    For cyclists, there is a new section on the König-Ludwig-Radweg at the KulturKanal! The energy company Uniper Heat realized this in cooperation with the Regionalverband Ruhr (RVR).

    In 1885, mining began in the south of Recklinghausen for the König Ludwig colliery, which is named after the Bavarian King Ludwig II. The fairy tale king who also built the famous Neuschwanstein Castle near Füssen. The first shaft was on today's Alte Grenzstrasse. In 1902, production started on the new IV / V mine in Suderwich. To the east of Suderwich, production began on the new third shaft VII / VIII at the beginning of the 1930s. We will even take a closer look at the locations on the tour in chronological order from I / II / VI through IV / V to VII / VIII. KLTThe König Ludwig colliery had a lasting effect on the cultural sector in the Ruhr area. After the Second World War, it supplied Hamburg theaters with coal for heating by bypassing the controls by the occupiers, which is why actors finally went to the Ruhr area to retaliate for a guest performance - the Ruhr Festival emerged from this action. At the end of the 1950s, the colliery was gradually closed in the wake of the general coal sales crisis. The colliery was shut down in 1965.The old colliery railway connecting the pits to the loading port on the Rhine-Herne Canal was expanded in sections to form a cycle path -the König-Ludwig-Trasse - KLTThe route, which is technically known as the railway cycle path, is around 9 kilometers long. The König-Ludwig-Trasse is signposted through the NRW cycle network. Rusty steel signs with the abbreviation KLT (see figure above) can be found here and there, e.g. in connection with information boards.See also the free Radrouterplaner NRW
