Sommerspaziergang Romantik Waldhotel Mangold

The starting point is our hotel in Milchborntal. We go right to the east on the Kadettenweiher path passing the outdoor pool Milchborntal, the sport court and finally come to the cadets pond.

At the cadets pond we go right and take the first road left that's going towards the "ring barrier". Here we see the earth ramparts, who had served as defense lines of the former castle ground. On the left side we descend to the «Jungfrauenweiher» (virgin pond), go right around the ring barrier and back to the cadets pond. Background: 1840 to 1918 in Schloss Bensberg housed a military academy. The pond was created by Prussian officials to teach the cadets how to swim. Only a few hundred meters away is the "virgin pond", which owes its name to the neighboring mine virgin.

We are passing the cadets pond on the left hand. At the end of the pond we turn left and climb up a bridle path. At the top, we encounter a road which we cross and go straight down to the refuge to the Naturfreudehaus Hardt.

At the end of the building, we go right down hill, passing the playground and run into a small square at the end, we cross the "Lerbach" and follow the path upwards until you reach a crossroad. Here we turn left until we encounter a crosscut. Here we turn right and immediately left again after 100 meters. After about 40 meters we reach a road. Here we turn left and follow the footpath parallel to the highway. On the way you have a great view over the bay of Cologne.

On the left we see a timber-framed chapel, fringed by big old trees, where we turn left and take the meadow, which leads us to Kaltenbroich. Once at the bottom we turn right to Lerbacher path.

Background: The Rochus chapel was built in 1684 by Baron von Lerbach to protect against the plague.
