Hiking in Essen

Kett­wiger Pa­no­ra­ma­steig

This trail really lives up to its name: on a route comprising around 35 kilometres, the Kettwiger Panoramasteig offers unique panoramic views along the Ruhr and an entirely unique nature experience, whilst being right in the middle of the city of Essen.

The landscape along the trail is varied: those hiking the trail to the north of the Ruhr will pass through steep forests, as well as go past large fields and along urban residential settlements. To the south of the blue Ruhr, those walking on the trail will alternate between forests and agricultural areas. There is not only lots of green space and nature along the trail for people who love walking but also interesting sights to discover. In addition, there are lots of places to stop off for refreshments.
