    The canal is ideal for swimming and sunbathing in summer and is very popular due to its proximity to the city. The cycle path along the canal is a real highlight with beautiful views and little challenge. Have fun!

    The bike path along the canal is almost boring.

    In the urban area of ​​Münster-Hiltrup to the lock is the channel in good weather and weekend not recommended on both sides, is also partially dangerous because of many joggers, just as many, free-running dogs with uncomprehending owners, several laissez-faire-parents, the take care of their children to cyclists and all other users. In addition, the paths on both banks of the canal for the most part unpaved, often with coarse, solidly driven gravel occupied, in the middle of a sod, so that a side by side driving is almost impossible because of the frequent oncoming traffic.

    The more than 200 km long course is monotonous, not very varied, because the landscape, bank planting and dike design is mostly the same. I recommend rather the much more attractive and interesting Ems bike path -ab Münster.

    House Kamp with the oldest barn, restored. Sculpture path at the Aasee, e.g. with an extraordinary sculpture by H. Moore.
    The Werse cycle path: could there be more beautiful. In addition, a city in which cyclists have the right of way to drive from one nice cafe to the next.

    The Dortmund-Ems Canal connects the North Sea with the Ruhr area as an artificial waterway together with navigable sections of the Ems. Here the R1 crosses the channel. There is also a class bike path along the canal to the north.
