Stage 03: Velbert-Neviges - Velbert



7,37 km long
regional hiking trail

Demanding but short stage including a strong final climb with a mountain finish. In the near-natural Windrath valley, you pass meadows and fields. Some of the farms run cozy courtyard cafés that invite you to stop by.

Velbert-Neviges to Velbert-Nordrath

It starts at the Neviges S-Bahn station. This stage, which is quite short at 7,2 kilometers, is extremely varied, a farm to farm stage so to speak: farms, horse farms, organic farms and a trout farm are our companions. First of all, only uphill, on beautiful field paths and narrow meadow paths. A highlight halfway there is the Windrath Chapel, dedicated to Saint Suitbertus, who died over 1.300 years ago neanderland missionized. The hikers' mission, however, is to reach their destination after the Windrath chapel and the organic farms in the Windrath valley up to Nordrath.

Good to know

safety instructions

Please stay on the paths. The narrow paths can be slippery in places, especially in wet weather. Be careful with embankments or cliff edges, keep your distance.


Good hiking shoes should already be. Depending on the season and the weather, a jacket is a must along the many cool streams and in the deep forests, as well as on the often windy heights.
