Along the Wesel-Datteln Canal we hike near Dorsten through meadows, forests and river meadows.
The Wesel-Datteln Canal is the focus of this hike in the northern Ruhr region. This 60 km long waterway connects the Rhine near Wesel with the Dortmund-Ems Canal near Datteln and runs mainly parallel to the river Lippe. We follow the canal from Schermbeck back to Dorsten. The outward route takes us across meadows, fields and through sparse woodland. In Dorsten town centre, various cafés and restaurants invite you to take a break. If you want, you can also cool off in the Atlantis leisure pool.
