    A typical Ruhrpott-Trassenradweg in its most beautiful form. It begins at the marina on the Rhine-Herne Canal and leads over about eight kilometers former railway line to Recklinghausen-Suderwich.

    The route is named after the König Ludwig colliery, which began coal mining in 1885 in the south of Recklinghausen. This in turn had its name from the Bavarian fairy tale king Ludwig II, who had the famous castle Neuschwanstein built near Füssen. On the way, you will pass by relics from the coal age: old buildings, various railway bridges and even a historic locomotive recall the original purpose of the cycle path.

    The KLT is great to drive. From the Recklinghausen city harbor along the canal to the lock you will find the entrance to the KLT. Over many bridges, with great views. You can also find many relics from the mining industry, as well as many beautiful graffiti.

    I do not quite share the enthusiasm for this section. The KLT is sometimes very narrow, the water-bound ceiling extended and with thick grooves and loose gravel. In order to "loose" there, you should be a safe cyclist. If that is, it is indeed one more of the many beautiful railway tracks in the Ruhr area.

    I drove the route for the first time, was thrilled. In RE-Suderwich, near the route to the Suderwicher Alm (with tetrahedral roof), a drivable heap with a fantastic view. The route currently ends in Becklem, a farming community of CAS-Henrichenburg, in the middle of fields and easy-to-drive commercial routes. B. to quickly reach the old Henrichenburg boat lift and the Schleusenpark-Waltrop, nice places to rest there. (Langers Gastrobus, Papachristos, M. Kortmann Café Restaurant)

    Beautiful railway line, with relics from the mining industry to marvel at! There is a diesel locomotive, a battery locomotive and also a catenary locomotive from underground! There is also a coal cart on a tipping device, extension arches with pipelines and EMS rails, a shield extension, a rope pulley and mine graffiti! So almost everything a friend's heart desires!

    The route from Suderwich around Horneburg to Oer-Erkenschwick and, if possible, up to the Haard is planned to be expanded. The route is already 8.7 kilometers long, with another 6.6 kilometers to be added.

    Because of these paintings alone, the trip on the König-Ludwig-Trasse is worthwhile
