Baldeneysee, we want to go there again this year 🙂
As the Neanderlandsteig was drawing to a close, I was looking for a new challenge. And there it is now the Bergische Weg, which I am really excited about. It basically starts on my doorstep.It all started in Essen on the parking lot of secret love (restaurant with a beautiful view). Following the paths and not playing mini golf, you can then pay a visit to the Jagdhaus Schellenberg, the beer garden is great.In between there are beautiful paths, today quite crowded, which lead down to the Baldeneysee. It shouldn't be wet, otherwise it could get slippery. The Heisingen bird sanctuary also has some cute turtles to offer. On the old railway bridge you go over to the other side of the lake and if you're lucky you can still admire the old railway. If you don't want to visit Lucas train station, I recommend taking the path by the lake and not walking around it as specified.
Nice views of the lake follow. Then it goes into the forest, leaving the hustle and bustle behind. Fields, a deer and lots of green follow.
Great first stage, only the end in the middle of nowhere is irritating. I finally found a bus stop and 3 buses later and about 15 minutes walk I was back at the car!
Oh yes, the Isenburg is worth a detour😉
"Salad" sometimes alone sometimes with others😉Welcome to Komoot!
"Christian" the pictures are coming soon😉
"Martin C", I can definitely recommend the lake to you! You should see Kettwig and Werden right away!
Have fun on the Bergisches Weg! I'm just missing the last two stages. I'm curious which ones you particularly like 😊
Thank you Anke 😊I hope you enjoyed it overall? Coming back today was just a little difficult. Will it stay that way?
