Brilon - "Brilon Stadt" station
Soest train station
In 1970, freight traffic between Soest and Belecke was also discontinued and the tracks subsequently dismantled. After a period of disuse, the railroad track was restored and opened to cycle traffic by 1985.
If you cycle the Pengel-Anton-Radweg from Brilon, you cycle on the gradient. In Rüthen, you quickly reach the district of Soest. A detour to the historic town center of the mountain town is recommended. But the route also goes in the opposite direction, typically for cycle paths on former railroad lines, mostly without any significant gradients.
Belecke is also a good starting point or destination for a tour on the Pengel-Anton-Radweg, as this is where cycle tourists can connect to the RLG FahrradBus in the direction of Soest and Lippstadt/Warstein.
Between Rüthen, Belecke and the Möhnesee, the different landscape characteristics of this region also become clear. To the north of this section of the route, you will discover the farmland below the southern slope of the "Haar", and to the south the extensive woodlands of the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park.
Downstream along the Möhne, the route then leads to the Möhnesee. In generous sweeps, you cycle gently out of the valley up to the ridge of the Haarstrang. Before you roll down to the Hanseatic town of Soest with its numerous sights, it is worth taking a look at the lake and the kilometers you have covered from above.
