Bike Touring Highlight
Whether it's worth it or not? So a little port or quasi-marine atmosphere has quite its charm, but the entire area has been artificially pounded out of the ground and it lacks for my taste (yet?) The patina of real life. In any case, there are delicious cakes in the on-site café.

Sport boat center in the old coal port!
Holiday mood in the Ruhr area! The largest marina in North Rhine-Westphalia is idyllically situated on the Datteln-Hamm Canal and offers the best conditions for a relaxing holiday in and on the water!
The former loading port of the oldest colliery north of the Lippe, Werner colliery, operated since 1939 rain trade with export materials of the mining industry. In 1975, the colliery was closed, reloading points, port and quay fell into disrepair. The industrial wasteland directly at the water was taken over 1995 by the city Bergkamen and supplied to a meaningful use!

Every Year they have a weekend of stalls to eat drink and be merry. Live bands and lot of exciting stuff to do. Not forgetting of course the infamous Drachen (Dragon) Boot race on the canal. It just so happens to be this coming weekend 1-3 of June 2018. So get them bikes out as the weather is going to be great and car parking scarce.

From here you can easily start your bike ride. Either direction Hamm or direction Lünen to Seepark. There are possibilities for rest in both directions. The cycle path leads directly along the canal, only around the power plants you have to make a bend or change the canal side in time.
