Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Landerbach rises as Knochenbach in the Senne northeast of Stukenbrock as a runoff of a spring pond. After about 1.6 kilometers, he takes on the right side of the spring also rises in the Senne Krampsbach on a pike and then changes its name in "Landerbach".The brook flows in a westerly direction to Schloß Holte, passing under the local motorway access to the A33. Below Schloß Holte, the Landerbach takes on Dalbkebach, which also flows on the right-hand side, which is a discharge of the Menkhauser stream and thus establishes a connection to this body of water. After this inflow the Landerbach reaches the area of the Holter forest, which it flows through at the northern edge. After a few kilometers the Landerbach crosses the city boundary to Verl and flows south past the district of Senden. In the further course of the water forms the northern edge of the Holter forest as a transition to the agricultural meadow landscape. Northeast of Verl, the Landerbach finally flows into an area used for recreation in the Ölbach.The Landerbach overcomes a difference in altitude of 49 meters during its course, resulting in a mean bottom slope of 4.3 ‰. At the northern edge of the Holter Forest, there are several remnants of old dams in the Landerbach. These were formerly closed to flood the adjacent meadows and fertilize the nutrient-poor soils by the suspended matter. This process was called "meadow rafting".Source: Wikipedia
