Cycle along the Korkenziehertrasse (corkscrew line) through Solingen

Explore Solingen pleasantly by bicycle. The Korkenziehertrasse (corkscrew line) makes it possible. Like a green ribbon, it winds through the city district. Surrounded by trees and so much green.

Cycling with non-stop panoramic views. Again and again, unusual views of the varied landscape open up.

The cycle trail along the sweeping railway line is easy to conquer. And almost completely gradient-free. Ideal for an excursion with children too.

Along the way, there are lots of destinations that will make you want to stop. Just park your bicycle for a while. For example Südpark Solingen around Solingen’s old main station. There, Museum Plagiarius also offers young visitors some exciting insights.

You can also take a lovely break in the historic old town of Gräfrath. Strolling around here is simply great fun.
