Rhine Cycle Route

Always along the Rhine, upstream or downstream, the Rhine Cycle Route is a 1,400 kilometer long bike path that leads from the source of the Rhine in the Swiss Alps to its mouth near Rotterdam. This means that it also runs past Monheim am Rhein. Let “Old Father Rhine” take you on an interesting tour of discovery. And you can always leave the Rhine Cycle Route and visit the many attractive sights in Monheim am Rhein, cycle around the city or cross the Rhine with one of the ferries.

On the way downstream, you cycle from the Rheinbogen Landscape Park, a treat for families, past the artworks of the Monheim Geyser and the statue of Leda, to the Eel Fishing Museum in the Aalschokker fishing boat called "Fiat Voluntas" and finally through the Urdenbacher Kämpe Nature Reserve to Haus Bürgel, a former Roman fort and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hungry after all that cycling? The eateries in the old part of Monheim to the south and in the northern district of Baumberg offer a delicious variety of food and drink for short stops and longer breaks. As Goethe’s Faust says about sublime moments: "Ah, stay a while! You are so lovely!’ "

Here’s the map with all bike paths and parking spaces in the Monheim urban area. You can see everything at a glance on our cycle map.

The Piwipper Böötchen Ferry (a seasonal passenger and bicycle ferry service) will allow you to cross the Rhine to get to Monheim from the “wrong side of the Rhine” or to continue your bike ride on the opposite side of the Rhine in the area in and around the town of Dormagen.
