Worum es bei uns geht

Hello altogether! This group aims to bring together all hiking enthusiasts from Düsseldorf and its region. Our hikes lead us across Düsseldorf as well as all the beautiful places surrounding our city. By the way: Every member is more than welcome to suggest his and her own hiking ideas. Simply write a message to one of our organizers and we'll figure out a great tour! On another note, this group is proud to be a very international communtity with great folks from all around the world. What defines the meetup culture is the mutual respect towards each other regardless of one's ethnicity, sexuality or political views. All that matters is the willingness to having a great time together! :)

Mit wanderfreudigem Gruß

Hike from Gerresheim to Hubbelrath to Knittkuhl and back (#2020-12)

Park&Ride Gerresheim Krankenhaus U-Bahnhof

Please familiarize yourself with some – at least for right now – new rules. <> Maximum of 10 participants. <> No handshakes or hugs. <> Keep a distance to other hikers (unless you live in the same household) of 6 feet = 2 meters <> No restaurant visits. Note: Please bring instead some snacks / lunch along with you. Hopefully, we will find an appropriate picnic place towards the end of our hikes. However, please understand that finding a suitable place for 10 people may not always work out. We will start our hike at the tram station “Gerresheim Krankenhaus” in Düsseldorf, the terminal stop of Tram 708 and U 83 (https://goo.gl/maps/4vG1PjFHVioagg259) and finish it at the very same place. We will hike counter-clock-wise on a rather nice round course which will lead us through areas of forest, field, and fauna and - at times - over some paved surfaces on small streets. The first suburb / village we reach is Hubbelrath (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubbelrath) … also traversing the “Rotthäuser Bachtal” (https://www.duesseldorf-tourismus.de/wanderer/naturschutzgebiet-rotthaeuser-bachtal/). Continuing our hike for several kilometers we will finally walk through the newest suburb of Düsseldorf … Knittkuhl. Soon after that we will reach the “Rennbahn” (horse race track) with the adjacent golf course. From there it's about 1/2 hour to where we began our hike. Note: This is a rain or shine hike. So, please wear the appropriate cloth and good hiking shoes … it might be slippery at certain places. If you have hiking poles it might be a good idea to bring them … whatever you feel comfortable with. We will also hike in light rain. If the forecast should call for heavy rain, we will cancel the hike. As always, you participate and hike at your own risk. ***WHAT: Difficulty rating: easy, approximately 16 km … depending on the group and the breaks we take ... around 4 – 4,5 hours. ***WHEN: Sunday, November 1 at 10:30 am. Note: Not later, otherwise you will miss the hike. ***WHERE: U 83 / Tram station 708: “Gerresheim Krankenhaus” (https://goo.gl/maps/4vG1PjFHVioagg259) in Düsseldorf. ***DIRECTIONS (example): Tram 709 from Düsseldorf Hbf, Bahnsteig 5 at 10:14 am, arriving at Gerresheim Krankenhaus, Bahnsteig 2 at 10:33 am. ***PARTICIPANTS: Maximum of 10 Wandervögel. ***REQUIRED: Some hiking experience, 1-liter water or energy drinks, weather appropriate outfit, good hiking shoes. ***OTHERS: We plan to stop for a picnic lunch somewhere towards the end of our hike.

It’s only fair to the other Wandervögel on the wait list. Thanks, Lemmy

Hike: Estuary of the Erft (#2020-13)

Neuss Stadthalle/Museum

Note: Please bring instead some snacks / lunch along with you. Hopefully, we will find an appropriate picnic place towards the end of our hikes.

We will start our hike at the Tram Station “Neuss Stadthalle/Museum" (https://goo.gl/maps/YcYUjrPFRG52) of Tram 709 (Bahnsteig 5) … after a short walk we’ll reach the meadows of the river Rhine and continue to the estuary of the river Erft (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erft). The river Erft is a bit more than 100 km long. The spring is in the Eifel and the estuary is in Neuss (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuss) … precisely in Neuss-Grimlinghausen. By the way: Neuss is the 4th oldest city in Germany … founded in 26 BC by the romans. Here, at the estuary, we start our hike in earnest. We hike then along the river Erft traversing the small towns of Gnadenthal and Erfttal, continuing to the “Selikum Park” (with a petting zoo) and to “Castle Reuschenberg” (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Reuschenberg_(Neuss)). Here we circle back through one part of Neuss called Pomona (the name comes from the roman goddess for tree fruits. Interesting. Isn’t it?) towards downtown Neuss where our hike ends.
