Tips

  • Oliver

    In the summer of 2003, the new coking plant at Schwelgernhafen went into operation and the rising steam of coke quenching has since become a favorite motif for amateur and professional photographers.

    Nice view. The path is gravelly bogged down, isolated potholes. Connection to the continuation via Rheindeich Beckerwerth, to the cycle paths along the Ruhr or the Rhein-Herne-Kanal along only possible via road.

    If you sit down on one of the many park benches along the way, you can really feel the earth shaking on weekdays, that's heavy industry! At the same time one looks out over the Rhine and sometimes even hears the announcements in the plant such as "All employees please come to the canteen immediately!". So here you really get into industrial contact.

    Why is it so beautiful on the Rhine???
    To find out for yourself, all you have to do is ride this wonderful cycle path on the Rheindamm!
    Every meter on the dam is like a piece of vacation.

    I would also include Duisburg Homberg for other tours, it is of no use to me if only Oberhausen and Herne are mentioned

    Industry and nature are sometimes very close to one another, nowhere is this more noticeable than on the Rhine near Duisburg.

    There's an interesting mix here. On one side the halls of heavy industry and on the other green shore areas where walkers and dog owners with their animals
    cavort Behind him is Father Rhine, who flows calmly and unimpressed.

    On the tour from Walsum on the right bank of the Rhine, you partly follow the "Industrial Culture Route". Past, among other things, the huge Thyssen-Krupp industrial complex. Impressive.

    It's all pretty overgrown, but you have a view in 2 places and the driveway is steep but doable.
    You can ignore the pedestrian sign when there are few people around
