The discovery trails on various themes are a popular attraction in Bergisches Wanderland. The Bergische Streifzüge (Bergisch Scout Trails) entice with various historical, natural history, literary or technical themes. The adventurous tours - mostly loop trails - are between 4 and 16 kilometres long and offer a great variety of information boards and experience stations. Along the trails through the species-rich landscape of the Bergisches Land nature park, you will learn exciting facts about the nature, history and culture of the region. In order that children also have fun hiking, we have developed six family routes where the mouse (from the TV) accompanies the children. Along eight of the Bergische Streifzüge (Bergisch Hiking Trails), audio stations provide hikers with information on the respective themes of the trails.
Here you’ll find an overview of the Bergisch discovery trails; the relevant flyer and GPX track can be downloaded for each route.
A folder containing all discovery trail flyers can be purchased from our shop along with books about the Bergisch discovery trails.
