The start and Zielpink of today's tour was in the 1230 first mentioned city Lennep, which is a part of Remscheid today.
Lennep is one of the two historic centers of the so-called Bergisches Land and has come to prosperity through its tool and cloth-making industry. The well-preserved town center is characterized by the typical slate-tiled houses and absolutely worth seeing. Only the cafes seem to open only in the sunshine.
The most famous son of the city was Conrad Röntgen! In addition, Mannesmann AG was founded in Lennep.My way led me first to the Panzertalsperre, then to the dammed Wupper and to the conclusion to the Eschbachtalsperre.
The latter is the oldest drinking water dam Germany.

Today I participated in the International Hürtgenwald March. And this for the sixth time.
Organized by the Hürtgenwald reservists for 35 years, the event is entitled "Reconciliation over the graves".
The occasion was the fierce fighting between the Germans and the Americans between September 1944 and February 1945 in this scenic part of the Eifel. If you walk through this deeply cut area, you can sense the intensity and difficulty that both sides have faced.
Soldiers from the USA, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Belgium and of course Germany made up the majority of the participants. But the event is also open to civilians. Participation is free.

That's it, the Czech IML event. Below the line said a small event with a very small number of participants. The equipment of the stations were usually only water and sodas. On both days there was a yogurt at one station 😂
But luckily, there are many places to eat that are cheap.

The first day of this walking event is now history. It quickly became clear that this is not a mass event. Inadequacies in the signage, extremely friendly people and a family atmosphere make the march to a great event. I look forward to tomorrow!

Today I was in the Rhineland again. As a theme, the tour I created myself, I chose the castles and castles in the foothills.
Outstanding at the beginning of the tour were the castles Augustusburg and Falkenlust in Brühl, which together with the park have UNESCO World Heritage status. The entire complex was built in the first half of the 18th century and is absolutely worth a visit.
My round then led me past five other manors, but unfortunately they are all privately owned and can not be visited. But you could still catch a glimpse through the fence.

It's done! In the best parade weather, the Tyrolean country presented itself from its most beautiful side!
I took part in this walking event for the first time and it convinced me personally. Decisive were of course the wonderful landscape, the great weather and many super nice people. Well organized, a fair price and adequate catering rounded off the event.
Dear Marco, I would like to be back next year!
