Hiking from Güldenwerth to Schaberg and Schlossburg!

Hey! Did you know that our region is full of great monuments and constructions? Let’s explore them with a lot of cool people! This time we are hiking from Güldenwerth to Schaberg, to go over the medieval castle Güldenwerth and the highest railway bridge of Germany at Schaberg!

So the plan is as follows: we’re gonna see each other at Düsseldorf Hbf at 10:30. Then:

  1. Dep: 10:55 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 11 (S 1)
  2. Arr: 11:17 Solingen Hbf – Platform 10
  3. Dep: 11:22 Solingen Hbf – Platform 9 (VIA S7)
  4. Arr: 11:39 Remscheid-Güldenwerth – Platform 1

Then we start hiking. Easy, isn’t it? If you come from a different city, feel free to join us wherever you want on the way!

Then we’ll walk according to this map (in kml-format) or this map (in gpx-format). The total distance is something like 15.9km. We’ll have a break at Schlossburg. The total duration of the hike according to Komoot is 4:33. We will probably be back in Düsseldorf Hbf around 17:30 (with considerable uncertainty). Komoot says this track is of average difficulty. So don’t think too much and just enjoy! It would be helpful if you’d bring something to eat and a picnic blanket. You are also very welcome to bring a ball/frisbee, a guitar and more!

Regardless of the weather, I will NOT cancel the event, so please check it out yourselves and decide whether to come or not yourselves.

Hope to see you there!

Easter trip to Porto!
Apr 6 @ 8:00 am – Apr 10 @ 6:00 pm
Easter trip to Porto!

Hey! It’s again Easter – and this time it happens to include my birthday! So I decided to organize a group to trip to this beautiful city, Porto! Let’s enjoy the great weekend there together!

I booked two apartments (Apartment I, Apartment II) for 10 people each. If there are not enough people, we will stay in one of them. It’s going to be 150€ per person in total. As it turned out that there were several people arriving on the 5th and leaving on the 11th, you can also take this option – in this case it’s 220€ per person. I don’t organize the trip to Porto, so do it yourself ?

Prelude (Apr 5, Wednesday)

Not programme yet. You can get the keys from 3pm

Day I (Apr 6, Thursday)

We can have a short trip from Régua to Lamego. We can take a bus back from Lamego to Régua afterwards and then back by train.

Day II (Apr 7, Friday)

We are going to hike in the vineyards of the Douro valley.

Day III (Apr 8, Saturday)

My birthday 🙂 Maybe day trip to Braga (oldest city in Portugal?)

Day IV (Apr 9, Sunday)

Hiking in Valongo

Day V (Apr 10, Monday)

In principle only departure. Maybe we can also hike in Viana do Castelo according to the route above.

Postscript (Apr 11, Tuesday)

Departure for the people flying.
