Whether you’re a vegetarian or love your meat to come with extra meat, nothing beats grilling by the river. Except perhaps grilling locally-grown corn on the cob, or local organic chicken legs while you’re surrounded by lush green meadows and looking out over the River Ruhr. Riverside barbecues can be reserved in advance, so you don’t miss out on any of the summer fun.
The Ruhr’s urban nature in all its glory
The Ruhrstrand (or Ruhr Beach) is part of the Ruhr Valley, and you will soon see why the people of Mülheim love this place the way we do. Our natural surroundings, including the river and the diverse flora and fauna found here, dominate the city. Here, everything is possible, from walking and hiking to boating. And, of course, there’s the cycling. The RuhrtalRadweg is the perfect way of exploring the region on two wheels. As well as letting you get back to nature, the series of cycle paths also let you check out the many local landmarks, such as the Ruhr Valley Bridge. Built in 1963, it’s 65 metres high and 1,830 metres across, making it the longest steel road bridge in all of Germany.
