Road Cycling Highlight
The Eschersheim weir was built in 1928 as one of the six Nidda weirs. In the course of renaturation is like all weirs, including the Eschersheimer weir a barrier in the Nidda. Fish can not overcome the weir height of nearly 2 meters. Plans for the reconstruction or dismantling of the weir are in planning. It is to be replaced by a fixed ramp, a so-called latch ramp. The bar-shaped structure is joined so that the fish can swim upstream through pelvis.About the weir and the Nidda leads a 2.50 m wide transition which is not usable and publicly accessible. In passing the Eschersheimer Raduerweg you can inspect the weir ... 🚴♂️- The Niddaradweg runs along the Nidda in Hesse from the source in the Vogelsberg to the Frankfurt Green Belt and finally to the mouth (Wörthspitze) in FFM-Höchst. Between Schotten and Bad Vilbel it is identical with the Hessian Radfernweg R4. It has a length of about 100 kilometers.
