Almost everything on this topic revolves around the topic of water. It starts in Spelle. From here you first cycle on the river Speller Aa to Venhaus. All that remains of the castle that once dominated the place is the moat, which today encloses a delightful park and the church of St. Vitus. We continue to the Dortmund-Ems Canal and the Venhaus Lock, then along the Speller Aa to the Blauen and Lünner See lakes. You will find a swimming area at both.In the direction of Lünne you come across the Große Aa and expand your knowledge of water on the Lünne watermill nature trail. You can also make music with the tree trunk xylophone or measure yourself with animals during the long jump. The Landhausbrauerei Borchert offers hearty refreshments and refreshments.Back towards Spelle you temporarily follow the course of the Giegel Aa and reach the nature reserve Speller Dose with its exciting nature trail. The rest of a raised bog is protected here, which has shrunk due to peat extraction and drainage over the past centuries. The old drainage canals keep crossing your path. Finally, you can visit the great museum of the agricultural machinery manufacturer Krone in Spelle. Some of the tractors are over 100 years old and you can even see an American "prairie cutter" from the 1940s. Or you can end the day in the "Speller Welle", the popular family pool.
