Tips

  • Touring Olli

    The DEK is easy to drive on large parts. Unfortunately, some detours lead through deep sand and fairly busy roads without bike lanes. There are also stretches with very uneven surface. Most of the channel is passable on both sides.

    Typical canal cycle paths, but everything is mobile!

    Cycle route Dortmund-Ems Canal from Dortmund to the north
    Cyclists have access to a great wealth of historical, technical and cultural sights. Idyllic villages and pulsating towns lie along the route, some of which follow the old towpaths directly along the canal, some of which follow the course of the canal a little off the water.

    A really nice stretch of the way. Lots of trees, reeds ...

    As early as 1824-1828, the Ems-Hase Canal/Haneken Canal was built from Hanekenfuhr south of Lingen to the Hase in Meppen as a 25 km long side canal of the Ems. When the Dortmund-Ems Canal was built, it was expanded and almost entirely incorporated into the Dortmund-Ems Canal.
