Hiking day at Rupprecht Consult


On May 4, most team members gathered for a hike in beautiful weather conditions.

At a train and bus ride from Cologne to the Bergisches Land, some got to see each other for the first time in "real life". The 12 km hike led through the woods and open fields, along small rivers, offered spectacular views of Cologne from afar and insights into the industrial history of the area (e.g. iron ore mining, chalk production, manyx mills along small streams).

Germany’s largest paper museum in the former Papiermühle Alte Dombach (Paper Mill) demonstrated how paper was once made, how it is made today and what one can make with this indispensable all-round talent. A mill wheel, a rag beater and a laboratory paper machine could all be seen in action. 

In the beautiful setting of the former commandry of the Maltese order, the team was finally rewarded with an aperitiv on the sunny terrace and a three-course dinner inside the restaurant before heading back to Cologne.
