Cycling, touring, mountain biking
Those with a real spirit of discovery swear by the bike. The hustle and bustle of the city, the peace and tranquillity of the forests, the lake landscapes, dykes and meadows along the Rhine, magnificent views from the former slag heaps – all of these things can be experienced most impressively by bike.
A number of popular cycle routes intersect and link up in Duisburg, including the RuhrtalRadweg, the RheinRadWeg, the Route der Industriekultur and the NiederRheinroute. There are various bike hire shops across the city area and cycling enthusiasts also meet in Duisburg: one of Europe’s biggest nonstop MTB races is held annually in the Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord – the 24-hour mountain bike race.
