    ... and almost warm enough for swimming even in winter ;-)

    Excerpt from the wiki on the river Erft:
    Due to the hot water discharge from the lignite industry into the Erft, plant species such as the Brazilian thousand-leaf and the South American leaved water-spill can survive here. Every year, 300 million cubic meters of warmed-up groundwater ("swamp water") is pumped from the lignite mine into the Erft. In addition, there is the cooling water from the Frimmersdorf lignite power plant. In winter the mean water temperatures are still 15 ° C and in summer 28 ° C. The middle course of the river is 8 ° C warmer than the upper course. The hot water is supplied below Erftstadt. As early as the 1990s, anglers reported catching piranhas three times, which, in contrast to the sunfish, could not form a reproductive population, but were only exposed aquarium fish and probably only survived for a few months. There are also guppies and red-cheeked turtles in the Erft. For this reason, BUND tried to stop the construction of the Neurath brown coal power plant.

    If you are nearby and want to cycle something, you should calmly follow the Erft towards the source. It doesn't have to be the entire 103 km.
    You will be rewarded with a varied area. Many paths and bridges invite you to do so.

    Here, the Erft flows into the Rhine and from here you should also find the Erft cycle path.

    At the mouth of the Erft you can comfortably sit down with a blanket and follow the hustle and bustle on the Rhine in peace.

    At the end of the Erftradweg. It is worth taking a detour to the ice cream parlor here.
