240 kilometres of cycling fun in NRW, more precisely between the Sauerland and the Ruhr Metropolis - the new Ruhr Area.

No other river in Germany combines (industrial) culture and nature in such a confined space. Starting from the source of the Ruhr river at the Ruhrkopf near Winterberg, the most diverse experiences are lined up like a string of pearls to the Rhine Orange in Duisburg.

On this website, you will find all information about the 4**** quality cycle route.

Have fun browsing and, of course, we look forward to your message, either via our contact form or on Facebook!


Along the RuhrtalRadweg all accommodation companies are Bett + Bike certified!
