" Der Sinn des Reisens ist, an ein Ziel zu kommen,
der Sinn des Wanderns, unterwegs zu sein. " (Theodor Heuss)
Es gibt wohl keinen Sinnspruch, der meine Motivation zum Wandern besser beschreiben k├Ânnte...Wandern ist f├╝r mich optimal, um im Kontakt mit der Natur zu sein, den Weg zu mir selbst zu finden und Gelegenheit zum Durchatmen zu haben ÔÇô fernab von Stadtrummel und High-Tech-Gesellschaft.
Ein Marsch an der frischen Luft ist eine wunderbare M├Âglichkeit, um abzuschalten. Die Ruhe dient der Entspannung und steigert zugleich mein Wohlbefinden.
Wenn ich eine sch├Âne Tour erleben durfte, versuche ich durch Hinzuf├╝gen einer m├Âglichst ausf├╝hrlichen Tourenbeschreibung und aussagekr├Ąftiger Fotos meine Begeisterung an andere Wanderfreunde weiterzugeben.
Wenn dies jemanden gef├Ąllt - und sollte ich hierdurch auch Andere zum Wandern einer Tour in unserer sch├Ânen Natur inspirieren - dann freut mich das sehr!
Keep on Hiking!!! ╩ĽÔÇó═íß┤ąÔÇó╩ö

      This small circular route is essentially based on the designated "A7" of the SGV.sgv-wuelfrath-mettmann.de/wanderwege.html
      The original start / finish point at the historic fire station was left out, but we added a small loop through the ghost grove ...
      (Unfortunately, the start of the tour via Eschenk├Ąmpchenweg is missing, the recording is broken off there ­čĹ║.)

      wanderinstitut.de/premiumwege/rheinland-pfalz/apollinaris-schleife"... The tour combines charming scenic aspects with smaller and larger cultural attractions. Starting at the imposing Apollinarisberg monastery church, it leads to a picturesque forest pond, crosses the open corridor with wide views, touches a small heather area and an old forest cemetery. In between there is even less adventurous passages but the bottom line is that the hiking tour is well composed. ... "Starting point (s):

      "... The first mention of a water-protected knight's seat of the Lords of Calcum zu Lohausen dates back to 1235. In 1804, after bankruptcy, they sold the knight's seat and the adjoining Lohauser Hof along with lands to the D├╝sseldorf colonial trader, city councilor and municipal councilor Heinrich Balthasar Lantz.
      After the death of Ludwig Lantz (1885-1969), the city of D├╝sseldorf bought the entire property in 1972. The servants' houses on Lohauser Dorfstrasse are giving way to modern residential buildings. ... "

      This little tour is also based on a chance observation. Days before we were driving west on the A524 on the way to Krefeld-Linn. On the right we saw the previously unknown "Rahmer See", which we explored spontaneously.
      Much information about the Rahmer See is not to be found on the net, except that it is approx. 48 hectares in size and "offers at best little tourist potential".
      There is no designated (circular) hiking trail around the lake, but rather a narrow trail on the west and south side, which is also popular with mountain bikers. From this path, which encloses about 2/3 of the lake, there are some quite nice views of the lake.
      Unfortunately, the north and east sides of the lake are not freely accessible, there are private properties and an industrial park that limit access to the lake. All that remains is the path over the asphalt ...

      The day before we had seen a very large (Merino -?) Flock of sheep in the Styrum Ruhr floodplains while driving on the A3 in a northerly direction. Reason enough to pay a visit to this area (and the sheep ­čÉĆ ­čÉĹ) and take a casual, unplanned tour ... - with the conclusion that we will definitely take a longer circular route in the Ruhr meadows when the opportunity is right. . ­čśÇ

      The Uettelsheimer See in Duisburg-Homberg offers the best conditions for a successful day outdoors.
      In the water playground, children can let off steam as they please in the water playground.
      Those looking for peace and quiet can enjoy the view over the water on the numerous benches and linger there.
      And active visitors can use the 7.5 km long circular hiking trail through the natural recreation area and the nearby Rheinaue.
      << History of the Uettelsheimer See >>
      To the north of the Homberg Park Cemetery, gravel excavation created an area of water for which the then city of Homberg decided to expand it into a recreational area as a subsequent use. The expansion began in 1969 and was continued in several stages according to the status of the gravel and recultivation.
      The first design plans for the Uettelsheimer See did not contain any concrete statements about the type and scope of the recreational opportunities. The focus was initially on the preparation of the bank lines and bank reinforcements, the creation of vegetation areas and the construction of paths.
      After the regional reform, the construction work was continued by the city of Duisburg and completed in the southern part of the lake at the beginning of the 1980s. With the designation as a leisure and recreation focus in the area development plan, the importance of the recreation area beyond the city district was underlined.
      In order to enable playful and sporty recreational use, the water areas were enlarged and play and sunbathing areas were created. Another planning goal for the design of the recreation area was set to create a natural landscape.
      At the beginning of the 1990s, a water play area and a weather protection roof with seating and barbecue facilities were built in the southern area of the lake.

      rheinsteig.de/rheinsteigThe highlights of this stage are certainly the views from the Stux, from the Erpeler Ley and from Ockenfels Castle (The castle is private property and cannot be visited. The view from the meadows in front of the castle is just as beautiful.)The steady climb up to the Marienberg (formerly school camp), the Ehrenfriedhof von Bruchhausen and the Bruchhauser Heide (camping site) begins in Unkel. On the high plateau you can let your gaze wander far. At the edge of the terrain plateau, a narrow path branches off, which winds down to a small waterfall in the H├Ąhnerbachtal. From there, the ascent to the Stux begins, which is rewarded with a fascinating view not far from the television mast.
      It is now almost a walk to Orsberg, where it is time to climb again to Erpeler Ley with a rest area and excursion restaurant. A large wooden cross commemorates the victims in the battle for the Ludendorff Bridge between Erpel and Remagen in 1944/45. The bridge towers can be seen from the Ley. Now it goes down to the viaduct of the Kasbachtalbahn and after a short ascent to the tracks further towards Burg Ockenfels, which is privately owned. We walk past the castle on an asphalt road through Ockenfels to walk uphill again past the last houses and garden plots. Before you descend over a narrow path to the stage destination, there is another far-reaching view of Erpeler Ley in the north, the Ahr valley on the other side of the Rhine and as far as Bad Breisig in the south.
      When you arrive in Linz, you should plan a little time for a stroll through the historic old town. The booth owes its nickname "The Colorful City on the Rhine" to the numerous colorful half-timbered houses. One of the oldest town halls in Rhineland-Palatinate is located on the market square. On the way to the train station, you pass Linz Castle, which is in close proximity to the Rhine and from here, among other things, controlled shipping (customs).

      rheinsteig.de/rheinsteigA network of legends stretches around the region. Seven giants are said to have dug a trench for the Rhine after it had previously burned against the rocks in vain. When the giants made it, they made their way home. But because they didn't want to come back with dirty spades, everyone tapped their tools on the ground to loosen the earth. This is how the hills of the Siebengebirge were created.From Bad Honnef train station it goes through the village to Mucherwiesental, where you meet the Rheinsteig near the youth hostel. A valley opens from the right, which follows the route up to the Barbarah├╝tte (burnt down). From here, the ascent to the nearby Leyberg is recommended, a basalt cone with a wonderful panoramic view of the Siebengebirge. Back at the foot of the hilltop, follow a hillside path over to the meeting point at the wayside shrine, the Eye of God. In the past, forest owners often had to deal with wood thieves. Therefore they erected a plaque with the warning "One eye is what sees everything, even what happens in the dark of night". It is not known whether the thieves were impressed by this.
      The descent down to the Breitbachtal begins at the spider road, past the remains of a former V-1 launch pad in the forest. In the past, ores were dug in many pits throughout the area, and a large cross commemorates miners who had died in an accident. In the valley, the Rheinsteig turns left (south) shortly before a former melt and we approach the hiking destination Unkel.

      wa-wa-we.eu/de/touren/zwei-seen-runde/index.html"... Short description of the route:
      The best entry point to this versatile circular hiking trail is at the M├╝hlrather Hof in Schwalmtal. From here it goes past smaller pieces of forest to the Laarer Bach. This meanders through the wetlands, past fields and meadows, to Lake Laar. A few minutes later, the hikers reach the Schwalm, which is 45 kilometers long from its source at T├╝schenbroich to its confluence with the Maas.
      Down the river the path leads to Borner M├╝hle and Borner See. It is worth taking a break here to watch the many species of birds go by.
      The animals find ideal conditions in this reserve. Then the path leads through a quaint forest area, along a stretch of the Schwalm, to the Hariksee and back to the M├╝hlrather mill.
      Tips and special features:
      On this typical Lower Rhine hiking trail, hikers encounter witnesses to history. This includes the Borner M├╝hle, which is mentioned for the first time in 1412. The millers kept the milling operation up until 1960. In Born, a district of Br├╝ggen, the church of St. Peter has been in its current position since at least 1136. The Borner See was created by cutting peat in the 17th century. After it was dredged in 1976, it now serves as a retention basin for the region's water management.
      The M├╝hlrath mill dates from 1447 and was originally a flax and oil mill. In 1905 she got an iron water wheel to provide enough power for a sawmill. The hiker meets another contemporary witness on the ground: the railway tracks belonged to the railway line from Br├╝ggen to D├╝lken, which was closed in 1975. ... "
