Bergisches Wanderland App
All 26 stages of the two long-distance trails and all 24 discovery trails can be accessed via the Bergisches Wanderland App. In addition to a brief description of the routes, it includes photos and elevation profiles of the various trail stages and discovery trails. In the overview map (at certain zoom levels), the official Bergisches Land hiking map, which covers the entire hiking trail network, can be used as a general guide, providing assistance with navigating or planning your own route. And it goes without saying that the hospitality providers, “Gastgeber Bergisches Wanderland”, can be located on the map and contacted directly by phone should you wish to enquire about opening times or book a table.
In addition, the app helps you plan your journey to and from the hiking trail by car or public transport. This means you can use your smartphone as a hiking map and guide.
Via the app’s “Trail Detective”, hikers can send photos of damage or incorrect trail markings directly to the trail management team, enabling problems on the trails to be rectified more quickly. Current alerts about trail closures or diversions are displayed in the menu. Here you can also save tours that you have already completed or wish to repeat.
