Stage 13: Düsseldorf-Garath - Monheim am Rhein



15,62 km long
regional hiking trail
Varied, easy stage, with the lowest point of the whole neanderland STEIGs. The stage leads through Auenwald, along the Rhine and through the Monheim Rhine arch to the city limits of Leverkusen.

Dusseldorf-Garath to Monheim am Rhein

We start in Garath and walk along the meandering Garather Mühlenbach in the direction of the Rhine. We quickly reach the Urdenbacher Kämpe, a nature reserve in a class of its own: An old branch of the Rhine, diverse flora and fauna, unspoilt meadow orchards and, as a highlight, Haus Bürgel - information point, museum, schnapps distillery, built on the walls of a Roman fort from the 4th century.

Behind Haus Bürgel we reach Father Rhine and walk along the promenade to reach Monheim am Rhein. The Piwipper Böötchen tempts you to take a short trip to the other side of the Rhine. Or rather hiss a beer in Monheim's old town on the Kölsch/Altbier border? We continue hiking through the bend in the Rhine (on the opposite side of the Rhine, Cologne greets you!) and end the stage at Gut Blee.

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.
