Town, Land, River

Schwerte is the green living room of the Ruhr metropolis, with its city flair, while being at the same time on the edge of the Sauerland with its pure nature. The link? – The Ruhr which flows here through a surprisingly varied landscape, which you can experience in a wonderful way on two wheels on the 230km long Ruhr Valley Cycle Way. On the other hand, if you’re on the Industrial Culture Cycle Way, you can have a relaxed ride through the history of the ‘Ruhrpott’ – and your overnight stop on both routes: The Reichshof.

As a Bed and Bike accommodation provider we are attuned to the needs of long-distance cyclists. Your bikes will be under lock and key overnight, and you can charge up your E-bikes for free. And if you’ve been caught in the rain on your ride we’ll get your shoes and clothing dry for your start the next day.

You’ve got a rattly bike? We’ve got tools for DIY experts and can also recommend the bike shop close by, for all kinds of repairs and servicing.

To keep you going on your next stage we’ll gladly provide a packed lunch (7 Euro per person) or, if you wish, we can take your luggage off your hands. (Price for luggage transfers on demand; e.g. Schwerte – Hattingen, 1 to 8 suitcases, 75 Euro.)

If you like being with us, well stay! You can take advantage of our network of contacts: “Schwerte hospitable and active”. With our partners, we’ll create a made-to-measure package to suit you: e.g. leisure, gourmet food, conferences and fun.

Two examples:
Culinary delights along the Ruhr Valley Cycle Way - for small groups, from four people
Canoeing beside the Ruhr Valley Cycle Way - a canoe trip, with your bikes and luggage transported for you.

Have we aroused your interest? Then talk to us - we look forward to meeting you!
