Anyone who has ever walked along the banks of the gentle Wupper River far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, explored the Balkan Route by bike or idly watched ships pass by on the banks of the Rhine in Hitdorf, knows exactly what we mean. Leverkusen is the green gateway to the Bergisches Land and yet lies “close to it all” between Cologne Cathedral and the Kö.
In Leverkusen, we love our little getaways in the hills and valleys of the Bergisches Land. Reservoirs, rivers and lakes provide revitalising surprises amidst the ups and downs of the landscape. Idyllic small villages with half-timbered or slate houses also offer opportunities for refreshments and overnight stays.
