Bike Touring Highlight
The new route connects in the south to the already completed section to the old harbor König-Ludwig am Rhein Herne Kanal.
The KLT Bahntrasse was extended by the new section from the Ortlohstraße in Recklinghausen to the Becklemer Busch (Horneburger Straße in Castrop-Rauxel.
The new section is completely asphalted and is about 7,0 km long.
In the final stage, the former mine railway line from the Rhine-Herne Canal to the Halde General Blumenthal in Oer-Erkenschwick lead and there connect to the Haard.
I drove on to the ship lift Henrichenburg.
Really beautiful bike path, whose entry into Castrop or Datteln is unfortunately not very well signposted. In general, many more signposts should point to this bike path.
I drove the bike path from the boat lift towards the Rhein-Herne canal where you can then turn left again towards the boat lift. Unfortunately, the bike path on the canal z.Zt. because of a construction site not continuously passable. So follow the diversion and at the Pöppinghäuser Str. Either turn right over the Kanalstr to Habinghorst, Henrichenburg or follow the detour on the left and along the Emscher to get back to the bike path at the Henrichenburg. At the Emscher Cycle Path you will pass Herrman's Ballermann where there is a snack and cold drinks. About the Emscher is nicer. If you leave the boat lift you can drive a very nice circuit. The entrance KLT is from the elevator West direction on the Provinzialstr./Dortmunder Str, behind the bridge left to the courtyards (keep left at the intersection), then left on Horneburger Str., Past Peacock's Manor then left up the ramp to the KLT , Have fun
