6 Tage auf der Emsland-und Haseroute im September 2020
We're on tour again. Now it's the Emsland route. Almost 400 kilometers. We have already made 1/10 today.
We took the DB with 4 changes to Rheine. Actually ... everything went well ... in HH there was only that
Elevator broken ... carry bikes and luggage. Reached the train🚞🚞
From Bremen via Osnabrück to Rheine. Good connection, good cycling compartments, no delay
Rheine, a small, clean town on the Ems, church open, on to Bentlage monastery, also open!
Over the salt mountains with the saline God's gift,
Continue to Enking's Mühle. Ate delicious pumpernickel cake there. Delicious!!
Then quickly continue. Past the swing golf course to the Gleesen lock. The Dortmund-Ems Canal is crossed, the nuclear power plant remains on the right, along the Ems to Lingen. The old country house houses us tonight. The best ate and drank, extremely nice staff. Highly recommended 🤩🤩
Today we went from Lingen to Veenland and then to Meppen.
What can I say🤔
Always the wind from the front, only dead straight stretches, partly on district roads, although there are other bike paths. The sun just didn't want to show itself .... Greetings from the USA ... through the devastating forest fires ....
Very beautiful the Dutch Veenland !!! A new cycle path is currently being built, the migratory birds have probably already gone, but cranes, geese and ducks can be seen.
Through meadows and fields, past many beautiful resting places (frequent smell of pig fattening) to Meppen.
Let's see what awaits us tomorrow🌞😊
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
From Meppen we went to Papenburg today in the best weather.
We started at the Dortmund-Ems Canal. We reach Haren in a beautiful forest, on good bike paths, always along the water, with many, very nice opportunities to take a break. There are a few beauties, and some ships can also be seen.
Around the Europahafen, back on the bike path. Past the old ferry station to the Emsland Cathedral in Haren. Very nice!!!
Soon thereafter there is a mill museum, unfortunately closed.
On beautiful bike paths, via a stud farm, riding stables, to Lathen.
Short visit to Gut Altenkamp in Aschendorf and Papenburg at 30 ° C
reached. A great, impressive day !!!
We had to catch up with Meyer Werft right from the start. .... Took a shortcut yesterday, but the shipyard was a must for me!
At the moment there are no tours due to Corona, but also very impressive from the outside and at a distance!
Because a bridge was closed, we had to take the same route back to Papenburg. Driven another dangling through the beautiful city park.
Always by the oldest and longest fehn, these are the canals. Great old sailing ships are at anchor, very idyllic!
After a long journey along the canals, we came to the Hümmling nature park.
There is a memorial in Esterwegen. Concentration and prison camps. Makes you very thoughtful again ... What people are capable of !!!
From there we went on to Werlte in perfect weather. And saw another very beautiful mill.
And there was also a nice quarter. African Sky Hotel. With the summer temperatures it can't in South Africa either
From the beautiful AFRICA SKY HOTEL in Werlte we went to Sögel. Several horses in the pastures, windmills in the mist of the morning, paddocks with maize through meadows, fields and forests, the Theikenmeer.
In Sögel the beautiful Emslandmiseum Castle Clemenswerth. The top dog determines the event ...
Very interesting and worth seeing. Well-tended grounds, old trees, star-shaped baroque grounds - this is how Elector Clemens August had it built as a hunting lodge. Great!!
You can also see many large stone graves. On the cycle route of the megalithic culture, you can see 30 large stone graves in the moraine landscape of the Hümmling.
Then to the Hüvener mill. Unfortunately closed, but still very nice to look at.
From there on to the old Hanseatic town of Haselünne.
The Rosche and Berentzen grain distilleries invite you to taste and buy ... it worked.
It was another beautiful day with sunshine and little wind!
Tried the apple grain and coffe cream at Berentzen in Haselünne and found it delicious. But our saddlebags are too heavy to be able to transport bottles.
Today we went along the Hase to the train to Meppen. A nice route, at the end a mountain bike tour. Otherwise, the cycle path leads along fruit tree avenues, without inclines, past beautiful farmhouses, through small villages along the winding Hase.
Conclusion of the week: a relaxed bike tour, good bike paths, no inclines, daily highlights, lots of meadows, fields and forests, frequent connections to the DB, plenty of accommodation, good food and excellent weather !!!
