On the Möhne Valley cycle path, touring cyclists can experience the Sauerland off the beaten track.
South of the Haarstrang, the route always follows the small river Möhne. On 65 kilometres, it connects the old Hanseatic city of Brilon, the source place, with the mouth into the Ruhr in Arnsberg-Neheim. There, the route joins the popular Ruhr Valley cycle path.
On the tour, you can discover a lot: besides attractive places the Möhne Valley presents itself from its most beautiful side. Alluvial landscapes with lush meadows, green forests and gentle hills are characteristic of the landscape along the tour. And the Möhne Valley is in a constant state of change: Through the project "Möhne Life" parts of the floodplain will be renatured. Colourful valley meadows and light floodplain forests will be restored for many animal and plant species of the low mountain valleys and will offer cyclists an even more fascinating nature experience in the future.
Railway track enthusiasts also get their money's worth. Because large parts of the Möhne Valley cycle path run absolutely free of gradients on a former railway line.
The scenic highlight is Lake Möhnesee, one of the largest reservoirs in North Rhine-Westphalia. The route runs along either the south or north shore and offers pure nature enjoyment. In addition, the impressive 100-year-old dam wall, which is still the heaviest monument in North Rhine-Westphalia today, offers a beautiful view of the lake. In Arnsberg-Neheim the cyclist experiences a true contrast to the rest of the route: The attractive shopping city offers a sense of urban lifestyle directly on the Ruhr river.
