Road Cycling Highlight
Here you roll over the Ruhr bridge in Essen Kettwig. Out of the city you are super fast in the countryside. The city of Kettwig is really worth a stop. Old half-timbered houses, winding streets and all sorts of opportunities to stop in any case to take a break. Food Kettwig is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the pot!
