Stage 15: Langenfeld-Reusrath - Solingen



18,12 km long
regional hiking trail
Very varied, not very easy stage. The path leads from flat heath landscapes to the Leichlinger Sandberge and on through forests and meadows to Solingen, the city of blades.

Langenfeld-Reusrath to Solingen

From Reusrath, we first walk more or less parallel to Europe's No. 1 traffic artery, the BAB A3, which we finally cross at the Further Moor nature reserve. Behind the Naturfreundehaus Leichlingen we hike for a while over the beautiful Langenfelder Sandberge, then through the Leichlinger Sandberge, that's dune fun in the middle of the Rhineland.

Behind the hotel "Haus Gravenberg" we walk along the nudist club of Solingen, which attracts with the motto "Who comes, stays". Behind the former excursion restaurant "Schwanenmühle" we pass the picture-perfect village of Krüdersheide before we head to the "real" heath: the Ohligser Heide nature reserve.

At the Engelsberger Hof leisure facility we can enjoy the park, the stop at the Schlesische Schänke and a gigantic playground - if we have kept the child in us. At the St. Lukas Hospital in Solingen we reach the stage destination.

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.
