Hiking to Essen and Christmas market!

December 15, 2019 @ 10:45 am – 6:00 pm

Hey! It’s indeed cold outside, but maybe some exercise is what you in fact need. With a lot of cool people and the traditional German Christmas market, it’s even better, right? This time I’m proposing a hike from Essen-Kupferdreh to Essen, where we’ll crash the beautiful local Christmas market!

So the plan is as follows: we’re gonna see each other in front of Düsseldorf Hbf at 10:45am. Then:

  1. Dep: 11:12 Düsseldorf Hbf – Platform 13 (ERB20075)
  2. Arr: 11:25 Wuppertal-Vohwinkel – Platform 3
  3. Dep: 11:33 Wuppertal-Vohwinkel (ABR S9)
  4. Arr: 11:57 Essen-Kupferdreh – 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! 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 13 km. We’ll have a break somewhere on the way (there’ll be a lot of possibilities). 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.

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

Hope to see you there!
