The Lignite Experience

Welcome to Rhein-Erft County

An excursion or a weekend trip to the region along the Rhine and Erft rivers offers well-developed bike and hiking trails to those who wish to be active and do some sightseeing as well. Golfers, climbers and kayakers also find varied opportunities. Adventurers can experience Phantasialand and the Michael Schumacher Kart & Event Center, and art and culture lovers have more than 50 castles and palaces, museums, events, wind and water mills and historic towns waiting to be discovered.
The recultivated areas in the Rhenish lignite mining area and a panoramic view from one of the viewing platforms into the huge surface mining pits and the bucket wheel excavators will impress you in their own way.
