On the MöhnetalRadweg touring cyclists can experience the Sauerland away from the climbs. South of the Haarstrang, the route always follows the small river Möhne. Over a distance of 65 kilometers, it connects the old Hanseatic town of Brilon, the place where the river flows into the Ruhr in Arnsberg-Neheim. There is a lot to discover on the tour: besides attractive places, the Möhnetal presents itself from its most beautiful side. Floodplain landscapes with lush meadows, green forests and gentle hills characterize the picture during the tour. And the Möhne Valley is undergoing a transformation: parts of the floodplain have been renaturalized through the "Möhne Life" project. Flowery valley meadows and sparse floodplain forests are being restored for many animal and plant species of the low mountain valleys and will offer cyclists an even more fascinating nature experience in the future.
Railroad track enthusiasts will also get their money's worth. Large parts of the MöhnetalRadweg run along a former railroad line without any inclines. The scenic highlight is the Möhnesee, one of the largest reservoirs in North Rhine-Westphalia. The route leads either along the south or the north shore and offers pure nature. In addition, the imposing and more than 100 years old dam wall, which is still the heaviest monument in North Rhine-Westphalia, allows a beautiful view over the lake.
In Arnsberg-Neheim, the cyclist experiences a contrast compared to the rest of the route: the attractive shopping town offers urban life directly on the Ruhr.
