12-stage hike through Naturpark Bergisches Land 

If you’re planning on walking the entire Panoramasteig, we recommend dividing it into 12 stages. The individual stages suggested by us are between 15.8 and 24.6 kilometres long and take you from one stopover location to the next. You’ll have no difficult finding suitable accommodation at each location, as our hospitality providers, “Gastgeber Bergisches Wanderland”, cater specifically for the needs of hikers. On request, they will be happy to transport your luggage, take you to the starting point for your hike or pick you up at the end point.  

Naturally, you can also deviate from our proposed trail stages and compile your own tours depending on the distance you wish to walk. We will be happy to assist you with the planning and provide you with the contact details of suitable hospitality establishments directly on the trail or within close proximity. Below you’ll find further information about the individual trail stages, including the following:  


  • Elevation profile 
  • GPX track 
  • Overview of the access paths 
  • Information about how to get there 
  • Current trail alerts in the case of damage or reroutes
