Cycle routes in Engelskirchen

The cycle tours which pass the LVR-Industriemuseum in Engelskirchen require good physical condition. A short cycle tour on the well-signposted path from the Kraftwerk Ermen & Engels (Power Plant) to the Oelchenshammer (Forging Hammer) can be recommended. The more demanding Industrial Heritage Tour takes cyclists to the industrial beginnings in the Bergisches Land. In addition to the Eisenbahnmuseum (Railway Museum) in Dieringhausen and the Kraftwerk Ermen & Engels (Power Plant) the tour passes the Oberwiehler waterways, the Wiehler Tropfsteinhöhle (Stalactite Caves) or the castle-like lookout Derschlag, from where one has a splendid view over the Oberbergisches Land.
