Hiking from Dortmund to Witten!

August 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Hey! Did you notice that we’re nearing a very nice season for outside activities? Let’s get out and see what it is like! This time I’m proposing a hike around Hagen, a very nice area which ends in the beautiful city center of Hagen!

So the plan is as follows: we’re gonna see each other in front of Düsseldorf Hbf at 10:00am. Then:

  1. Dep: 10:21 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 17 (RE 28145)
  2. Arr: 11:14 Dortmund Hbf – Platform 8
  3. Dep: 11:32 Dortmund Hbf – Platform 3 (RB 14665)
  4. Arr: 11:47 Dortmund-Löttringhausen – 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! It’s within the VRR region so if you have a Ticket 2000/Semester ticket/Young Ticket Plus, you can travel there for free. Even if you don’t it’s very likely that someone can take you for free so just be there in time!

Then we’ll walk according to this map (in kml-format) or this map (in gpx-format). The total distance is something like 16 km. We’ll have a break at Peter’s Burg. 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!
