I moved my website from Opencart to Magento and also renamed all categories.

So now I do have a lot of broken links that I would like to redirect to their new categories.

For example I have : https://www.umweltfreunde.com/Wertstoffsammler-Abfalltrennsysteme/stahlblech-trenn-systeme

and now all links in the Wertstoffsammler-Abfalltrennsysteme/* should go to the new category : https://www.umweltfreunde.com/abfall-und-entsorgung/wertstoffsammler-und-abfalltrennsysteme

So I have about 5 old categories and hundreds of links under them that needs to redirect to the new category.

The older products are no longer in use, so I want to redirect the products to their category so the customer will see the category instead.

I think best option for you is from .htaccess file.

You can add these lines in your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
##comment upper 2 lines if these are already set in your htaccess
RewriteRule ^Wertstoffsammler-Abfalltrennsysteme/(.*) https://www.umweltfreunde.com/Wertstoffsammler-Abfalltrennsysteme/stahlblech-trenn-systeme/$1 [R=301,L]
