1st day (Fri­day - ar­rival)
After your in­di­vidu­al ar­rival on Fri­day, you can col­lect the keys to your rooms in the four star Hotel Grä­frather Hof in Solin­gen Grä­frath (www.hotel-grae­frath­er­hof.de). Leave your every­day cares be­hind and get in the mood for your hik­ing trip with a three-course menu and soft drink or Grä­frather beer.

2nd day (Sat­urday)
After en­joy­ing your gen­er­ous buf­fet break­fast and trans­fer­ring your lug­gage to the hotel staff, you set off - with your packed lunch - on your first stage of the route, from Solin­gen Grä­frath to Solin­gen Burg. The path takes you past the Müng­sten Bridge, Ger­many’s highest rail­way bridge. Here, it’s worth tak­ing a de­tour to the Müng­sten Bridge park, dir­ectly un­der the Müng­sten Bridge, where you can use your entry vouch­er. From the ter­race of the “Haus Müng­sten” res­taur­ant, you have a spec­tac­u­lar view over the 115-year-old rail­way bridge. When you reach the Hotel Nigge­mann in Solin­gen Burg in the af­ter­noon, your lug­gage will already be wait­ing for you in your room.
Be­fore your pleas­ant 3-course menu in the even­ing, you might have time to vis­it the Schloss Burg palace, the an­ces­tral seat of the Counts of Berg. It sits majestic­ally in an im­press­ive loc­a­tion high up on the hill­top and houses the Ber­gisches Mu­seum, which in­vites you to take a fas­cin­at­ing jour­ney in time through the Middle Ages and presents in an au­then­t­ic way the his­tory of the Counts of Berg, who gave their name to the Ber­gisches Land re­gion.

3rd day (Sunday)
With fresh en­ergy after break­fast, and again tak­ing your packed lunch, you set out on the second hike, which takes you to Al­ten­berg. Lug­gage trans­fer is also ar­ranged to your next des­tin­a­tion, the Hotel Wißkirchen. You can en­joy a re­laxed hike through the fields and forests without any un­ne­ces­sary bag­gage.
There are vari­ous places to stop for a vis­it on the way, in­clud­ing the Gast­stätte Rüden­stein res­taur­ant with its idyll­ic loc­a­tion on the Wup­per river, where you can cash in your vouch­er.
Once you reach Al­ten­berg, you will have enough time to talk a walk through the town and vis­it Al­ten­berg cathed­ral.
Dur­ing the even­ing, you can re­lax with a two-course menu with loc­al Ber­gisches Land coun­try-style cuisine in the Hotel Wißkirchen.

4th day (Monday)
After break­fast, you will be taken back to the start­ing point of the tour in Solin­gen Grä­frath.
