How accessible is the Ruhr Valley cycle path?

The Ruhr Valley cycle path is barrier-friendly and mostly barrier-free. For less experienced cyclists we recommend to start in Olsberg. Due to several problem areas and the slopes, the path from Winterberg to Olsberg can be insurmountable for untrained drivers. Nevertheless, we recommend that people with disabilities do not ride alone on the Ruhr Valley cycle path.

Barrier-free accommodations

Of course, there are accommodations along the Ruhr Valley cycle path, for which accessibility is a big topic. The companies marked with the wheelchair-symbol in the accommodation directory are not only accessible in public areas but also have at least one room suitable for wheelchairs. In any case, it is advisable to reserve the nights before arrival.
