Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Landerbach rises as a brook in the Senne, northeast of Stukenbrock, as the outflow of a spring pond. After about 1.6 kilometers, on the right-hand side, he takes the Krampsbach, which also originates in the Senne, over a reservoir and then changes its name to "Landerbach".
The stream flows west towards Schloss Holte and passes under the local motorway entrance to the A33. Below Schloß Holte, the Landerbach takes in the Dalbkebach, which also flows to the right, which is a drain of the Menkhauser Bach and thus creates a connection to this body of water. After this inflow, the Landerbach reaches the area of the Holter Forest, which it flows through on the northern edge. After a few kilometers, the Landerbach crosses the city limits of Verl and flows south past the Sende district. In the further course, the water forms the northern edge of the Holter Forest as a transition to the agricultural meadow landscape. The Landerbach finally flows northeast of Verl into an area used for local recreation in the Ölbach.
The Landerbach overcomes a height difference of 49 meters during its flow, which results in an average bottom gradient of 4.3 ‰. At the northern edge of the Holter Forest there are remains of old weirs in several places in the Landerbach. These were previously closed to flood the adjacent meadows and fertilize the poor soil with the suspended matter. This process was called "meadow rafts".
