Hey! We’re reaching the day with the longest sunshine hours. Why not enjoy this great moment with other people outside? This time we’re hiking from Eitorf to Merten, going along this beautiful Siegsteig!
So the plan is quite simple: we’re gonna see each other in front of Köln Hbf at 10:00. Then:
Dep: 10:21 Köln Hbf – Platform 3 (RE9(10909))
Arr: 10:58 Eitorf – 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 VRS region so if you have a VRS ticket, 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 16.1km. We’ll have a break at the river Sieg. The total duration of the hike according to Komoot is 4:34. We will probably be back in Köln Hbf around 16:45. Komoot says this track is of average difficulty. So feel free to join us and 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.
