RuhrtalRadweg - The classic

From the Sauerland to the Rhine

Logo Velociped

One of the most varied and versatile rivers in Germany invites you to discover an entire region with its riverside paths. On the 243 kilometers from its source near Winterberg to its mouth into the Rhine near Duisburg, the Ruhr connects the original landscape of the Sauerland with the exciting and eventful Ruhr metropolis.

Day 1: Winterberg Arrival
Look forward to Winterberg, the well-known vacation resort near the source of the Ruhr.

Day 2: Meschede (41 km)
You start your varied journey at the source of the Ruhr. You cycle to the rose village of Assinghausen and the Kneipp spa town of Olsberg before reaching Meschede with the "Sauerland Cathedral".

Day 3: Neheim (43 km)
You quickly reach the parks of the Wasserschloß Laer. Marvel at the historic Altstadt of Arnsberg before cycling along the Ruhr to Neheim.

4 Day: Herdecke (52 km)
The surrounding hills slowly become gentler. You cycle via Wickede and Fröndenberg to the old Hanseatic town of Schwerte. The viewpoint of the Hohensyburg ruins greets you from afar. You cycle directly along the shores of Hengsteysee to the small town of Herdecke.
