    Eating Kettwig old town with flair. The mill ditch has postcard character.

    Entrance to the small, picturesque old town. Right next to the Kettwiger Ruhr reservoir. Eiscafes around the corner. Pedal boat continue for 2 minutes.

    The Mühlengrabenbrücke was built in 1786 under the Werden abbot Bernhard Bierbaum from Ruhr sandstone. The coat of arms of the Abts can still be seen in the middle bridge arch today. The bridge ended on the bleaching island (today green area). From there you took the ferry for the bridge over. The Mühlengraben was an important arm of the Ruhr, where the Kettwiger grain mill lay in the Middle Ages. 1724 was built a fulling mill for the use of water power for the cloth making. The last signs of water use are the Scheidt turbine house from 1901 and the steam power plant built at the same time.
