Hey! The day is getting shorter and shorter, but there’s something you can look forward to, right?? Yes! The Christmas market! This time we are hiking from Kettwig to Ratingen, where we are going to bump into one of the best Christmas markets in the area!
So the plan is quite simple: we’re gonna see each other at Düsseldorf Hbf at 11:15. Then:
Dep: 11:30 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 14 (S 6)
Arr: 11:54 Kettwig Stausee – Platform 2
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 13.9km. We’ll have a break at Hösel. The total duration of the hike according to Komoot is 3:43. We will probably be back in Düsseldorf Hbf around 16:30 (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.
