Ruhr upper reaches

Today, the Ruhr Valley is a green recreational area for the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, and this tour introduces the upper reaches of the Ruhr in the Sauerland region before reaching the Ruhr area itself. The route surprises with some idyllic, renaturalized passages that you wouldn't necessarily expect on the Ruhr. Unfortunately, there is only enough water at the weir in Wickede to navigate the last section of the tour during high water.

What do I need to bear in mind when paddling the upper reaches of the Ruhr?

In many places it is forbidden to enter the river and its banks, generally navigable all year round, weirs must be bypassed, long land transport at the end or end of the tour after 8.5 km.

With the canua app, you'll be well informed and prepared for the water and paddling tours in North Rhine-Westphalia.
