Trail markings on the Bergischer Weg

The Bergische Weg (Bergisch Trail) is signposted throughout with orange markings. Follow these signs and enjoy the varied landscape, historical traces and wonderful views over the hills without having to look at your hiking map all the time. The markings in the terrain are easily recognisable. They are either in the form of stickers or spray-painted directly on the tree trunks. 

In addition to the markings, there are also signposts indicating the most important points. Restaurants, accommodation, train stations and sights are signposted there. The signposts show the distance to the next point mentioned on the trail.  

Please note we do not maintain the marking in the winter months because of the weather conditions. Missing markings will only be replaced the following spring. We ask that you inform us of missing markings so we can replace these as quickly as possible.

Markings on the access and connecting paths

In order that you can immediately find the right way to the The Bergische Weg (Bergisch Trail), several access routes are signposted. Most of the access routes begin in town centres, at trains stations or at sights and bring you directly onto The Bergische Weg (Bergisch Trail). The dark-coloured signs carry an image of the Bergischer Weg. The signs have a blue border, making them easily recognisable.
