    Kettwig is not the only beautiful city that you drive through on the Ruhrtal cycle path. But she is definitely beautiful. The historic old town is idyllically situated on the Ruhr. If you feel like it, Kettwig is definitely the ideal place for a coffee or a snack.

    There is in the old town a small very good ice cream parlor, recommended and known among "cyclists" 👍🏻

    The historic old town is beautiful if you like the old half-timbered houses and the narrow streets.

    Kettwig, located directly on the Ruhr, is today one of the southern districts of the city of Essen. The community Kettwig belonged until 1800 to the imperial abbey Werden. From 1800 to 1975 Kettwig was an independent city in the district of Mettmann with about 20,000 inhabitants. On January 1, 1975, the previously belonging to the district of Dusseldorf Kettwig was incorporated into the city of Essen; the westernmost Kettwig district Mintard fell to Mülheim an der Ruhr. Other parts went to Heiligenhaus and Ratingen.

    Always worth a visit.
    Especially if not too many excursionists are on the way.

    Kettwig is always worth a stopover for longer tours to strengthen.

    From here you can get from / to the Panorama - Radweg, from / to Essen, from / to Mülheim and for MTB drivers it's fast to the Mintarder forest.
    Hugenpott Castle is also not far away.

    Surely many "outsiders" will be surprised to find such a gem in the Ruhr area. On nice weekends a bit crowded. But also a sign of the attractiveness of the place. Good ice cream parlor directly at the entrance of the Ruhr coming.
