Bike Touring Highlight
The Grade II listed Kruiner Tunnel is 89 meters long and offers a combined train and car passage and a separate pedestrian and cycle path. The latter is kept very narrow. Please drive carefully at the entrance by bike, because you can see the oncoming traffic (pedestrians, e-scooters or other cyclists) very late. Above the tunnel runs a railway track, the construction of which is ultimately responsible for the tunnel, because the earth through which the tunnel passes was then completely filled up.
