Rund um Wuppertal: Tour 13
Stefan went for a hike.
November 15, 2020
One of 13 tour sections around my hometown Wuppertal. The total length of the routes is approx. 104 km. With the kind permission of the Sauerland Mountain Association Dept. Wuppertal, taken from the book "Hiking in Wuppertal" (ISBN 978-3-00-064869-4).Note: I have transferred the tours to Komoot as best I can. When in doubt, always follow the Ⓦ sign (capital W in a circle). Have fun hiking!
Today was the last section of my tour around Wuppertal. Actually, this section begins at Zimmerplatz, but since I came from the north, I shortened a bit and walked parallel to the north of the Samba street on a beautiful forest path. In between you cross the Samba race and get onto the original circular route. From there it goes downhill for quite a while on quiet forest paths through the beautiful, tree species-rich Burgholz until you cross the Wupper at some point. From then on it goes steadily uphill, partly on paved paths, partly on narrow and steep paths. Towards the end it goes a bit through the popular local recreation area Schrödersbusch, and you reach the starting point at the old suspension railway car.This is the end of a great circular walk. Each section had its own characteristics, and I got completely new perspectives and insights into my hometown of Wuppertal.Thanks to everyone who takes the trouble to discover and signpost such paths.
