GeoRoute Ruhr—a Network of Geotrails in the Ruhr Area National GeoPark, Germany



GeoRoute Ruhr—a Network of Geotrails in the Ruhr Area National GeoPark, Germany



Geoheritage 4(1-2): 109-114



The Ruhr Area National GeoPark in Germany is located within a densely populated industrial region. Its background and focus are the close relationship between geology-based natural resources and the economic development of the region. In the scenic southern part of the region, where mining activities ceased in the 197s, different initiatives have created a number of mining and geoheritage trails during the past decades. Against the background of the geopark, these individual projects have been consolidated and linked by a newly established long-distance hiking trail, now forming a complex network of all in all some 3 km in length. This facility strongly contributes to the tourist infrastructure, developing as part of the structural changes in the economy of the area.
