    The railway line built at the beginning of the 20th century connected the Rhine-Herne Canal with the blast furnaces of the Bochum association and served to supply iron ore. Today, the track is consistently developed as a paved bike path and connects the Bochum West Park with the zoo "Zoom" in Gelsenkirchen on the Rhine-Herne Canal.

    Hello. As far as I know the Erzbahntrasse and drive, it is mostly asphalted and very passable.

    The track is also suitable for inline skating, but on fine days only in the morning until 10 o'clock & in the evening from 20 o'clock.

    Beautiful bicycle route from the Rhine Herne Canal (Grimberger sickle) to the Jahhunderthalle in Bochum. But not necessarily continuously from Asphaltierter surface.

    A nice, well-developed bike path. Off the road you drive with good views of the area.

    The Erzbahntrasse leads from Gelsenkirchen over Herne to Bochum over 18 bridges and is one of the most beautiful bike paths in the Ruhr area.

    The Erzbahntrasse is a great bike path on the old railway line. It leads from the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum West Park to Gelsenkirchen and is 9 km long.
    This highlight marks only the entrance to the Erzbahnschwinge and not the whole route.

    For skating I find the track annoying, because often a lot of sticks and something on the track and the road is also quite rough. General suitability is available. Depends on the claims. But think Phoenix Lake and Kemnader Lake are better

    The Erzbahnstrasse is certainly from the ground for roller skates and the like agreed. Nevertheless, I advise against it. The route is heavily frequented by cyclists and a roller skater comes quickly by his space-charged movement in conflict with the wheels. Here, the Kemmander Lake in Bochum with separate tracks is urgently advisable.
