Velbert-Nierenhof to Velbert

The stage begins at the S-Bahn in Velbert-Nierenhof and we quickly hike through a bright and sparse (primeval) forest. It goes north past Velbert-Langenberg and soon we enjoy a premium view over the Ruhr area.

As soon as we saw the Ruhr area, we were already in the Essen city area. We continue through the ancient Asbachtal and then uphill again with first views of the key and castle town of Velbert. We cross the A44 and the neanderland STEIG takes us through the Langenhorster Forest and the Rosenbachtal.

This stage ends in Velbert near the Niederbergbahn panorama cycle path. Those who are not exhausted from hiking can now cycle a little on the Bahntrassenweg.
