Hiking: The Dortmund-Ems Canal

For those of us without cars, travel can sometimes be a challenge. Here are two interesting industrial monuments, the Zeche Waltrop and the Boat Lift of the Dortmund-Ems Canal. Both are located in Waltrop, which is difficult to get to without a car, but this hike connects both with a tour of the fading post-industrial landscape of the Ruhr, as its being reclaimed by nature.

How to Get Here:

  • The hike starts at the main Bus terminal of Waltrop, with regular service from Dortmund city.
