Bike Touring Highlight
The gatekeeper's lodge of the Hugo-Bahn at the Horster road was preserved by the employment of Alfred Konter. The former servant of the Hugo-Bahn, popularly known as Don Alfredo, refused to leave the building when the demolition excavator started. Eventually he was able to prevent the demolition and the house is now managed by the Regional Association Ruhr, and Alfred Konter has exhibited memorabilia in the house. The route of the Hugo-Bahn has been rebuilt as a bike path and leads past the gatekeeper's lodge.
