    A popular destination for cyclists and inline skaters, hikers and joggers, sailors and surfers is the Kemnader lake on the city boundary between Bochum, Witten and Hattingen. A large (10 kilometers) and a small (8.3 kilometers) circuit offer great views of one of the most beautiful reservoirs in the Ruhrgebiet

    The longest distance around the Kemnader lake leads over the lake bridge and amounts to approx. 10 km; The shortest route runs under the motorway bridge and is about 8.3 km.
    The "RUHR-IN-LINE" skating rink, a 10-kilometer circuit, makes the popular destination Kemnader See even more attractive.The train, which was built separately from the existing cycling and hiking trail, is open daily from sundown to approx. Illuminated at 11 pm

    At Wohenende is often overcrowded because the Bochum and Witten are here active.
