Description

The climbing area of Bergisches Land is relatively young and there are still only a few opportunities to practice climbing. Climbing takes place predominantly in abandoned quarries. Bochumer Bruch near Mettmann and Isenberg near Hattingen are the most well-known. Another, smaller area is the Spreeler Mühle in Schwelm, which has about 10 unique routes.
Historically a part of the Dukedom Berg, the name is in honor of the Counts von Berg. The name sounds very similar to "Mountainous Land", but the geography and historical significance of the name make this obviously incorrect. Neverless, "mountain work" such as mining and quarrying has taken place here.

Getting There

The Bergische Land is bordered to the North by the Ruhr and to the West by the Cologne Lowland. To the South is the Sieg. To the East there is no real natural break but rather an unclear transition into the Sauerland.
Being in the developed country of Germany and next to the most densely populated region in Germany has the advantage of providing easy access to this area no matter your mode of motorized transport.
