Bergischer Weg

In recent years, a long-distance trekking route through Bergisches Land has been blazed, which places special emphasis on near-natural paths with a minimum of paved sections. This continuous route passes by numerous historical structures that bring to life the Bergisches Land region and its typical cultural landscape. One part of this is the route “Bergischer Weg”, the fourth section of which passes through the habitat reservation between Burg and Müngsten.

Paths of tradition

For decades, the regional mountaineering club Sauerländischer Gebirgsverein (SGV) has been marking hiking trails, and offers regular hiking events in conjunction with its local sections. For this nature preserve at the intersection of the cities of Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal as well, the SGV has marked numerous trails.
