RS 1 - this is the name of the ambitious project in the context of which a cycle route through the Ruhr area is to be created, which will run from Duisburg via Essen, Dortmund to Hamm. Large parts are still future music. However, this one already exists: The cycle path Rheinische Bahn, which currently connects the center of Essen with Mülheim an der Ruhr with a length of about eleven kilometers.The course of the cycle path Rheinische Bahn corresponds to the built around the year 1870 Ruhr area route, which is still known as the Rheinische Bahn and 2002 was also decommissioned for freight. Now it is being recultivated as a cycle path. Where once trains rattled through noisy, dirty industrial plants especially the company Krupp, today people seeking relaxation or commuters roar on their bicycles through urban recreational area that will surprise you even as Ruhrpott connoisseurs one or the other times. So beautiful green can be Ruhrpott.In Fronhausen you have access to the Gruga bike path, which leads to the famous Essen Park and the Grugahalle - also on old railway line. The Gruga Cycle Path leads directly into the Ruhrtal Cycle Path.The area around the bike path is full of architectural, cultural and industrial-historical highlights that will allow you to easily make your journey across the rather short route into a full-day program.
