Tips

    Simply always nice along the Ruhr. Completely car-free and relaxed. It gets a little busier with walkers at the weekend, but it's a delight to drive around in the evening during the week.

    I like it most in the cold months. The light is then overwhelming and by the way it is also much emptier

    Great part of the Ruhrtalradwegs! Entry into Kettwig at the bridge, end in Werden, where you have to change sides, if you want to continue to Baldeneysee.

    Be careful in Kettwig after the railway bridge! Here the lane is divided into a pedestrian and a cycle path (marked with mandatory signs!) But there are a lot of cars driving over it ?? away, looking for parking! Sometimes dangerous situations! Two of us drove in a row in the last week and were both cleared away with a hit-and-run! My buddy then lay on the hood of a parked car, goddamn it, nothing happened except quite a shock. No witnesses, no law enforcement officers to see!
    So watch out for yourself!

    A break at the paper mill lock is worthwhile.

    Well developed, although about a narrow path right on the river. Avoid in good weather because full!

    Right on the towpath on the Ruhr and still a place of rest. Pleasant point for a short rest.

    Especially in the morning, when the fog is still on the Ruhr, it is especially nice.

    The Old Ferry in Essen-Kettwig in front of the bridge offers a great view over the Ruhr over to Kettwiger church hill. On the way along the Ruhr to Baldeneysee are a few more places to rest.

    Hard to believe that this green and recreation-focused stretch of the Ruhr river was the birthplace of the coal & steel industrial revolution just a couple of hundred years ago.

    A wonderful route for cycling and at the same time recovering.

    Fantastic cycling right on the water on a former towpath (also known as a towpath). Where early horses laboriously pulled the barges up the Ruhr, today we cycle relaxed through beautiful nature.

    Great route directly on the Ruhr, no matter how around you drive: from Essen-Werden to Kettwig or in the other direction. Leads along the Kettwig reservoir. Beautiful to drive, maybe not for those who eat the kilometers and choose their routes so that they can achieve the highest possible cut.
    For everyone else: a dream!

    In principle, the most beautiful, since the only way directly on this section of the Ruhr. Unfortunately mostly overrun and apparently there were still cobblestones on offer, because otherwise I can't explain these totally annoying transverse joints every 100m ... (from Kettwig they stop at least).

    So-called close to nature, a lot to see and discover, unfortunately quite full on nice days, fields meadows and the Ruhr again and again
