Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The route from Rheine station to Lutum station at Billerbeck in the Baumbergen is simply fantastic for leisurely cycling, as there are many pausing houses that invite you to have a picnic as well as many rest stops on the left and right of the route which are well signposted.
In addition, the track is also very nice for sporty tours with the road bike, because you are almost always away from the traffic and the subsoil (asphalt) is in good condition except for a few crossings.
In the fall, of course, a lot of foliage and small branches on the way, but that's about the time of year everywhere.

The cycle track Münsterland is a 39.4 km long Bahntrassenradweg on the former route from Rheine to Coesfeld (former course book route 284), a section of the railway line Duisburg-Quakenbrück. The name of the bike path was awarded in the fall of 2011, replacing the former project name Schlossallee Radweg Rheine - Coesfeld off.After the operation ended in 1984 for passenger transport and finally in 1999 for freight, the former railway tracks were quickly overgrown by grass, shrubs and trees.In 2008, the neighboring towns and municipalities decided to buy the derelict railway line and turn it into a bike path. This was also supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The construction costs amounted to about 6.4 million euros, of which the country took over 5.2 million euros

Tours with a whistle
Experience over 40 kilometers of railway history and history, the unmistakable Münsterland park landscape and excellent infrastructure. Where a few years ago dozens of trains were rolling every day, hundreds of Fietsen are now running. The former railway line between Coesfeld and Rheine has been expanded into a first-class cycle path that “attracts” local and foreign cyclists.Discover the RadBahn Münsterland, which was once part of the Oberhausen-Quakenbrück rail link. In 2007, the neighboring municipalities decided to buy the old, unused railway line and set the course for a comfortable cycle path. Today you are always in 1st class there: friends of the home and the railway along the route ensure that the relics of the railway history remain recognizable and that the route is ideal to drive on with a comfortable asphalt surface and a width of 3 meters.With almost no incline, it leads through the typical Münsterland park landscape. The RadBahn Münsterland connects the two lively shopping cities of Coesfeld and Rheine. It leads across the bike regions of Baumberge and Steinfurter Land, along the towns of Coesfeld, Billerbeck, Rosendahl, Laer, Horstmar, Steinfurt, Wettringen and Neuenkirchen to Rheine - of course, the reverse is also possible. In addition to the actual tour, there are round loops through the neighboring towns.On the following pages we have put together interesting information for you about the RadBahn and the Münsterland cycle path network. Have fun cycling!
