    Stop in the lock keeper's cottage. Nice beer garden, grill sausage and refreshments - ÖZ only until 19h

    Definitely recommended. Enjoy food and drink, watch the MS Schwalbe at the lock process, then use the beautiful Ruhr Valley Cycle Path.

    The Witten Niagara Falls. Always a great sight. The second picture shows what it looks like when the river clears up. The picture was taken about 1 week after the flood (July 2021). The residents are still busy cleaning up the damage caused by the flood. The royal lock keeper's house was 1 meter under water, flooded the basement and destroyed many of the electrical devices.
    The restart is for July 28th, 2021 provided the electrics participate.
    So folks, stop by and eat and drink deliciously and support the lock keeper's house!

    The cycle path starts to become more cycle-friendly here. The humid ambient air caused by the waterfall is a great way to cool off on hot summers.

    Especially on warm days, the air is pleasantly cooled by the waterfall. The algae that dry in the air give the Ruhr area a touch of the sea. The adjoining beer garden is not burdened by eufactor and invites you to take a break from Pepsi

    Wildly romantic, but very, very crowded on weekends

    If possible, I recommend using weekdays. We were out on a sunny Sunday and there were a little too many pedestrians and cyclists on the way for me. Well that's just the way it is on these days, unfortunately I couldn't switch to a weekday and then I had to accept it.

    Nice piece of the bike path. Just take a break here. The old ferry house comes a few meters further on. Nice beer garden.
