Railway tour

You can now explore the city on your bike in a relaxed way on the railway lines on which mine railways used to transport coal and steel. This tour takes you past numerous sights over a distance of 40 kilometres, such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, Grugapark or Margarethenhöhe, as well as renaturalised stream courses through the north, east and south of Essen.
