    Here it is worth to get off the bike and listen to the sound of the Ruhr for a while. Two small but wide steps ensure that the water of the Ruhr falls from one basin to the next at this point. The waterfalls provide a beautiful backdrop for a little rest.

    Turn off the bike, close your eyes, hear the noise and you're on vacation!

    At the weir in Hattingen you can have a good break and watch water sports.
    The weir is not a waterfall, but an artificially created barrage to use the water power in the neighboring Birschelmühle. There is also the old lock, which is still functional, a boat slide and a fish ladder.
    Opposite the weir is the Landhaus Grum, which offers both a beer garden and a place for celebrations.

    A waterfall in the middle of the Ruhrpott?Yes there is. Not exactly the Niagara Falls, but quite impressive.The way turns off, but you can also drive straight on past the hotel.
    There then waits a nice beer garden.

    Here you can "breathe" the Ruhr due to the cases.

    This bridge must always be crossed, if one drives the Ruhrtalradweg. For this one drives on the north bank a loop and follows the course of the road, on the south bank was a section with small bends for the cyclists set up. The bridge itself has several bays where you can bike and enjoy the view of the Ruhr.

    Great landscape. There is always something going on, cyclists, hikers, canoeists.

    Hattingen offers a great section of the Ruhr, but also the mill or the nearby Henrichshütte. Without them, the course of the Ruhr would be different!

    A breather at the weir is always reassuring. More benches would be even better.

    Marking this point on the towpath in Hattingen with the city of Hattingen is questionable for me as a Hattinger, as you did not experience passing Hattingen.
    If you look at the highlight but not from Hattinger point of view, but on a regional level, it makes perfect sense.
    The Ruhrtalradweg leads past here, so the inclined cyclist proudly calls Hattingen as a highlight of his route.
    Nevertheless, the good advice to those passing through, at least an hour for the historic old town to treat.

    Very nice place on the bike path to take a break and watch the canoeists at the "boat slides".

    Cross the bike bridge here to continue along the Ruhr Bike Trail and marvel at the view from high above the river

    Like a waterfall, the Ruhr flows one floor down here.

    Very nice view of the weir. From the bridge, you can watch the canoeists go "down the boat".

    Very nice view of the weir. Linger here and watch the canoeists at the "boat slip" from the bridge.
