    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.

    "The sculpture reemrenreh is one of two parts of a joint work of the sculptor Bogomir Ecker and the composer Bülent Kullukcu, which was created for the major exhibition EMSCHERKUNST.2010.
    The sculpture by Ecker will be installed in Herne beyond the three-month duration of the exhibition. Reemrenreh (barely 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, of course, placed in the middle of the water - in the Herne Meer. The resulting surreal, surreal effect is underlined by the fact that the oversized lantern does not serve as a benchmark, can not help to clarify the proportions. It is dominated by the largest, yellow part of the ensemble play by seven meters; the third, smallest part, on the other hand, looks tiny with its almost eight meters in height. The two "towers" next to the lantern are reminiscent of building bricks

    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.
