Bike Touring Highlight
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.

The Fröndenberger funnel is a "high-performance funnel catcher" of the former Papierfabrik Himmelmann. It was built in 1952 and is 14 meters high. The funnel was used for the filtration of waste water from paper production to recover the accumulated fiber, glue and fillers.More info: baukunst-nrw.de/objekte/Froendenberger-Trichter--1929.htm
