Since 1995 the Association for Town Marketing of Wetter ("Stadtmarketing f√ľr Wetter e.V.") works for the presentation of the location Wetter and the systematic prestige advertising as well as for improving the attractiveness of the town of Wetter (Ruhr) for citizens of Wetter (Ruhr), citizens of the surrounding area as well as resident and interested companies. The association wants to contribute by ideological, material and / or financial support for appropriate events in cultural, sporting, economic, social and / or environmental fields. The association can also achieve these purposes by implementing appropriate procedures (eg. planning and guidance documents, publications and related services).


Route of the three villages - Esborn

The circular route:



At the  signpost, we turn left to the road  Am B√∂llberg. From here we have a wonderful view over the Ruhr valley to the Ardey Mountains. We go to the right and after the curve turn  left over a small parking lot down a narrow path through the forest and bushes until we come along an old stone wall to the  Esborner Stra√üe (L527). We go right and immediately left into the street  An der Heile. From there, we continue straight on along the path  Am H√∂dey through the forest up to the  Vo√üh√∂fener Stra√üe. In the forest, we have beautiful views of fields and meadows on the right. At the "Vo√üh√∂fener Stra√üe" we turn left and after the bus stop turn left again into the street  Am Storch. Before the transformer haus Vo√üh√∂fen we  turn right and walk up a dirt road through meadows and pass through the beautiful, old beech forest at H√∂streichberg (234 m above sea level). Even before entering the forest we have behind us a beautiful view of Vo√üh√∂fen, Grundsch√∂ttel and Silschede. When we have crossed the forest – we are now on the road  An der Heile – there is a round view of Bommerholz, Witten, the house Malinckrodt, the hospital Herdecke and a little further on the old slender chimney of the Cuno power plant. We follow the road "An der Heile" past an old house with a drawing fountain and the large house number 145 to the junction  Ruhrh√∂henweg (connection to the circular path Vo√üh√∂fen).

We turn to the left with a nice view over the Ruhr valley until we walk left into the street  Im K√ľhlen Grunde. It goes past old half-timbered houses and a large farmhouse from 1840 with a quarry stone barn, where on the corner stone beside the initials of the builders the year 1857 can be seen. Continue down the beech grove to  Schmiedestra√üe (L 527). Here we turn right towards Wengern and after about 300 m  turn left into the forest. Over fields and meadows, a beautiful view opens to a wide valley and the "H√∂streich" mountain. At the end of the dirt road, we continue straight ahead over the road  Am Meseb√ľschken, past  women's house Wengern and follow the signs to the  naturefriends house Eggeklause (naturefriends house Eggeklause). Just before entering the forest, we have a wonderful view into a long valley that runs parallel to the street  Am Flachsteich.

Behind the Eggeklause we keep to the right and walk down the  forest path at a barrier. After approximately 800 m, we turn  sharply to the left and follow the forest path that runs parallel to the closed railway track Witten-Wuppertal. The trail continues past a meadow, to the right over a small  stream, then up in the forest to the road  Im Brunsberg. Turn left, then turn right into the small street  Am Flachsteich with some beautiful houses. On the left, a narrow path passes the AVU-10 KV station up through the forest to our starting point,  the B√∂llberg parking lot.
