The PanoramaRadweg niederbergbahn is a cycle path around 40 kilometers long, which leads from Heiligenhaus via Wülfrath and Velbert to Haan through the neanderland, the district of Mettmann. Despite the hilly landscape of neanderland, cycling on this cycle path is wonderfully relaxed. This is because the PanoramaRadweg niederbergbahn runs along a former railroad line that was built in the 1920s with a slight incline so that it could be used for passenger and freight transport.
Today, you can explore impressive examples of engineering from the last 100 years along the route and enjoy impressive views of the magnificent landscape. There is also the illuminated wagon bridge in Heiligenhaus, which is unique in Germany. The Abtsküche monument area in Heiligenhaus, St. Mary's Cathedral in Velbert, the time tunnel in Wülfrath and the village of Gruiten in Haan are also well worth a visit.
Nationally, the PanoramaRadweg niederbergbahn forms a link between the RuhrtalRadweg in Essen-Kettwig and the Korkenziehertrasse in Solingen and is therefore part of the 300 km long PanoramaRadweg network. Sports and leisure enthusiasts can cycle from the Ruhrgebiet via the Neanderland to the Sauerland. Thanks to its asphalted surface and width of 3 meters, the PanoramaRadweg niederbergbahn is largely barrier-free. This means that pedestrians, people with wheelchairs or walking aids and families with baby carriages can also experience the route and all its attractions.
