Black. Green. Gold. the Ruhr region.

Bike tours in the Ruhr region

With 5 million inhabitants and an area of around 4435 square kilometers, the Ruhr area is the largest metropolitan area in Germany and the fifth largest in Europe. It is named after the river Ruhr. With its surrounding area, it forms the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, in which over 10 million people live. The Ruhr area grew on coal. Almost 200 years ago, the first lumps of black gold were brought to light on the slopes of the Ruhr. Within a few decades, more than 220 mines were built, by 1850 there were 300, later a total of around 3200. Today coal mining is history, the region is subject to a huge structural change. Leisure, sport and greenery are increasingly coming to the fore. An infinite number of bike paths have been built and many bike tours have been developed. We offer the beautiful bike tour along the Ruhr from the source to the mouth and a highly interesting round trip through the Ruhr region.
