Traversing the Wahner Heide

This cross-country tour is particularly well suited for people wishing to spend a day outdoors on their bicycle.

The route begins at the castle Burg Wissem. Departing from here, you cycle along the so-called Mauspfad and Eisenweg paths traversing the Wahner Heide Conservation Area leading to the Altenrath district. This is a convenient location for a break and refreshments if needed.

The route follows forest paths, which must be kept to as this is a conservation area. It features a few moderate ascending slopes. In order to fully enjoy this tour, a mountain bike or at least a bicycle equipped for cross-country cycling is required. This route follows almost exclusively traffic-free paths.
