    A really nice section on the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal. Varied, great to drive and run, with many places where sometimes great break in the sun can do.

    Service routes on the Dortmund-Ems Canal (section from the Dortmund harbor to the Waltrop lock park)

    The paths across the canal are popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists alike. Whether as part of a local walk, an extensive hike or a recreational bike ride, the canal paths offer excursions beyond the streets with a great view of the water and green landscape alternating with buildings and courtyards.

    Most of the sections of the service roads are easy to navigate with all bicycles and also invite cyclists who want to go outside by bike without steep inclines and declines.

    The paths are also often suitable for hikers, as they can be included as part of a hike through the surrounding forests, fields and towns also to relax and sunbathe.
