Stage 08: Mülheim-Selbeck - Ratingen



18,81 km long
regional hiking trail
Varied stage that is easy to hike despite its length as it has no noticeable gradients. Through the forests in the north of the neanderlandIt goes along beautiful streams and lakes. The highway and airport encounters are also interesting.

Mülheim-Selbeck to Ratingen

Shortly after the start of the stage we can catch a glimpse of the well-kept Selbeck golf course. Then it goes into the forest and shortly afterwards we cross the A3.

We walk about ten kilometers in a wide arc around the Lintorf district of Ratingen. We also get a little taste of Duisburg. Towards the end of the path, the passage directly along the runway of Düsseldorf Airport is spectacular.

The tour ends in the Volkardey Recreation Park between Silbersee and Grüner See. The change of extensive forest routes as well as the points of contact with the traffic flows around neanderland are the characteristic of this stage.

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.
