It is situated directly on the EUROGA-Radroute, (Cycle Route) which passes the most important cultural and natural treasures between the rivers Rhine and Meuse. The historic old town of Ratingen can be reached easily and quickly via this cycle route. On the other hand the Anger Valley provides inviting tours along the banks of lakes, to historic mills and mediaeval castles or passed moated castles through pleasant woodlands as far as the mediaeval town of Kaiserswerth located on the bank of the Rhine.
