Siegen, Germany (Worth staying??)

Jump to last reply

I may have an opportunity to visit Siegen, Germany towards the end of March thru first week in April 2013, coming from the USA. I’m looking for things to do in and around the area, i.e., day trips. Would I be able to hike in this area? I won’t have a car and plan to take public transportation, trains and buses. In doing some research it appears that the nearest cities are Hagen (located 51 miles to the north), Koblenx (65 miles southwest) and Cologne (57 miles west). Are these cities worth a day trip and what kinds of public transportation can I take to get to there? It there enough to see and do in Siegen?

I know the weather can (cold) be a factor since we can’t predict the weather during this time of year and this is okay as I will just have to dress appropriately. On the other hand, I’ve been to Italy a few times around the same time and was blessed with truly amazing weather. Would prefer to be based in this area only and do day trips as I don’t like to move around too much and just concentrate on one area only when traveling especially for such a short trip. I will have accommodations.
