7/2/2017 Hiking from Kaldenkirchen to Venlo
Hey guys! How's it going? Still the days are so long. Why not going a little bit far away? This time, I decided to organize a hike from Kaldenkirchen to Venlo, which means that we're gonna cross the border to the Netherlands!
The plan is quite simple: if you live near Düsseldorf (or have to come to Düsseldorf to take a train), we can see each other in front of Düsseldorf Hbf at 10:30. Then we'll take the RE13 up to Kaldenkirchen. It takes quite some time from Düsseldorf, but at least we don't have to change train. If you live near Kaldenkirchen, you can directly be there at 11:50, because that's when our train is gonna arrive there. By the way, Venlo is still somehow within the German railway networ too so the ticket back home should not be expensive (or for free if you have a Ticket 2000 or a Semesterticket).
Then we'll walk according to the map above. By the way, I have never been there myself before (the suggestion comes from this site), so we will discover the are together. By the way, even though I decided to call it a hike, it's probably VERY flat, although I guess the landscape is quite beautiful.
We'll probably stop somewhere to picnic on the way. Maybe it would be nice if you could bring a picnic blanket.
The event is also organized on CS, and this time I also put it on Facebook, as I'm not sure if those who live far away (like Dortmund or Köln) can see the post. You do not have to sign up there to participate, but it might be important to let me know because I will send my phone number to the participants in the previous evening and create a WhatsApp group. Even if you sign up but decide not to come in the end, you can simply take French leave and you do not have to apologize for that. Of course, you can simply decide in the last moment and turn up in time.
Regardless of the weather, I will NOT cancel the event, so please check it out yourselves and decide whether to come or not yourselves.
Hope to see you there!
