Bike Touring Highlight
Since mid-September 2019, this is no longer the beginning (or the end) of the Balkantrasse, because the missing 800m to the Opladener Bahnhof have been completed and released. Today I drove there for the first time. Become very beautiful.

Actually, I just wanted to ride on a bike path, but with the starting point you're in the middle of a clash of the club that receives the track and politics. There is probably a jolt to further expansion:

in Opladen is an ideal gateway to the Balkan route. With gentle gradients, you can move comfortably through nature. Again and again there are rest areas, in Remscheid also a beautiful old train station with recommended location, food and drink. A beer garden attracts in good weather and e-bike charging station is also available.

Burscheid railway station on the Balkan route: The excellent restaurant is located directly on the railway line and offers its guests a varied menu and various drinks. Freshly tapped monastery beer 'Weltenburger Kloster' is recommended.
Here you will also find a nice beer garden, a bike service station and e-bike charging station.

The Bahnstadt Opladen is still being built, so it is not (yet?) the optical highlight of the route, but the beginning/end in the current Opladen district of the city of Leverkusen, which is already very industrial. The Bahnradweg begins directly at the station, which is equipped with bicycle-friendly ramps.Tip for long route planning: einsgl-bergisch-radeln.de/bergischer-panorama-radweg-2 In Bergisch Born, do not continue to the end point of Lennep, but turn sharp right in the direction of Hückeswagen, Wipperfürth, Marienheide. This is also an old railway line on which the Bergisches Panoramaradweg runs. It continues to Olpe. From there it goes even further to the heart of the Sauerland.
