    Operating routes on the Dortmund-Ems Canal (near Dortmund-Ellinghausen)

    The paths beyond the canal are popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists alike. Whether as part of a local walking tour, a long hike or a recreational bike ride, the canal trails offer excursions beyond the roads with great views of water and green landscape alternating with buildings and farms.

    Most sections of the company roads are easy to ride on with all bicycles and also invite cyclists who like to ride their bikes without great inclines and inclines.

    Even for hikers, the paths often offer to be included as part of a walk through the surrounding forests, fields and villages.

    In the warmer season, the canal with its paths is also a popular destination for recreation for families and invites with meadows and green strips for rest and sunbathing.

    The well-frequented operating route along the Dortmund-Ems canal leads from the ports of Dortmund to the boat lift to Henrichenburg.

    The entire cycle path along the canal has meanwhile become quite extended and bumpy.
    I recommend a well-sprung mountain bike here.
    I did not enjoy it :-(
