Rowerowy, Czarny szlak turystyczny prowadzący od granic Gliwic przez Kozłów do Rachowic. Bliżej Gliwic szlak prowadzi polnymi drogami a za Kozłowem drogami przez las. Po przejechaniu ok. 2 km od leśniczówki Kozłów warto skręcić przy odnośnym drogowskazie w prawo i podjechać do pomnika ukrytego w lesie. Upamiętnia on doktora Juliusza Rogera - niemieckiego lekarza i przyrodnika, z zamiłowania etnologa oraz wybitnego działacza społecznego. Do Polski przyjechał w 1847 roku przyjmując posadę lekarza przybocznego księcia raciborskiego Wiktora I. Wkrótce otrzymał tytuł Królewskiego Radcy Sanitarnego. Oprócz leczenia rodziny książęcej swoją pracę dzielił między trzy ośrodki: Pilchowice, Rudy Raciborskie oraz Rybnik. Zainicjował w Rybniku budowę nowego szpitala. Poza leczeniem doktor Roger miał również dwie pasje: był przyrodnikiem i zbieraczem pieśni ludowych. Od miejscowej ludności nauczył się języka polskiego i zebrał 546 pieśni, które wydał po polsku w 1863 roku p.t. "Pieśni ludu polskiego w Górnym Szląsku". J. Roger był też zapalonym entomologiem - jego zbiór chrząszczy z terenu Górnego Śląska przyniósł mu uznanie środowisk naukowych. Zmarł nagle, w lesie, 7 stycznia 1865 roku w wieku 46 lat, a na miejscu śmierci wzniesiono ten pamiątkowy monument. Po dojechaniu do Rachowic warto zobaczyć drewniany kościół św. Trójcy z XV wieku oraz zabytkowy drewniany spichlerz dworski z 1 poł. XVII w.

It was mentioned as early as 1340, but we know that the building was burned down during the Hussite Wars. In the seventeenth century, it was replaced by a new shrine.

"The Museum of Sanitary Technology is the youngest museum in Gliwice. It was founded in 2005. It is located within premises of the Central Wastewater Treatment Plant, which until recently, was not a tourist attraction. In the renovated and stylish building of the pumping stations from the beginning of the last century, one can see some old sewage treatment equipment and a few decade old sanitary fittings, and afterwards, we can take a tour of the still operating plant, built for the twenty first century."

The history of the Gliwice parish church of the Holy Cross is connected to two orders. The Baroque church was built in the seventeenth century by the Franciscans, after the conflagration of the older church. It is worth emphasizing that after being rebuilt in the 1920s, the church was deprived of stylistic features. From that time on, to the present day, there has been a Redemptorist monastery, here. Inside the church, it is worthwhile to see old furnishings and a number of seventeenth-and eighteenth-century sculptures.
