Duisburger 8

With ports and industrial heritage, riverside meadows and dump terrain, lakes and rivers, Duisburg has a great deal to offer. Explore all the highlights of our city in one tour: the Duisburger 8! Two loops, each around 50 km long, form the figure 8 and link touristic highlights and appealing landscapes. The routes are ideal for cyclists and show off the diversity of a city that simply has to be discovered.

Water and fire! The northern loop

The northern loop features extraordinary contrasts. Nowhere is the direct proximity of dominant industry and rural idyll more striking than in the north of Duisburg, left and right of the Rhine.

Vanquish the tiger! The southern loop

Vibrant city, industrial culture, dense forests and a sports and leisure landscape dotted with lakes – that is the southern loop of the Duisburger 8.

The Rhine, the city and the village

This is a fascinating tour through the vibrant city and districts on the left bank of the Rhine with sections along both the Rhine and Ruhr.

Industrial culture and water circuit
