From Lennep to the Valley of Cloth

Cycle, stop, be amazed

A cycle tour with loads of stops. Exciting excursion destinations are scattered along the way. Including two reservoirs and the textile city. As well as the German Röntgen Museum. And invite you to get involved and experiment. Not just an adventure for little cyclists.

Start your tour in Remscheid-Lennep. From there, you cycle along small roads with fantastic views. Follow the course of the Wupper through the “Valley of Cloth”. At Textilmuseum Wülfing, you can wander around and find traces of the old clothmakers on the original site.

Feel like a little refreshment? Rest stops by the water are available at Wuppertalsperre and Panzertalsperre. You can also swim there in summer.

And finally, a pleasant cycle along the old railway lines once again. Via Balkantrasse back to Lennep. Here, the historic town centre awaits you with its idyllic Bergisch atmosphere.
