On my preferred section, the Ruhr winds through wide floodplains in countless loops. It "swallows" its wild sisters Lenne and Volme south of the Hohensyburg near Hagen, and then follows a furious ride past castles, collieries and factories. There I am completely in my element. We even have to cross once. Hopefully the ferryman at Hardenstein Castle will still have a place free for us!
