    The service routes on both sides of the canal around the Herner Meer are great for riding with MTB and trekking bikes. Great opportunities for local recreation and a good section for cycling and hiking tours.

    "The sculpture reemrenreh is one of two parts of a joint work by the sculptor Bogomir Ecker and the composer Bülent Kullukcu, which was created for the major exhibition EMSCHERKUNST.2010.
    Ecker's sculpture will remain installed in Herne beyond the three-month duration of the exhibition. Reemrenreh (hardly any singing) consists of three parts: a street lamp and two tower-like sculptures. The 16 meter high street lamp illuminates the other two parts of the sculpture at night and is naturally placed in the middle of the water - in the Herner Meer. The resulting enraptured, surreal effect is underlined by the fact that the oversized lantern does not serve as a yardstick, cannot help to clarify the proportions. The largest, yellow part of the ensemble easily towers above it by seven meters; the third, smallest part looks tiny at just under eight meters. The two "towers" next to the lantern are reminiscent of building blocks

    The operating routes on the canal on both sides of the Herne Meer are great to ride on MTB and trekking bikes. Prima recreation and good section for cycling and hiking tours.

    A quiet route without traffic, with a relaxed break at the lock.

    The area of water above the Herne-Ost lock, which widens towards the lock's outer harbor, is known as the Herner Meer. It is approximately 500 meters long and 250 meters wide and extends from the last pier at the outer harbor to the AMC Castrop-Rauxel. The Herner Meer is a popular local recreation area and the location of the EMSCHERKUNST steel sculpture Reemrenreh by the sculptor Bogomir Ecker.

    It is worth taking a short photo stop here to marvel at the "Käsestange", actually "Reemrenreh" by the Düsseldorf artist B. Ecker on the opposite side of the canal. It belongs to the Emscherkunst. In general, the section on the canal dike is very impressive in itself, as it is several meters high here. On the right the canal and on the left it goes really deep down.
