The Nutscheid is a range of hills between the Sieg river to the south and the Bröl to the north, forming the heart of the largest continuous forested area in the Bergisches Land.
The Nutscheidhöhenweg (Nutscheid Hill Trail) connects the towns of Waldbröl and Hennef. The route runs along extensive former trading routes along the ridge of the Nutscheid forested area. If you begin your cycling tour to the west, a short but steep climb by road from the Sieg valley to the ridge is necessary. One you have reached the top, the route runs along quiet agricultural roads with no big climbs through the forest. Because the route runs along the ridge, no valley recesses have to be overcome along the way, so overall the altitude profile is classified as easy.
Naturerlebnispark Panarbora, which opened in autumn 2014 on the outskirts of Waldbröl, offers visitors a tree hotel and a treetop walkway as well as thrilling views over the Bergisches Land.
In addition to this, cultural highlights like the pilgrimage site of Bödingen and the former place of execution of Windecker High Court can also be visited along the way.
