    Here the bike path leads directly along the canal bank. Many bridges cross at short intervals and connect the section with Bottrop, Oberhausen and Essen.

    The 10 Halden-Weg is a beautiful "Ruhrgebiet experience" and driving on the Haniel heap is a true experience

    The path along the canal is simply recommended. Great view of the sorcerer's apprentice guaranteed

    Cycling on the canal always works. It is cleaner than you might expect. If the water in the sun is turquoise, then real recovery comes up.

    - a wonderful - magical place - to linger a short time - or even to an extended picnic -

    you don't believe how fast you cycled from GE to OB or to Duisburg.

    Driving along the canal is very nice on the one hand, but cycling is massively impaired by the poor road surface in many places. Often the fine layer is missing, so that many pointed gravel stones protrude from the surface. Likewise, the surface is uneven in many places and you are "shaken". Those who want to cycle comfortably will certainly not be bothered by these shortcomings. But at a speed of more than 18 or 19 km / h cycling (pedelec) is no longer fun.
