Hey! It’s June! The longest days are just ahead of us. Don’t you think it’s a great moment to get out and enjoy a beautiful day with a lot of cool people!? This time we are hiking around Blankenberg, a beautiful area in Bergisches Land with a visit to the Blankenberg castle!

So the plan is as follows: we’re gonna see each other at Düsseldorf Hbf at 09:30. Then:

  1. Dep: 09:58 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 16 (RE 5 (28511))
  2. Arr: 10:25 Köln Messe/Deutz – Platform 8
  3. Dep: 10:33 Köln Messe/Deutz – Platform 9 (S 12)
  4. Arr: 11:10 Blankenberg(Sieg) – 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 17.8km. We’ll have a break in Uckeradt. The total duration of the hike according to Komoot is 4:57. We will probably be back in Düsseldorf Hbf around 18:00 (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.
