We take you on a journey through time into German industrial history: The Ruhr area is changing from a coal region to a cultural region with high recreational value. On our cycle tour from Dortmund to Duisburg we present you the most beautiful sides of the “revier”. Let yourself be surprised at how green the Ruhr area is! The meadows of the leisurely flowing Ruhr are a paradise for grazing cows, horses, geese and families of ducks. You cycle relaxed on the Ruhr Valley cycle path and follow former railway lines. And we tell you stories from the allotment garden, about the “Büdchen” and “Omma”.

You start in Dortmund: via the spectacular skywalk of the former Phoenix West blast furnace, you climb on secured walkways and stairs to dizzying heights of almost 70 meters. The Ruhr takes you to where it all began: to the Nachtigall colliery in Muttental. Hattingen surprises as a half-timbered town worth seeing in the rural part of the Ruhr area.
In Essen, the Krupp family built Villa Hügel as their family home and also the garden city of Margarethenhöhe. You will experience the world cultural heritage Zeche Zollverein, which houses, among other things, the Red Dot Design Museum. The Rhine-Herne Canal takes you to the Gasometer in Oberhausen, one of the most unusual and largest exhibition halls in Europe. On the way to Duisburg you take a detour to the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park. If you want, you can take a harbor tour through the largest inland port in the world on your own after the end of the trip (not included).
You stay in comfortable and modern hotels, with a double overnight stay on the Margarethenhöhe. You can taste local beer in the small Bergmann brewery. You dine in Dortmund's oldest inn, and we have selected well-known hotel restaurants and restaurants for you.

Individual arrival to the starting hotel. Secure car parking near the starting hotel (charges apply).
At 14 p.m. our tour guide welcomes you to the modern Hotel Hampton by Hilton Dortmund Phoenix See. You then take a short bike tour to the former steelworks: via the Skywalk Phoenix West you climb the impressive industrial monument and look from a lofty height into the blast furnace and over the Dortmund area. Afterwards, fortify yourself in the Bergmann brewery – true to the in-house motto: Hard work, honest pay. For dinner we take you to the oldest inn in Dortmund.

After a few kilometers of cycling you reach the Ruhr: you follow the quiet river through its lovely meadows to the Muttental. After the lunch picnic, you will visit the Nachtigall colliery: Here you will find out where and how it all began. Later, your e-bikes roll along Lake Kemnader. The Henrichshütte is on your way before you reach the half-timbered town of Hattingen. You stay overnight and eat a few kilometers outside in the rural Hotel Zum Hackstück.

In the morning you stop with your bikes in the beautiful old town of Hattingen. On the Ruhr we tell you something about the historical towpath. On the south bank of Lake Baldeney you cross a weir: the fish take the elevator here! Through the Kruppwald you reach Essen on the Margarethenhöhe. When you arrive, you will discover the arcades and archways of the beautiful garden settlement by bike. You will sleep for two nights in the comfortable Hotel Margarethenhöhe. Tonight you will eat in the hotel restaurant.

Your e-bikes roll down to the gasometer along a railway line and through allotment gardens. You will experience the fascination of the gigantic exhibition hall and the view from the old gas storage facility. Later you drive relaxed along the Rhine-Herne Canal to the Zollverein Coal Mine. During your tour you will learn why UNESCO counts this symbol of successful structural change as a world cultural heritage site. Back at the hotel, you have the evening at your leisure. You can also take a trip to Rüttenscheider Straße, Essen's nightlife district.

Today you follow the course of the Ruhr again. Large paddocks and riding stables are on your way to Mühlheim: You stop at Broich Castle, the oldest Carolingian fortress north of the Alps. Finally you reach the foothills of the Duisburg harbor. A detour takes you to the impressive Duisburg-Nord landscape park. From here you drive to the Rhine to the mouth of the Ruhr and into the old town to your Wyndham Hotel Duisburger Hof. For the final dinner, we will take you to the trendy district at the newly designed inner harbor.

The Ruhr area cycle tour ends after breakfast. If you want, you can visit the Duisburg Cultural and City History Museum or the Küppersmühle Museum on your own or take a harbor tour (all suggestions are not included in the tour price).
