While I think the town of Schwerte doesn’t quite live up to its reputation as a “well-preserved old-town,” it sits above one of the prettier parts of the Ruhr valley. The heights here are full of forested vales, gullies, and dramatic viewpoints.
How to Get Here:
- The hike starts at the Fröndenberg train station in the Ruhr. It ends in the central station in Schwerte.
