Cycling by Numbers: Radeln nach Zahlen

The cycling path network in the Saarland and Siegerland-Wittgenstein regions is based on a honeycomb structure.  The corner points of each honeycomb has so-called "junctions" that interlink the honeycombs. When you are at a junction you are offered various directions. All the junctions have a number and in this way - even without a map - you will not get lost.


In order to cycle the Lenne route you would have to follow  these junction numbers, in the same order:

56 – 57 – 47 – 52 – 39 – 37 – 41 – 46 – 47 – 48 – 50 – 51 – 45 – 64 – 63 - 59 – 57 – 58 – 56 

Start: Winterberg Bahnhof / Destination: Hagen-Hohenlimburg
