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).



"Way-out" – Cool cycling tours for every demand

Wetter is a paradise for pedal riders. Whether it is cozy along the Harkortsee and the Ruhr or rather sportily over the heights in Volmarstein: Here every small and big cyclist finds his favorite route. We have prepared some of the most beautiful bike tours for you. Have fun!

A heartfelt gratitude is due to Günter Rösler, a cycling enthusiast, who has developed many of the bike tours presented.

Note: It is always possible, that certain sections of the sketched routes are not accessible due to construction measures. We kindly ask you to inform yourself in advance. As a rule, however, relatively spontaneous substitutes can also be found.
