Seit über 14 Jahren dreht sich bei mir alles um Radreisen. Als Reiseleiter begleite ich interessierte Leute in ganz Europa und arbeite Radreisen für verschiedene Veranstalter aus. Um eine zusätzliche Perspektive zu bekommen studiere ich Verkehrswirtschaft in Dresden in der Hoffnung, die Welt ein bisschen fahrradfreundlicher zu machen.Als stolzes Mitglied des komoot-Teams darf ich seit 2019 meine Leidenschaft mit euch teilen und stelle euch tolle Radtouren vor. Alles, was du auf meiner Seite findest, bin ich entweder selber abgeradelt oder habe sie so gut recherchiert, als würde ich gleich starten.Zum Schluss noch ein obligatorisches Zitat: „Nur wo du mit dem Rad warst, bist du auch wirklich gewesen”. Frei nach Goethe.
The second stage begins with a drive through the Dubringer Moor. The paths along the ponds look enchanted in the morning, especially in autumn, when light fog rests on the mirror-smooth water.You can see the moor from above from the NABU observation tower. Many animal and plant species feel at home in this special habitat. It then continues through a dense pine forest to the Koselbruch.As a real Krabat fan, you of course know what is waiting for you here: The Krabatmühle. A small village has emerged around the mill. None of the buildings were originally built here, but they are all gathered from the area and are traditional Sorbian houses.There are many interesting things to discover in the Krabat village: a fountain that sings Sorbian folk tunes, a museum about Sorbian folk art, a café, a restaurant and of course the mill itself.After so many impressions, the tour is not over yet. On the way back to Kamenz, wonderful routes through idyllic nature await you. The Biehla pond area, for example, is particularly beautiful. After a total of almost 100 kilometers you have completed the Krabat cycle path and have arrived back in Kamenz.

You start your fabulous journey at the train station in Kamenz. From Dresden there are hourly train connections without changing to Lessingstadt. First you explore the old town with its town hall, the red tower and the Krabat playground.Shortly after you have left Kamenz behind you, you will reach the village of Nebelschütz and you are already in the middle of the land of the Sorbs. The turning gate, the last of its kind, is a special highlight in the village.The path leads you through tranquil villages where time seems to have stood still. Does Krabat have a hand in this? You can drive from village to village without any hectic rush. You may know some place names from the book. In addition to the bilingual place-name signs, inscriptions on crosses and on house walls also reveal that the Sorbian language and culture is alive here.Between the villages you drive on paths and small roads through lonely nature. You hardly find any inclines here. In between you will pass a few ponds, because here in Upper Lusatia carp and other fish have been bred for many generations.The first stage ends in Wittichenau. The scenes in which Krabat or one of the other apprentices turned into an animal took place at the Wittichenau cattle market. The scenes end sometimes funny, sometimes sad, just like the whole story alternates between different moods.

Today I used the nice weather to try out my new racing bike and not study for an hour and a half for tomorrow's test. ;) The Schönfeld highlands are always beautiful for cycling. Unfortunately, everything around Schillerplatz / Körnerplatz is, as always, a disaster. But nothing could spoil my mood today! :)

The last stage on the Emscher Park cycle path is on the one hand quite relaxed, on the other hand a nice summary of the whole tour: relics from the past industrial age and beautiful nature alternate.Right at the beginning you drive through several small nature reserves. In some there are game enclosures and you can watch the game in its natural environment from your bike.The first half of the route is slightly hilly. Although the path hardly climbs noticeably, there are beautiful views of the landscape here and there. Near and far you can see huge mining towers or works of art on the heaps.You drive past the town of Kamen. A short detour to the center is definitely worthwhile, there you will find pretty houses as well as some places to stop for a break. We continue a little on the Klöcknerbahnweg. One of the many colliery railways that have since been disbanded used to run here.As soon as you reach the Datteln-Hamm-Kanal and the Lippe again, you drive partly on the path of the first stage past Hamm to the glass elephant. Enjoy the impressive contrast between almost untouched nature and huge industrial plants.

On today's stage, in addition to other highlights of industrial culture, you will also encounter castles and mansions for a change. But one after anonther. From the Zeche Zollverein you drive on a former railway line that has been converted into a wonderful bike path.There are interesting parks and small nature reserves to the left and right of the path. The sky stairs lead you to the dump Rhine plain and from above you can have a nice view of the wide plain.The cycle path meanders between Bochum and Herne. A particularly beautiful section leads you along the Grummer ponds. There you can also take a short break and watch the geese.The route is particularly varied. Disused mines, nature reserves and settlements alternate. And after a small ascent, a beautiful panorama opens up over the Ölbachtal. The contrasts on the way are exciting. For example, shortly after the interesting and detailed Zollern colliery comes the Dellwig moated castle.Passing Westhusen Castle you will reach the Dortmund-Ems Canal in the northeast of Dortmund. If you followed him, you'd get out of Friesland.

Today's stage is worth a trip in itself, because on the 50 kilometers you will immerse yourself in the fascinating world of industrial culture. A short detour to the Eisenheim factory estate is historically interesting. The first workers' settlement in the Ruhr area was built in 1846.Back on the way, on the banks of the Rhine-Herne Canal, the “Slinky Springs to Fame” bridge meanders over you. In the northeast of Duisburg you drive on a former railway line that has been converted into a wonderful cycle path to the Duisburg Nord Landscape Park.The 200 hectare area around the disused steelworks is the epitome of industrial culture. The park was created as part of the "International Building Exhibition Emscher Park", a future program to improve the quality of life in the Ruhr area.The next highlight is not long in coming. You reach the mighty Rhine and drive on the beautiful promenade, sometimes surrounded by sheep that graze here. You drive past the Duisburg harbor to Essen-Borbeck. There it is worth taking a short detour through the beautifully landscaped castle park.The grand finale of the stage is the Zeche Zollverein. When you arrive here, you are standing 150 years ago industrial history. Today the entire ensemble, which includes an interesting museum, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The second stage continues west, mostly near the Rhine-Herne Canal. Right at the beginning you cross the Waltrop harbor bridge and take a look at one of the security gates, which is lowered in case of danger.Only half an hour later it gets really exciting. The Waltrop lock park is an excursion into the fascinating world of locks. Ship lifts from three centuries stand side by side and form a great backdrop. Together with other buildings, a playground and cafes, the lock park invites you to take a break.A few kilometers further you will encounter the Emscher, the tour's namesake, for the first time. It flows under the Rhine-Herne Canal and then parallel to it. There are also some natural treasures on today's stage, although not as many in a row as on the first stage.If you want to work off halfway through the stage, you should definitely go to the Hoheward heap. It is one of the largest spoil heaps in the Ruhr area and the view from above is gigantic!Passing Gelsenkirchen and with a view of the tetrahedron on the Beckstraße Halde you will reach your destination, the Neue Mitte Oberhausen. There is the gasometer, originally the largest gas container in Europe, today the highest event hall in Europe.

The Emscher Park cycle path begins in the east of the city of Hamm at Maximilianpark. If you arrive by train, you can reach the starting point from Hamm main station in around 20 to 30 minutes. Before you start pedaling to explore the treasures of the Emscher Park Cycle Path, it is worth visiting Maximilian Park. In addition to the gigantic glass elephant, you will find all kinds of colorful gardens there.You ride your bike to the Datteln-Hamm Canal, which initially flows parallel to the Lippe, and follow it almost to the end of your day's stage. If you think a trip along the canal is something boring, you are wrong. From the bank you can see huge industrial buildings and gigantic sculptures, as they can often be found on the renatured heaps.The most beautiful thing that awaits you on the way is what the Ruhr area is least known for: unique natural landscapes. The lip meanders from one nature reserve to the next. The nature reserve with the awkward name "Wetland complex between Landwehrstrasse and Datteln-Hamm Canal" is particularly impressive. There, orchids in the most dazzling colors grow in a meadow not far from the bike path!In the further course you will encounter natural jewels as well as small harbors, some of which have lost their original function and are now perfect places to take a break for cyclists, such as the Preußenhafen in Lünen. The stage ends in Waltrop, where you can spend the night. The next train station, Dortmund-Mengede, is around 15 minutes by bike to the south.
