    The Ruhr reservoir lies between Bochum and Witten, so to speak at the foot of the Ruhruni Bochum. He is a popular destination of the inhabitants of Bochum and the surrounding area. Meanwhile, there are three paved paths around the lake for those seeking relaxation. One for pedestrians, one for inline skaters and one for cyclists. Mostly it works;) By the way, a round around the lake is about eight kilometers long.

    It is most beautiful here but no doubt in the early morning hours, then you can really enjoy the peace and let the bike run. And so a sunrise on the lake is always something very beautiful. The "culinary" tip on the lake: The parking lots have been the same ice cream truck for years, refreshing you with delicious ice cream in summer.

    A nice viewpoint - especially in the morning, when there are still a few people on the way. There you can watch the wildlife in peace.

    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 places "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 round 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.

    Separate well-developed paths lead around the lake for cyclists, skaters and pedestrians. This makes it very safe for children. There are many ways to have a picnic. The sunset is also impressive.
