    The HOAG route is the former railway line of the "Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft", hence the name. Like many other old railway lines, the approximately twelve-kilometer-long route connecting Oberhausen and Duisburg has been converted into a sizeable cycle path. Since 2007 you can cycle here from the Rhine port in Duisburg Walsum to Oberhausen Buschhausen.

    A nice way to extend the bike ride is the Green Path, which starts directly afterwards. About the old route you come back to Duisburg. A beautiful destination is, for example, the landscape park Duisburg Nord, which is located directly on the green path. The landscape park is one of many steel industry spots in the Ruhr area that has successfully made the transition to a cultural hotspot.

    The HOAG Bahntrasse is well worth a visit, especially since - with warm weather - here are sometimes trails with tree cover.

    Very pleasant to drive. No matter if gravel or asphalt. Both occur.

    Yes, nice to drive, but unfortunately nothing to make it easier, if you have to. 😞

    The railway line of the former Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft (HOAG) connects the Duisburg district of Walsum with Oberhausen Sterkrade. The HOAG route was originally used for coal transport from the Sterkrade colliery to the Rhine port in Walsum.

    Partly fresh split, which is harder to drive.

    The HOAG - route leads you on the shortest way to the Rhine. Glorious to drive undisturbed by cars. At the end of the HOAG - route you drive over the Roman road and ferry road to the ferry in Walsum. There you can cross the Rhine.

    A very nice, car-free route that I have driven several times.
    Interesting views of the city from this high-altitude former railway line. The remains of the former Sterkrade colliery with its mining tower are also very interesting.

    Super beautiful old industrial railway line expanded as a bike path.
    Car-free and almost free of intersections.
    But I would have preferred a continuously paved route.
