bergisch4 went for a bike ride.
January 1, 2010
From the hiking car park at the Aueler Hof, we first cross the Wahlscheider Straße in the east and follow the Steinweg. Some branches later it goes, following the signs, from Wahlscheid through the forest on the way to Neuhonrath. There we cross the Agger, past the Naafshäuschen with its beer garden, to the Honrather station (which is well suited for train travelers as a starting point of the tour *).Continue uphill, along the steeper road (maybe we have to push a short distance, about 400 meters). On the left hand side we see the Protestant church and castle Honrath. The origins of the castle go back to the 12th century - of which, however, only the basement vaults are preserved. The remainder of the castle and the Romanesque church tower date back to the 16th century. Incidentally, the church is a little acoustic marvel, which is often used for CD or radio recordings. Several times a year, classical concerts are listed here that are worth visiting.Continue uphill for a while along "Rösrather Straße" (about 100 meters), then turn right into "Honrather Straße", which continues almost at the top with "Hoffnungsthaler Straße". This road, which has not finally been completed, ends at "Schlehecker Straße" (L84). Here we drive 50 m left and then right again direction Wickuhl. Now we are finally up. Between Schlehecken and Wickuhl we are rewarded by a beautiful view over the Rhine valley to the Eifel. Continue downhill. After Wickuhl we meet the Kreisstraße 49 towards Rösrath. We cross this road by driving 50 m to the right, then to the left towards Dachskuhl. Past the farm girl "Schiefelbusch" with its new cafe and all sorts of farm animals, only then, then strong downhill, it goes in sharp turns to the bottom. Here we turn right behind the fishponds into the Gammersbacher valley. We drive through the forest, shady and cool on bumpy road, cross the county road K39 and reach the Gammersbacher mill with functioning mill wheel and rest stops. The following way is only passable after longer drought! Otherwise: take a run and through! When we arrived at the "Hippenalm" we made it.Following the signs through the industrial area greets next the castle Sülz, a former farm and one of the oldest documented places of settlement Lohmars (Wasserburg 11th century), which is now used as a business park. If you are interested in antiques or Italian food, should make a trip to the courtyard. Otherwise we cross the Sülztalstraße (L 288) and it continues on the well-developed cycle path along the Sülz (much traffic!) To Heppenberg. At the end of the Aggerbrücke we turn right, under the road and follow the Agger into Donrath. We turn left into the Dornheckenweg, just before a sharp right turn we turn left into the forest. After a wooden bridge over the Agger we drive to the right through a high forest towards Reelsiefen. At the end of the road we cross the road to the right and turn left into the access road to the campsite. Through woods and meadows you will pass the Hitzhof and Brückerhof to the beautiful Aggerschlösschen, which invites you to stop by its idyllic beer garden under old trees.We drive on a wooden bridge over the Agger and turn left into the landscape garden "Aggerbogen". Here you will find various information boards and z.T. Visual objects on insects, bees, the Benjeshecke and the ecosystem. After we have crossed the B484 on safe way, we reach again our Ausgagspunkt at the Aueler yard.* Note: For train travelers, the Honrather station is also an alternative starting and finishing point of the route ("Start2").Stations: Wahlscheid, Neuhonrath, Honsbach, Agger, Honrath station, Wickuhl, Gammersbacher mill, Sülz Castle, Donrath, Höngesberg.
