Bike Touring Highlight
The Datteln waterway junction, also known as the Dalkeln Canal Cross, is a waterway crossroads in the North Rhine-Westphalian city of Datteln, which connects the canals of the West German sewer system. There is also the seat of various water authorities, companies and associations. The distinction of the property as the largest channel node in Europe is obviously attributable to the then Dattelner Mayor Horst Niggemeier, who also called the 1969 Dattelner Canal Festival into being.In the Dattelner harbor there is no more transshipment, it is a rest and base with services (used oil disposal, drinking water supply etc.). There is a sports boatyard, the boats of the Marine Comradeship and the reservists club and boathouses of the water sports clubs.In addition to the waterways, the fortified paths along the canal are popular routes for cyclists and walkers. They partly run on old towpaths.Along the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal-Route you can cycle from the Dattelner Meer to the North Sea.

Dattelner seaThe port of Datteln is the meeting point of the Wesel-Datteln-Kanal and the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal. Here's where it goes: the waterways expand into a vast expanse of water - the "Dattelner Meer", a popular leisure center.
Here, barges were hauledAt times of the drag monopoly on the West German waterways from 1914 to 1967, the non-motorized barges were connected to the state tugs to be hauled to the ports of the sewer network. At the former lifting point of the towing operation, the boatmen were able to solve the necessary tickets. Today, the Dattelner Meer is home to the remote control center, a base of the water police and several companies for marine equipment.metropoleruhr.de/freizeit-sport/ausflugsziele/kreis-recklinghausen/datteln/dattelner-meer.html
