Hengsteysee - run-of-river power plant Hengstey near Herdecke / Hagen-BoeleThe Hengstey run-of-river power station is a hydroelectric power station at the end of the Hengsteysee in the course of the Ruhr, exactly at the city boundary between Herdecke and Hagen in North Rhine-Westphalia; The power plant building is located on the Hagener side.The run-of-river power plant was realized as a combination plant with a roller weir in the 1920s. After the construction of the Ruhr water was then dammed to Hengsteysee. Since then, the river water and the height difference of about 4.6 m provide the continuous basis for regenerative power generation.For hikers, runners and cyclists there is the opportunity to cross the Ruhr here directly over a pedestrian bridge at the power plant between Herdecke and Hagen. From here you have a great view of the roller weir and the Kaplan turbine houses. As on many bridges, the fashion of the "love castles" has not stopped, now decorate the bridge. Care is required for cyclists on the central tracks.

Good starting point for a tour around the Hengsteysee with bridge, fish ladder and restaurant. Unfortunately, the bridge is to be demolished because the operator no longer needs it. The cities of Herdecke and Hagen are committed to maintaining the transition.

Nice view of the Ruhr and interesting bridge construction.
If you love your bike, you can push here. Deep rails are embedded in the wooden floor construction.
Experienced cyclists can certainly cycle carefully over the bridge when there is little traffic ;-)
