    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.

    The Kruiner Tunnel is located on Gevelsberg's city limits to Ennepetal and connects these two cities together. It is 89 meters long and is at the same time a railway or road tunnel. The construction was begun in 1846 and completed and opened in 1882. Since 1988, the tunnel is a listed building.

    Great structure, but only cycle towards Gevelsberg due to the rails

    The heavily polluted road through the Kruiner Tunnel is one of the most unpredictable and dangerous sections of the NRW cycling network. Ale alternatives are unfortunately connected with detours and hills.

    Impressive structure, if you are RR fan, there is a wonderful BR 294 that runs on that RR from time to time. I usually "catch" this train in the morning.

    In the valley of the Ennepe at the Gevelsberg city limits to Ennepetal in the area "Am Kruin" a 340 meter long embankment with a maximum width of 120 meters was built. The tunnel portals are designed differently. The tunnel, which was initially only built for the then sparse road traffic, is 89 meters long, 9.36 meters high and 10.30 meters wide. The dam height above street level is 31 meters.See also:
