Ruhrgebiet, Germany

The Ruhr (German: Ruhrgebiet) is a polycentric urban area in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The most populous cities are Dortmund, Essen, Duisburg and Bochum. Since the 19th century, these cities have grown together into a large complex with a vast industrial landscape. The Ruhr area has no administrative center.

It consists of several large, industrial cities bordered by the rivers Ruhr to the south, Rhine to the west, and Lippe to the north. In the southwest it borders the Bergisches Land. It is considered part of the larger Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, which is among the largest in Europe.

From west to east, the region includes the cities of Duisburg, Oberhausen, Bottrop, Mulheim an der Ruhr, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Bochum, Herne, Hagen, Dortmund, Hamm, Dinslaken, the southern town of the more rural district Wesel, Recklinghausen and Unna.

Thanks for the information! I use it when making an update (i'm already doing it). I will have to enlarge the map to add channels and make them navigable.

Vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback! Ich mache eine neue Version der Karte in vergrößertem Maßstab.

A update ?!? GREAT !!!
I think, important for Ruhr is the way of the "Weisse Flotte" for passengers. And especially Rhein-Herne Kanal. Is one of the important shipways for industry in this Region!!!
On Lippe dont drive any ships. From Wesel direction to east there is the "Wesel-Datteln-Kanal". Nice to have is also the "Dortmund-Ems-Kanal" from Rhein-Herne Kanal to Dortmund. If the map is big enough, you can build the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal from Rhein-Herne-Kanal to Wesel-Datteln-Kanal... - this region is a great possibility for ships...
THANK YOU for the update!

Die Karte gefällt mir sehr gut -Respekt! - und ich würde sie gern spielen. Leider macht sie den Eindruck als sei das Ruhrgebiet ideal für einen kleinen Spaziergang - nicht für ein Transportunternehmen. Ich möchte lieber eine deutlich größere Variante abonnieren.

Map size is 2000x4000

Thank you for your feedback. I will make the rivers navigable in the next update. Now the ships go only along the Rhine.

Netter Versuch - sieht auf den Fotos nicht überl aus... BUT:
No ships on Ruhr and especially Rhein-Herne-Kanal ?! I think: No go map!!!
