Since 1995 the Association for Town Marketing of Wetter ("Stadtmarketing für Wetter e.V.") works for the presentation of the location Wetter and the systematic prestige advertising as well as for improving the attractiveness of the town of Wetter (Ruhr) for citizens of Wetter (Ruhr), citizens of the surrounding area as well as resident and interested companies. The association wants to contribute by ideological, material and / or financial support for appropriate events in cultural, sporting, economic, social and / or environmental fields. The association can also achieve these purposes by implementing appropriate procedures (eg. planning and guidance documents, publications and related services).



Hiking tour Ruhr meadows

The circular route:


What does an upstream fish track look like? Who used the historical cable-stayed bridge in the Ruhr meadow and what does it look like up close? This and much more you will discover on our hiking tour through the Ruhr meadows.

We start at the  parking lot by the lake. The first destination of our hike is the  upstream fish track at the Obergraben. We continue over the  second Ruhr bridge into the  Ruhr meadow.  Here the oldest, still original cable-stayed bridge in Germany is located. It was built in 1893 and is normally not accessible for sightseeing. Our hike offers the chance to see the bridge from a striking distance.

After visiting the  AVU waterworks the group decides whether we take the tour through the Ruhr meadows in the direction of Volmarstein over the  Overweg bridge or to take a similar way back to the  starting point.
