"All along the Ruhr..." – 230 km from the source to the estuary.

Der "Ruhrtal Radweg" completely follows the river, which has characterised a whole region up until today: the Ruhr. From the source close to Winterberg to the estuary into the Rhine close to Duisburg. From the Sauerland to the busy "Ruhrgebiet".

On the biking-trail along the border of the river you will discover an incomparably rich spectrum of impressions and experiences. It combines lush nature and idyllic villages with contemplative small towns and metropolises. Away from road traffic to a large extent, its route only seldomly leaves the bottom of the valley. For the most part, inclinations are moderate. Clearly visible signposts show you the right way in both directions. Thus, enjoy your eventful discovery tour along the Ruhr.

Föckinghausen is a good place for an overnight and relaxation stop after 23 km, slightly off the biking trail, after a short uphill ride. We also gladly pick you up at the bike-trail.

"Sauerland Radring" - northern loop 

In autumn 2011 the northern loop was finalised by adapting the old railroad route between Eslohe and Wennemen. It is the connection between the "Sauerland Radring" and the "Ruhrtal Radweg" and offers cyclists another interesting leg. From Wennemen, the northern loop leads on the "Ruhrtal Radweg" to Meschede and along the "Hennesee" (lake Hennesee) back to Eslohe
