Bergisches Wanderland App

All 26 stages of the two long-distance trails and all 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.


Download the app

The app about the hiking trails in Bergisches Wanderland can be used on Android devices and iPhones. 

It is currently not possible to download the app from App Store or Google Play Store. However, on www.bergisches-wanderland-app.de you can access a Progressive Web App and add it to your home screen. It works in exactly the same way as the old app. 

The previous app is no longer supported or updated, as the mapping service has been discontinued, which means the maps can no longer be depicted in the app. If you have already downloaded the app previously, you will still be able to use it with limited functionality. However, we recommend using the new Progressive Web App, which includes the new discovery trail #14, the Höhlenweg (Cave Trail).
