landscape between Hilden, Solingen and Langenfeld. They developed after dense deciduous forests were cut down around 300 years ago. Shepherds drove their flocks to graze on the meager areas, farmers used the heather plants as litter. When sheep farming was no longer worthwhile, many heather areas were drained and reforested. Settlements arose in other areas.But even today there are beautiful - and moor areas - like in the Ohligser Heide in the west of Solingen. Rare plant and animal species find a valuable habitat here. And for some years now, moorland snakes have been used again to maintain the nature-protected heathland. The breed of sheep, which is threatened with extinction, has a future perspective here: the animals professionally maintain a sensitive landscape.Today beautiful flat hiking trails lead through the Ohligser Heide. The Engelsberger Hof park is a popular destination for outings with children. There is a huge playground, play and sunbathing areas and the opportunity to grill. The Heide outdoor pool offers summer bathing fun in the middle of nature.The Solingen leisure map, which is available in local bookshops, offers directions for two tours through the heath

    Worth a visit if you've never been there, otherwise you know the place. Great views, nice and hidden places all around with some benches here and there.Perfect for a walk with the family, take a run, hike or bike some rounds and find all the ways 😊Sometimes when the wind comes from the west, the motorway can be quite noisy 🤬
