The botanical garden is a real highlight.
If you are even a little interested in plants
(And if it's just the starter salad :-) should definitely stop by.
There are plants from all over the world in 2 greenhouses, the plant dome and on the park-like terrain.
Admission is free.
you can inform yourself about guides.

Time drove the parallel route through the Urdenbacher Kämpe. Significantly more pleasant to drive from the surface!
However, returning to the original path - planned by Komoot - is an impertinence. See Figure 10. Bicycle must be carried uphill over tree trunks and arms / legs burned by stinging nettles.
Better before over the bridge (picture 9) back to the original way.

Difficult route: you will have to carry your bike! ;-)
Background to this route:
The route between Cologne and Dormagen leads only via the B9, because the Bayer plant is "in the way".
Now I found an unfortunately undocumented route, where a commuter "drove" through the factory.
Only after much persuasion Komoot let me tinker this route. Now I know why!
Parallel to the train tracks you have to cross it once. This is only possible over a bridge!
See cover picture.
So carry the bike (over 20kg with pockets) up and down on the other side.
For road cyclists with their 10kg racers maybe an option, for me as a commuter rather not, although the way is very well maintained and also more beautiful than it comes in the photos' over.
