Bike Touring Highlight
The Ruhr reservoir lies between Bochum and Witten, so to speak, at the foot of the Ruhruni Bochum. It is a popular destination for the residents of Bochum and the surrounding area. There are now three asphalt paths around the lake for those looking for relaxation. One for pedestrians, one for inline skaters and one for cyclists. Most of the time it works. ;) By the way, a lap around the lake is about eight kilometers long.
It is most beautiful here but without a doubt in the early morning hours, then you can really enjoy the peace and quiet and let the bike run. And such a sunrise at the lake is always something particularly beautiful. The “culinary” tip at the lake: The same ice cream truck has been standing by the parking lots for years and refreshes you with delicious ice cream in summer.

The Kemmnader reservoir; The recreational area of Bochum and the surrounding area has been attracting hikers, inline skaters and cyclists in droves for years.
Therefore, years ago, separate paths for the three groups were built, which extend down to a few bottlenecks around the lake. Nevertheless, it is extremely crowded here, especially in good weather.
At various points, "meals" are established; everything is available from the shack to the good restaurant.
There are also several playgrounds available, so you can drink a coffee in peace, while the little ones make the playground unsafe.
And if the lap is too long, you can shorten the round with the passenger ship.
All you have to do is make sure that there are two ships; one drives only on the lake, the other drives up the Ruhr.
Those arriving by car use one of the three parking lots, the largest being Heveney Harbor.

Lake Kemnader lies between Witten and Bochum and is a popular local recreation area. Unfortunately, when the weather is nice, it is completely overflowing, which has led to the fact that there are now three paved lanes: for pedestrians, for inline skaters and for cyclists. In the area of gastronomy there are two or three good places to stop. A lap around the reservoir is about 10-12 km.
