    This tour is already a real classic among Ruhr cyclists: from Ruhr to Ruhr - the name is program. You start in Hattingen along the Ruhr, then leave the river for a hilly detour on the "coal track route" and reach after about 57 kilometers back the river, which not only gave this tour its name.Let's start in Hattingen, where you have the choice whether you want to arrive by train or car. If you come by train, you simply start at the station. By car we recommend you to start directly at the Henrichshütte, because here are many parking lots.From here you drive to the bank of the Ruhr, where you follow the Ruhrtalradweg for a few kilometers. Here you can enjoy the beautiful river landscape and the Kemnader Lake, where you can treat yourself to a delicious ice cream. In the summer, when the weather is good, there is always an ice cream truck right next to the large car park that will provide you with the sweet treat. A little later, the next break is already on, when you cross the Ruhr by ferry. The small Ruhrtalfähre is specially designed for walkers and cyclists and brings you silently (as with electric drive) to the other shore. Shortly thereafter you can learn a lot about the beginnings of mining in the Ruhr area in the Nachtigall colliery and even enter a small visitor tunnel.Now you have taken enough breaks. In the further course, the cycling is in the foreground and on a really scenic route. The recently inaugurated bike path on the former route of the Elbschetalbahn is just as much a highlight as the quietly located Kohlenbahn, over which you always come slightly downhill to Hattingen. Another highlight awaits you here, the LWL-Industriemuseum Henrichshütte in Hattingen. If you still have time, then be sure to visit this breathtaking terrain, where the oldest blast furnace in the Ruhr area is today.
