Today you go on a discovery tour in mining. That probably belongs to a Ruhrpott Cross. And the Muttental is made for it, because here probably the first coal of the potts was mined. Numerous relics from this time you will happen today. If you are more interested, stop here and there quietly - various information boards quench your thirst for knowledge. The Nachtigall colliery offers a really deep insight into the exciting history of the Ruhr area. Here you can even play a hand in an adventure tour and get a feel for what it meant then to bring the coveted coal to light.Not to mention the coal - this tour has a lot to offer. Because of course, the beautiful Muttental, the main venue of today's tour, has nothing to do with industrial noise and coal dust. But on the contrary. Here you can also experience what the Ruhrgebiet has to offer today. And these are beautiful trails, green forests, beautiful tranquility and these rolling hills with their varied up and down, making the pot such a great area for mountain bikers. Our culinary tips: The old train station at the starting point of the tour offers itself for a delicious organic retreat. Alternatively, you can visit one of the restaurants or snack bars in Wetter / Wengern half way.
Today we started the tour at 1-2 degrees - very nice tour. Except for a few closed private roads everything impeccable. Now come the next sections of it :-)
