20 green main paths invite you to stroll, take a relaxing stroll, run errands, go on a daily walk with the baby carriage, take part in health training or go on longer excursions in the metropolis and the surrounding area, largely without the annoyance and danger of car traffic. The route network of the 20 green main routes leads to the neighbouring district or to the nearest local recreation area, using the green corridors of the metropolis.
