Au parking de randonnée Igelshof, je me dirige vers "An der Realschule". Le chemin monte dans la forêt. A un carrefour, tourner à droite sur le HÖHENPFAD, qui longe la pente au-dessus de la Sieg. Vous suivez le chemin naturel en montée et en descente à travers les vallées. Il y a toujours des vues sur Herchen et la victoire. Le chemin mène à travers la forêt de feuillus jusqu'à un large chemin et à un ABRI HUT. Ici, vous avez une belle vue sur les tours de Saint-Pierre et l'église protestante de Herchen. Le chemin passe devant la cabane jusqu'à un monument. La soi-disant THINGPLATZ a été construite sous les nationaux-socialistes et a servi de mémorial aux soldats morts pendant la Première Guerre mondiale et de scène en plein air pour les événements festifs.
Via le Natursteig Sieg, vous continuez jusqu'à GERRESSEN, un hameau sur les hauteurs ouvertes entre Siegtal et Ottersbachtal. A la sortie du village, suivre la route à droite. Les prairies s'étendent vers la gauche, la vue se porte à l'horizon où l'on aperçoit les montagnes du Siebengebirge derrière les collines. Le mont des Oliviers s'élève bien au-dessus de la chaîne de montagnes. À travers une forêt tranquille, il descend jusqu'à un petit étang et continue vers Neuenhof. Vous tombez sur le sentier de randonnée balisé "S sur fond bleu". Nous continuons le long d'un chemin de prairie sur un chemin forestier et vers la Siegpromenade. Après le parcours de la victoire, vous arrivez à Herchen, passez devant des aires de pique-nique et une location de bateau. Au Löwenburg, un pont mène sur la Sieg et revient au point de départ.

In Seelscheid, on the ridge between Wahnbachtal and Naafbachtal, I make my way to the nature reserve. The Naafbachtal is a very rural area with small farms, hamlets, half-timbered houses and mills. Some of the old buildings were placed under monument protection to prevent their demolition, including the Naafer Mühle in the lower part of the Naafbach valley in the Lohmar area. A bridge leads over the Naafbach. At this point the Naafbach and the Lessbach converge. The next bridge leads over the Lessbach and towards Deesem.
Around 1300 an ecbert de disimize appears on an interest card from the Cäcilienstift in Cologne. It goes on dirt roads to Breitscheid and back to Seelscheid.

Lush, wide meadows and fields as well as beautiful views are embedded in the cultural landscape of Hennef. The Kulturlandweg was opened in 2012 as the Sieg Adventure Trail and offers a variety of insights into the historical landscape of the region.
The varied route is lined with information boards along the way, through which hikers can get to know the cultural landscape of the region. Dams tame the Sieg and protect the surrounding land from flooding.
The church tower of the village of Happerschoss can be seen in the distance. The path leads over wide fields and meadows. The sometimes steep paths open up a view of the next relic of the cultural landscape: the former moated castle, Allner Castle, is on the right.
Through a narrow passage it goes down to the Schloßstraße. The remains of a grain and oil mill can be seen on the banks of the Sieg. Along the castle wall and the victory it goes through the floodplains back to Hennef.
At the Hennef train station.
Hennef train station can be easily reached by S-Bahn.

The Marienweg is only a short hiking trail, but it offers an excursion into the long history of Bödingen. Since the 14th century, the origin and development of the place has been closely linked to its pilgrimage church, the late Gothic basilica "Zur Painful Mother", which can be seen from afar as a landmark.
On this tour you can see stations associated with faith and pilgrimages. The path leads on a processional path to Lauthausen with its Joseph Chapel.
The route leads back to Bödingen via Altenbödingen and through the Halberger Bachtal.

Because several small places are passed, the way is mostly over asphalt. The rest are meadow paths, forest paths or forest roads.
Hiking possible all year round. Best season April to October.

In the middle of the metropolitan area on the right bank of the Rhine, at the gates of Cologne, lies the Wahner Heide, with a diversely structured landscape and valuable individual biotopes. The heather belongs to the European nature protection heritage and is an important bird sanctuary.
From the Busenberg the path leads to the right through the heather to the old cemetery of the prison camp for the foreign victims of the Wehrmacht - or, as it says on the stone, of “hunger, disease and violence”.
From here the path leads into the “Königsforst”, as the David bush is called on old maps. Over the Pestalozziweg it goes to the Wolfsweg. The route is probably of medieval origin, leads from Spich to Rösrath and is now interrupted by the airport. Over the Wolfsweg and the November firebreak it goes through the Geisterbusch, and over the Brandweg back to the starting point on the Busenberg.
From its flat height you can see the edge of Cologne and Cologne-Bonn Airport, two and a half kilometers away with its terminals.

Immediately behind the Derenbachtal hiking car park, a path that becomes narrower goes uphill. In the middle of the forest you come across the "Nutscheid Höhenhandelsstraße", an old connecting route between Cologne and the Siegerland. Initially still on wider paths, later then alternately downhill and uphill - sometimes on very narrow paths - you continue past a refuge and steeply down to the vicinity of the Derenbach. Then the route leads uphill on a forest path in gentle serpentines until the village of Winterscheid with its beautiful Romanesque church of St. Servatius is reached. The path leads steeply downhill over meadows, then later uphill on beautiful paths through the forest to the village of Schreckenberg with its old fruit trees and half-timbered houses. We continue along trees of different ages and heights along the way. Past a refuge, a forest path leads steeply down the Rennenberg until you reach the starting point again.

At the parking lot of the Breitscheid sports facility, I make my way towards Breitscheid. Via Breidscheider Straße it goes about 500 m to the Lessbachtal. After approx. 1.2 km you reach Seelscheid. The path leads over Breite Straße towards Naafbachtal. At a distance of approx. 500 meters from the Naafbach, it is approx. 3 kilometers to Wahlen, back to the Lessbach Valley and back to the starting point.
Parking at the sports complex.

In Viersbrücken I make my way to the Naafbachtal. The path leads about 4.5 kilometers through the nature reserve along the Naafbach to Ingersaueler Mühle, and on to shortly before Seelscheid.
Via the "KRÄUTERWEG" the Bergisches Streifzug 19, it goes through the Holzbachtal to Klauserhof, again into the Naafbachtal, and back to the starting point.
Varied hike. In the nature reserve, the paths near the Naafbach are muddy in some places. Sturdy shoes are recommended.

A narrow path leads from the hiking car park to the edge of the forest and up to the top. Here you have a beautiful view of hills, meadows and forests. The path leads through the forest and through sparse birch stands towards Unterlüttingau. Via the Panoramasteig access path, you reach the Bevertalsperre dam after about 300 meters. It leads over to Großhöhenfeld. If you look to the left you can see the campsite. At the end of the village the path leads into a valley. In front of the houses in Hasenburg it goes steeply uphill through a forest and in the direction of EGEN. The Church of the Immaculate Conception is well worth a visit.
Downhill, through a meadow valley, through a beech forest and along a forest path, you reach the banks of the Neyetalsperre. Continue straight ahead on the A 7 on the banks of the dam for about 4 kilometers to the dam of the Neyetalsperre. After about 800 meters you will reach the starting point.
Forest paths, partly asphalt. Best time April to October.

The hike around Thomasberg is a varied tour, as it shows the former stone quarrying, the agricultural uses as well as settlement structures in the Siebengebirge nature reserve.
The hike begins at Heiserbach Abbey, leads past the Weilberg, through the Kassel Heath with its orchards and fields. Through the Lauterbachtal it goes towards Blauer See, and through the new building area towards Kleiner Oelberg and in the forest landscape on the edge of Thomasberg.
Through light deciduous forest it goes to the Rosenauwiesen, with their orchards. The "Waimannsruh" inn stands by the roadside.
The path leads to the Stenzelberg, a quarry that serves as a protected habitat and is closely connected to the Heisterbach monastery as a former stone supplier.
The route leads outside of the localities largely on gravel field and forest paths.
There are some very steep climbs, for example to the Weilberg and the Kleiner Oelberg.
Refreshments in the Waidmannsruh restaurant and in the Heisterbach monastery room.
