    Since 13.06.2018 the new section of the König-Ludwig-Route has been completed. From Becklem in the east, it connects in the south to the already completed in 2008 section.

    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

    Nice straight and leads directly to the canal. Hopefully the other direction will be finished soon.

    The King Ludwig Route (KLT) connects the Rhine-Herne Canal and Becklem on a former railway line. She is consistently good to drive.

    Road to the extension even more beautiful. Very good to drive. There is also much to see. Benches are available in sufficient numbers, so that you can sometimes enjoy the old industrial landscape.

    Wonderful road, there is a lot to see.
    At the point with the really great graffiti you can well take a break and let your mind wander.
    When I was there, I had not seen any garbage or graffiti. (I hope that stays that way for a long time)

    The King Ludwig Trasse is an earlier railway route which connected the individual locations of the mine of the same name with the coal port on the Rhine-Herne Canal.

    The track can be used very well. Low traffic, so good for speed junkies.

    Today I am again from the Henrichenburger the Horneburgerstr. Headed south from KLT - boarding and was horrified by the state of the "road". A thick layer of gravel makes driving and walking very difficult. Therefore from Henrichenburger Str. Through Becklem (Becklemer Str. Then keep left on Bredenbrauck. So you can avoid the torture route.

    This does not directly affect the KLT, unfortunately there are some detours on the canal and on the Emscher cycle path due to the work on the Emscher, which are not so nice. If you come to the canal from the north and want to go in the direction of the ship lift, the end of the Kanalstrasse bridge is over and you have to follow the detour. If you then want to drive along the Emscher Cycle Path you will also come across a construction site that will take you a short distance along the Suderwicher Strasse. The bike path is not very long, but very narrow due to the oncoming traffic. Alternatively via the canal road towards Castrop, then left towards Henrichenburg. Not as nice as on the Emscher but also not as busy. As of May 17th, 2020
