Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The cycle path on the Rhine-Herne Canal is part of the "Route of Industrial Culture". This section is the “Emscher Park Cycle Path”, which is part of a 230-kilometer circular route, the “Main Culture Canal”. You can linger on these paths for a while and there is a lot to see around the canal. The ships, of course. But also the industry around it or the interesting lock systems that you cross over and over again by bike.
The paths here are easy to drive on, but for the most part not asphalted. Still feasible with a racing bike (although the seven kilogram racing file with 23 tires is probably not the ideal vehicle). Of course, this route is quite popular. If you like to have free travel, it is advisable to start early.

nice to drive - but especially in nice weather many pedestrians and other bicycles.

Very nice to drive, even in summer because trees provide a lot of shade.
Sometimes you have to leave the path to change the canal side, but these are mostly only short distances over the bridges. Most of the time, obstacles such as port areas or power plant areas have to be avoided.

Very easy to navigate but always something going on. Pedestrians and cyclists

The cycle paths on the Rhine Herne Canal are almost all gravel and are actually getting better from year to year. But you are not immune to puddles and holes. Depending on the weather, other people may also feel the need to be there ...

Driving along the canal is always interesting. Unfortunately the path is not in the best condition everywhere, there is still room for improvement. Be careful with the underpasses, as it is usually quite narrow and without insight.

Beautiful signposted path on a smooth gravel road. Be careful: I cannot recommend the parallel Emscher cycle path. The landscape is not attractive.

A trip along the canal is always like a little holiday.

Every minute on the canal is like a short vacation.
You can really unwind there.

It's always fun to cycle along the Rhine-Herne Canal. Individual sections are constantly being built. Usually the other side of the canal or the cycle path on the Emscher is available as an alternative. In places, the path along the canal is relatively narrow and could be improved.

It's about a cycle path on the Rhine-Herne Canal, which is recommended as a highlight for cyclists. Further details about the exact section of the cycle path are not given. aetna-medicare.org
