Hiking from Abenden to Rur!

August 1, 2020 @ 9:15 am – 7:00 pm

Hey! Just suffering from home without knowing what to do in the summer? Just join us and see how it could be made much better! This time I’m proposing a hike to the lake Rur, which lies in the middle of the Eifel!

So the plan is as follows: we’re gonna see each other in front of Düsseldorf Hbf at 9:15am. Then:

  1. Dep: 09:40 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 16 (RE 26814)
  2. Arr: 10:38 Düren – Platform 1
  3. Dep: 11:20 Düren – Platform 4 a (RTB77144)
  4. Arr: 11:57 Abenden

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! Thanks to the summer promotion of VRR and VRS, you can travel there for free if you have a VRR or VRS ticket, in which case, you can even take one person for free!

Then we’ll walk according to this map (in kml-format) or this map (in gpx-format). The total distance is something like 14 km. We’ll have a break at the lake. It would be helpful if you’d bring something to eat and a picnic blanket.

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

This event is also organized on Meetup. Check it out from this page!

Hope to see you there!
