    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!

    Kettwig, located directly on the Ruhr, is today one of the southern districts of the city of Essen. The community Kettwig belonged until 1800 to the imperial abbey Werden. From 1800 to 1975 Kettwig was an independent city in the district of Mettmann with about 20,000 inhabitants. On January 1, 1975, the previously belonging to the district of Dusseldorf Kettwig was incorporated into the city of Essen; the westernmost Kettwig district Mintard fell to Mülheim an der Ruhr. Other parts went to Heiligenhaus and Ratingen.

    Kettwig is really beautiful. Lies on one of my favorite rounds: From Duisburg to Mülheim and through the Ruhr Valley to Kettwig and Essen. Back over the towpaths. Scenic just great
