Bike Touring Highlight
The Himmelmannpark with the Fröndenberg funnel is right next door. The "high-performance funnel catcher" of the former Himmelmann paper mill was built in 1952 and is 14 meters high. The funnel was used to filter waste water from paper production to recover the fibers, glue and fillers.More information: baukunst-nrw.de/objekte/Froendenberger-Trichter--1929.htm

Here the Ruhr is already a very decent river. Upstream on the right is the Schwittener Kraftwerk, which can be visited on request. Down the river, the railway line crosses the Ruhr valley into the Hönnetal valley.
Incidentally, the Ruhr marks exactly the border between Menden and Fröndenberg and the border between the Märkischer Kreis and the district of Unna.
