    The route from Essen-Borbeck to Altendorf serves as a connection to the Radschnellweg Ruhr RS1. The 2.5-kilometer side arm of the "Rheinische Bahn" is to be fully paved in the future, currently it is still rolling on a water-bound ceiling. Unfortunately, a sufficient amount of lighting is missing on a large section. Here only perforce helps the signal lighting of the adjacent railway line.

    On the way you pass the brewery Vampire in Borbeck. The beer garden is a nice place for a break, especially in summer ( A Borbecker steam beer is here a recommendation.

    The branch was once the connection to the railway line Essen-West to Essen-Dellwig East, one track each on both sides of the Rheinische Bahn. The bike path is located on the lower-lying route, which led out of town to Borbeck. At the time, a steel bridge in half-timbered style served as a bridge. The high route was shut down around 1950, the lower route was much longer in use.

    The Rhenish Railway is a great bike path that is suitable for everyone. Leads past many industry highlights

    The short connecting line between the Hp Borbeck and the former station Altendorf on the Rheinischen Bahn (NW 4.01) was developed as an access route of the Radschnellweg Ruhr.

    The station concourse is a real eye-catcher. Be sure to stop and go inside.
