Magnificent moated castles, impressive manor houses made of yellow sandstone and ancient castles crown Münsterland’s landscapes. This region in North-Rhine Westphalia is crisscrossed by numerous bike paths that make for great cycle Tours. They lead you through the unique park landscapes, past numerous rivers and picturesque village centres. Most of the time, the terrain is flat. You only have to pedal a little harder occasionally, looking over the pristine landscape in the distance from the hills.

In this Collection, we show you six bike Tours that reveal the most beautiful castles and palaces in Münsterland. The circular Tours are between 22 and 67 kilometres (13.6 and 41.6 mi) long and mostly flat. On some routes, you can also enjoy a few metres of altitude. Many Tours are suitable for your whole family – there is something for everyone.

In addition to fairytale castles, palaces and manor houses, you can also look forward to wonderful nature on the routes. You cycle through enchanted forests, follow rivers as they wind through green meadows, and discover the typical Münsterland park landscape with its fields and meadows lined with hedgerows. You can always take well-deserved breaks in cosy castle cafés, farm shops and eateries in one of the pretty old towns along the routes. This makes every single Tour a real highlight.
