The large W in the logo stands not only for the name of the community, but also for a whole bundle of qualities that make the community of Wickede (Ruhr) attractive and forward-looking. What exactly these are should be experienced for yourself during a day trip or a stay of several days.
Water and vastness can be experienced in the Ruhr river valley and in the meeting of the Sauerland forest landscapes and the fertile Hellwegbörde. In the Ruhr bend of the Echthausen district, the best drinking water is produced for hundreds of thousands of people. For 12,000 inhabitants and about 4,500 employees in partly world market-leading companies, the place at the Ruhrtalbahn and at the freeway junction Werl is a vital tourism and business location.
In the summer months, for example, the open-air swimming pool on the banks of the Ruhr invites families to take a sporting or relaxing break, while a bike park provides further variety and is the ideal place for young mountain bikers to let off steam. Extensive forest areas "on the doorstep" offer the best conditions for varied walks, bike tours and hikes. Special highlights: the hiking route RundWickede, the town center with extraordinary flower arrangements or the new QuerFeldLand bike route as a south-north tangent between the RuhrtalRadweg and the Römer-Lippe-Route. Other excursion destinations and highlights of the region are only a few kilometers away. Within a radius of 30 minutes, you can reach the largest lake in North Rhine-Westphalia, the Westphalia Stadium or the Philharmonic Hall in Dortmund, the medieval architectural culture in Soest or Arnsberg as the seat of important state authorities. It is therefore worthwhile to pay Wickede (Ruhr) a visit.
