Alongside the Sieg

This tour is particularly well suited for families

This route leads you alongside the river Sieg following well accessible, very clearly laid out and almost exclusively level paths. The tour may be shortened accordingly, if you set out directly at the Mendener Straße / Siegstraße instead of at the castle Burg Wissem.

Sieg Ferry Crossing

In part, the route allows for relaxed and peaceful cycling on a paved river bank passing extensive fields with beautiful vistas across the Rhineland especially in nice weather. After approximately half the tour you have the option of crossing the Sieg aboard a small ferry to continue your cycle tour on the other bank.

The Aggua Public Swimming Pool

For those with a desire for more, this cycle tour can be combined with a visit to the leisure swimming pool Aggua Troisdorf, the wellness centre for body and soul. The Aggua offers a diverse range of attractions equally catering to the needs of children and adults:
Action on either of the two giant water slides, in the white water channel or on the tire slide, a quiet time in the relaxation pool with inbuilt benches for sitting, gushing spring and underwater massage facilities or a pampering time in the sauna area. Refreshments are available at several locations within the pool landscape.

  •  rest on a dike-bank along the Sieg river 
  •  The ferry across the river Sieg is docking 
  •  Old mill in Eschmar
