Around Remscheid

By bicycle through the magical Wupper valley

Cycling is fun here. On this tour, you experience the colourful variety of nature and culture. You start out from Remscheid-Lennep. Cycle downhill at a lively pace and enjoy the far-reaching panoramic views. One of the most beautiful sections of the Wupper valley is at your feet. Wonderful: a rest stop under shady trees. Brückenpark Müngsten is the ideal place for a picnic. With a view of the imposing Müngsten Bridge.

Part of the route takes you along the Balkantrasse. A relaxing cycle along the former railway line is a must.

You can also change forms of transport along the way. You can get to the other bank of the Wupper with ease by taking the transporter bridge. Or change over to the cablecar. This also takes cyclists up to Schloss Burg. Bicycle transport included.

At the end of the tour, one more highlight awaits: a detour to the historic town centre of Lennep and a stop at one of the cosy restaurants.
