    A great biotope with a nice, quiet hiking trail. The tables are explained understandably and give young and old good information.

    The Ems springs from the seepage source in the NSG Moosheide. First a small stream that later grows into a river. Since I am usually in the Ems floodplains in Münster, Telgte or Eine, it was quite interesting to see the origin of the Ems. And it starts quite small and inconspicuous ;-) The hiking area in the Moosheide is very scenic, with many narrow to wide and sandy hiking trails, through forests and open heath areas.

    Directly at the parking lot you can discover this beautiful "entry" into the hiking experience Emsquellen. The trail is inviting and well fortified.

    The Ems sources are a collection of different bottom openings in the senna sand, through which the filtered is pushed upwards. In this respect no single source.

    The Ems, a really big German river. Being here at the springs is a nice thing. These sources are very nice to hike.

    A visit to the source Ems is worth seeing, if you see what a river from the source to the mouth is already amazing

    The Moosheide is located on the western edge of the military training area Senne, on the northern edge is the former main camp VI K (326), in which today the police school "Erich Klausener" is located. In addition to the Ems springs with the Holtebach another body of water within the Moosheide.The existing sand dunes in the area are counted among the oldest in northwestern Germany, it is believed that they developed from the end of the Weichselian period, that is, beginning about 10,000 years ago. Reforestation, which took place in the mid-19th century, provides room for pine forests. Old juniper plants in the nature reserve bear witness to the original heath vegetation, which was typical of the region before afforestation.

    The Emsquelle. A wooden walkway leads to the spring. Unfortunately, there is dead end there. You can not follow the source path directly.

    The groundwater comes out of the mountain, which descends to the groundwater level. I imagined the spring to be bubbling out of the ground like a garden hose. In truth, the whole eastern depression is the source, which then unites in the Ems.

    The Ems begins as one of those numerous streams of the Senne, which do not spring in a valley of the Teutoburg Forest, but below its foot in only slightly sloping foreland.The source is at about 130 m above sea level. NHN on the border of the city castle Holte-Stukenbrock, district Stukenbrock-Senne

    The source of ems (plural) is used because it is not one, but a plurality of small sources. And these springs feed the brook, which becomes one of the largest German rivers

    Beautiful hiking trails are available from the Emsquelle. When one springs from where the ems and then to what it becomes river to the mouth, that is already astonishing

    A hike to the Emsquelle is very nice. Seeing what gets out of the river to the North Sea is quite amazing
