      Am Bahnhof können wir uns zunĂ€chst auf einer Infotafel ĂŒber den Ort und das Wasserschloss von Lembeck informieren. Wir ĂŒberqueren erst die Bahngleise, dann die Straße und gehen mit dem „X“ auf einem Grasweg parallel zur Bahnstrecke. Über ein Feld wandern wir zu den Bauernhöfen am Midlicher Bach. Dort queren wir noch einmal die Landstraße und gehen rechts-links versetzt auf den asphaltierten Forstweg. Nach einer Weile können wir im Wald am linken Wegrand eine sehr schöne Parade aller BĂ€ume des Jahres seit 1989 bestaunen. Übrigens: Zum Baum des Jahres 2018 wurde die Esskastanie ausgerufen. Sanft geht es bergan, immerhin mĂŒssen wir ja auch hinauf auf die Hohe Mark. Wir erreichen den Feuerwachturm Galgenberg, die Plattform ist 36 Meter hoch. Nun ja, wer keine Höhenangst hat, kann dort hochsteigen, aber wer nicht Feuerwehrmann ist, muss auch nicht.Wir wandern weiter geradeaus, auch am Wegkreuz. Weiter geht es durch herrliche WĂ€lder, bis wir eine Straße ĂŒberqueren und rechts-links versetzt in den Wald hinein gehen. Wir folgen dem X und erreichen
      nach 7,5 Kilometern die Hexenbuchen. Aber auch die „normalen“ Buchen am Wegrand sind sehr spektakulĂ€r: hoch gewachsen, ausgewaschene Wurzeln, teilweise mit zwei, drei StĂ€mmen.
      Noch höher als die Buchen ist allerdings der Fernsehturm, den wir kurz darauf sehen. Wir befinden uns jetzt quasi im Mittelpunkt des Naturparks Hohe Mark WestmĂŒnsterland. Nach einer SchutzhĂŒtte erleben wir den abenteuerlichsten Teil der Tour mit schmalen, geheimnisvollen Pfaden, Hohlwegen und einigen Schluchten.Hinter LĂŒnzum gehen wir zunĂ€chst auf einem asphaltierten Feldweg, spĂ€ter durch den Wald. Unser Weg mĂŒndet auf einer wenig befahrenen Landstraße, die wir eine Weile (durch das Dorf Hennewig) entlang gehen
      mĂŒssen. Wir ĂŒberqueren die A 43 und biegen am Ende der BrĂŒcke scharf links auf einen Grasweg ab. Wir gehen 150 Meter entlang der Autobahn und mĂŒssen dann höllisch aufpassen, denn rechts biegt ein schmaler Pfad ab. Dort ist zwar an drei BĂ€umen X2 markiert, aber man ĂŒbersieht es sehr leicht. Wir wandern an der etwas gruseligen Ruine der GaststĂ€tte Helenenhöhe vorbei und biegen rechts an einer Mauer ab. Wir ĂŒberqueren die Landstraße und gehen an der KolpinghĂŒtte vorbei. Der folgende Streckenabschnitt ist nicht sehr schön, aber nach einer Allee haben wir schon fast den Halterner See erreicht. Noch einmal links auf einen Fußweg, rechts und unter der Bahn hindurch und schon sehen wir den See, ohne den Haltern gar nicht mehr denkbar wĂ€re.
      Wir wandern an der „StadtmĂŒhle“ vorbei und gehen bald auf einem Fußweg parallel zum See. Immer wieder ergeben sich Ausblicke auf den See. An den WegrĂ€ndern haben in den letzten Jahren Ehepaare ihre LebensbĂ€ume gepflanzt. Schon bald nach der Baumreihe verlassen wir den X2 und folgen links der Markierung X17. Auf schönen Waldwegen wandern wir durch einen Forst. Kurz vor den ersten HĂ€usern von Sythen laufen wir links, am Bomber-Propeller scharf rechts und an der Straße links. Wir gehen an der Hauptstraße entlang, können noch einen Blick auf Schloss Sythen erhaschen, ĂŒberqueren den MĂŒhlenbach und haben dann unser Ziel, den Haltepunkt Sythen, erreicht.Quelle: “Wunderbar Wanderbar 2018”

      We begin our day's stage on the Neanderlandsteig at the Gruiten station. Behind the parking lot it goes on a dirt road down into the valley of the DĂŒssel to farm Gut Ehlenbeck. It is surprising how fast we dive into an idyllic cultural landscape. The Dusseltal valley has retained a very natural beauty.We walk along the DĂŒssel and admire the peacocks, which have their home in a large estate on the right. After some nice kilometers along the DĂŒssel we reach Gruiten village.We cross a busy country road and walk through the nature reserve Grube 7. The name is explained by the former use as a limestone quarry. A former loading station is reminiscent of the industrial use of the area. Meanwhile, the pit 7 is a retreat for endangered species. We go uphill and reach the small game park at Haus Poock and the restaurant of the same name. We change the side of the road and soon walk past the grove "Osterholz", which is located near the Wuppertal Prison Simonshöfchen.Passing the Wuppertal residential area of New-America we head again towards DĂŒsseltal, past the Quarter Horse Ranch. Therefore, sometimes we have to squeeze past narrow-bodied horses (and sometimes riders) on our narrow trail. We then walk along an exceptionally enchanting section of the DĂŒssel, characterized by a narrow, winding path, the romantic stream and lush vegetation.Shortly before the Schinderhannesturm Schöller we walk out of the DĂŒsseltal. Via the historic Alte Kölnische Landstraße the red markings of the Neanderlandsteig lead us to DĂŒssel. DĂŒssel is a district of WĂŒlfrath, named after the stream that flows through the historic center. A perfect destination for our hiking day in Neanderland, because before the bus leaves for Wuppertal, you have time to take a look at the place and stop for a while.Source: "Wonderful Wanderbar 2018"

      The hike initially leads along a pond and a mine dump, remnants of the former mining site in Kelmis, which is now covered by an extraordinary flora. In the spring you can find galmeives and Westphalian fescue. Even ladybugs and grasshoppers feel at home in this place, which exudes a touch of the south. In addition to the pond, which was set up to wash the zinc out of the quarries, the rich industrial past has left further traces in the landscape. At the beginning, the hike does not take you far past the Eyneburg, which does not fall out of line in this wonderful setting. At the foot of the hill, the path is easily accessible. The rare paths and small streets lead through wide pasture and farmland in this agricultural part of the country. Nevertheless, the hike is very varied. Here and there, groves, hedges and fruit trees decorate this landscape, which is sometimes traversed by footbridges. In Hohnbachtal, nature has performed wonders and created a small paradise from the former mining site.+++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++For the narcissus blooms in March and April, this circular walk is especially worthwhile!

      Nature reserve Rodebach / Roode BeekA restored natural area with streams, meadows, pastures and forestsOn 750 hectares along the Rodebach / Roode Beek, in the Brunssumer and the Teverener Heide lies a rich natural area with streams, meadows, pastures and forests. The centuries-old wetland along the Rodebach was systematically drained for a long time, with straight troughs and barren agricultural land dominating the landscape. After a comprehensive renaturation, nature now gets its free rein again. With the renaturated river valleys and the extensive pastureland the development of nature has received new impulses. A small-scale landscape mosaic of nutrient-rich swamps, flowery meadows and moist groves develops and provides a home for many rare and endangered animal and plant species. Breeding birds and dragonflies benefit from the growing supply of reeds and shrubs, and the flowering pastures are an Eldorado for butterflies.Scottish Highland cattle roam the area in family groups and provide grazing for the preservation of large open grassland areas.On the Dutch side is the Schinvelder forest one of the largest forest areas in southern Limburg. Clay layers provide a moist soil and valuable forest biotopes in the south. In the sandy north, isolated heath shrubs are reminiscent of the former heath landscape. In the 19th century, one planted the present pine forest, whose wood was used as a support in the mine tunnels. Today the forest is allowed to develop freely: fallen trees remain lying, the forest clears and gradually a natural deciduous forest with birches and oaks sets in again.The 14 oil and grain mills that lined up along Rodebach and Roode Beek can tell from more than 700 years of history. In 1970 the last mill was shut down. The buildings and millstones are often still preserved and in some places the millers have become innkeepers.

      Nature reserve EgelsbergThe Egelsberg is the remainder of a terminal moraine that
      the Saale glacial glacier from the north
      coming from sand and gravel piled up by the Rhine
      Has. At the southern edge are still remnants of a Sanders detectable. The sander was formed when the glacier melted down due to the shifting of sand and gravel with the meltwater.
      Of particular interest is the presence of low-mineral, acidic sandy soils, which are relatively rare on the Lower Rhine and provide an "ecological niche" to various endangered plant and animal societies.The Egelsberg was considered military for many years
      Practice area used. Despite the glitches and
      many destructions through the exercises was this
      beneficial for nature conservation as the uniqueness of vegetation and wildlife has been largely preserved. Most other comparable areas in the vicinity are affected by fertilization, construction or other intensive uses.
      The nature reserve also includes the wetland west of the Kirschkamper Weg, which was created by cutting down coal mining in the last 20 years.krefeld.de/C1257478002CCFBA/files/Flyer_Egelsberg.pdf/$file/Flyer_Egelsberg.pdf

      A scenic and varied circuit between Erkrath and Mettmann. We move mainly on forest roads. A smaller part of the trail runs on open terrain, past fields, meadows and the grounds of the golf course Kosaido. Again and again we come in the course of our hike on the Stinderbach and follow him through its picturesque valley.droste-verlag.de/downloads/lp/1433.pdf

      The Ebbekamm in the Sauerland is one of the most striking mountain ranges of the nature park. It has a cool and humid climate with high rainfall. On the southern slopes, spring and slope moors as well as bog and marsh forests have developed. In the Ebbemooren very rare plants such as moor line, sundew or cranberry are at home. These bogs are so unique that the area has been designated as a nature reserve of pan-European importance. The area of the entire protected areas covers almost 1,000 ha.
      The Nordhelle is with 663 m above sea level the highest elevation of the Ebbegebirge.
      The route leads from the car park Nordhelle rising to the Robert Kolb Tower. From there follow the Höhweg in the direction of Spinne. With 663 m above sea level. NN is here also the highest elevation of the Ebbegebirge the Nordhelle.On the top of the Nordhelle stands in direct neighborhood to the 150m high transmitting tower of the WDR the Robert Kolb tower. This 18m high observation tower was named after a deserved Hauptwegewart the Sauerland Mountain Association (SGV). Robert Kolb (1867-1909) develops u.a. the main hiking trail network in the Sauerland and introduced the uniform marking of hiking trails, which is used internationally today. From 2010-11 elaborately renovated Robert Kolb tower you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Ebbe mountains. The tower is open at business hours of the restaurant at his foot.Directions:Parking lot Nordhelle, follow the hiking trail X6 to the Robert-Kolb-Turm, Höhweg, Spinne, on the Rehberg, RĂŒenhardt in the direction of Haus Ebbe. We leave the X6 on the BĂ€rlappweg, on the south slope path back to the spider. On the SĂŒdhangweg (Auf'm Ebbe / Ebbemoore) back to the parking lot Nordhelle.

Wenn ich eine schöne Tour erleben durfte, versuche ich durch HinzufĂŒgen einer möglichst ausfĂŒhrlichen Tourenbeschreibung und aussagekrĂ€ftiger Fotos meine Begeisterung an andere Wanderfreunde weiterzugeben.
Wenn dies jemanden gefÀllt - und ich inspiriere hierdurch den/die Eine(n) oder Andere(n) zum Wandern einer Tour in unserer schönen Natur - dann freut mich das sehr!
