    Hiking from Braubach to Koblenz

    There’s this super annoying thing called Deutsche Bahn. This time it got us really hard again. Download kml / gpx This time we anyway had a fairly tight schedule with 10 min time to change trains at Koblenz to go to Braubach. With no good alternative at hand, I could only hope that the things would go well. When the train arrived in Düsseldorf, it already had a delay of 5 min. Already pretty tight. Over the course of the journey to Cologne, it started accumulating a few min of delay. Both DB and we were very hopeful that things…

    Hiking around Mechernich

    Today I did something for the first time: I joined a hike that someone else organized. Well, it’s not literally true, because last summer I cycled with Amalia to Wuppertalsperre to join Hilal’s hike. This time, however, it’s not a…

    Weekend trip to Bad Berleburg!

    It’s around 3 years ago now that we started organizing weekend trips in apartments. At that time, I looked for options on booking.com for some time, and one of them was this one in Bad Berleburg. In this regard, the…

    Hiking around Jülich and Sophienhöhe!

    It’s been more than 7 years since I started organizing hikes and I was feeling I know most of the places for hikes inside NRW. As it turned out, there was a Halde at Jülich I had never been to.…
