Hike through the scenic Wurm valley near Aachen with an excursion to Berensberg with castle and view. The hike is moderate with some steep ascent and descent but mostly easy-going paths and unpaved roads. There was some storm damage in the forest. You can find something to eat and drink at the Teuterhof. Limited parking is available at the start. Alternatively, you could start for example at the Teuterhof or Berensberg.
From the parking at Kaisersruh you walk past some ponds, and then take a path which crosses the Meisbach at a ford. You then follow smaller paths winding up the forested sides of the Kahlenberg. A bit further you go down again, to the Wurm valley near Wolfsfurth, only to almost directly go up again on the Kahlenberg. Now you continue onto the pasture on top of the hill towards the sport center. From here you take a path that follows the Wurm valley at some height, affording nice views of the valley and nearby Scherberg. After a while you take a path down to the valley at Adamsmühle. Down you take a path through a nice beech forest on a slope. If you are back down near the Adamsmühle, you follow this field road to the Teuterhof on the Schweilbacher Strasse, near a riding school. Here you cross the Wurm, and turn back on the other side, directly taking a path up the forested slope of the hill. In this section, quite some trees had recently fallen (storm damage?), affording some views, but also deserving some caution. After a while you descend again to the forest road on the valley floor and you follow this path on the edge of the forest and the pasture surrounding the Wurm. Past Adamsmühle on the other side, you turn right and uphill through the Wiedbusch forest, also with views due to logging and/or storm damage. When you reach the edge of the forest on the plateau, you follow the field road to the edge of Rumpen village. You cross the village, take the field road Luhrweg, and then the field road Aachener Pfad with cobblestones towards Berensberg castle. You walk around Berensberg castle and the St. Matthias church, cross the road and walk through pasture to a viewpoint on the edge of Berensberg in a recreation park. This viewpoint offers a wide view towards Aachen, with the Lousberg, the tripoint in the distance. You return back to Berensberg and then follow a path down to the Wurm through the Paulinenwäldchen. Back in the Wurm valley, you continue to the bridge near Wolfsfurth and the continue on the Kütgensallee back to the starting point.
