    Operational routes on the Dortmund-Ems Canal (section from the port of Dortmund to Schleusenpark Waltrop)The paths beyond the canal are popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists alike. Whether as part of a local walking tour, a long hike or a recreational bike ride, the canal trails offer excursions beyond the roads with great views of water and green landscape alternating with buildings and farms.Most sections of the company roads are easy to ride on with all bicycles and also invite cyclists who like to ride their bikes without great inclines and inclines.Also for hikers, the paths are often on to be included as part of a walk through the surrounding forests, fields and villages. In the warmer seasons, the canal with its paths is also a popular destination for recreation for families and invites you with meadows and green areas also for resting and sunbathing.

    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.
