Wasserburgen-Route planned a bike ride.
August 30, 2017
From Bedburg an der Erft it is on this approximately 45-kilometer stage to Jülich on the river Rur written (without "h", and sometimes referred to as "Eiffel Rur"). Also on this stage, some beautiful castles and moated castles accompany your way - the relatively looped route also stems from the fact that there are two opencast mining areas in the area of this tour, which you will travel extensively.After just the first five kilometers you will pass the small town of Alt Kaster with its historic center and its castle ruins - a highlight on this stage. After another 15 kilometers you reach the forest area of the Sophienhöhe, which you circle around in a semicircle. Behind it lies the mining area Hambach.After 36 kilometers on this stage you will come across the Rur. From here it is still about 10 kilometers downstream to the center of Jülich.
