Sauerland Tourismus planned a bike ride.
April 16, 2019
The Möhnesee is a well-known leisure destination in the Sauerland. It is one of the largest reservoirs in North Rhine-Westphalia and offers on its shores numerous opportunities for wonderfully natural breaks on your bike ride. But the actual "star" of this tour is the Möhne, the little river that feeds the Möhnesee. It rises in the old Hanseatic city of Brilon and flows into the Ruhr in Arnsberg-Neheim. Through the valley of the Möhne runs the approximately 70-kilometer-long route, which leads you through wonderfully located bike paths with almost no gradients through the Sauerland.There is much to discover along the way. Before you go, it's worth taking a look at the beautiful old town of Brilon. Maybe you'll roll past the baroque town hall on the old market square and tune in to the upcoming tour in one of the cozy cafés with a fresh watch maker? As soon as you sit on the bike, you dive into the idyllic nature of the Sauerland. Smooth paved railway tracks make the ride pure pleasure. On the way you can enjoy wonderful views of the countryside or discover here and there relics from the time, where trains still rattled over the rails here.The Möhnesee is of course a highlight of the tour and here you will find a cozy place on the shore or a restaurant for a long break. But along the route there are plenty of opportunities for short stops. As part of the renaturation project "Möhne Life", a total of 13 rest areas and information points have been set up, inviting visitors to linger. So you finally reach the mouth of the Möhne in the Ruhr and thus the end of the MöhnetalRadwegs in Arnsberg-Neheim. Here you can expect the vibrant life of the attractive shopping city - a nice contrast to the idyllic and quiet bike tour that you have behind you.All information about the MöhnetalRadweg can be found here: moehnetalradweg.de.
