In Coesfeld you get on the west route in the 100 castles route. You can get here comfortably by train, for example from Münster, Dortmund, Dorsten or Enschede in the Netherlands.Right behind Coesfeld you cycle through a hilly field and meadow landscape and pass the first magnificent buildings, such as isolated country houses and the Gerleve monastery. Through the Roruper wood you enjoy a refreshing descent and continue on flat paths.In Buldern you can make a detour to Buldern Castle. Then you cycle to Dülmen. Here you have already covered just over half of the stage and can treat yourself to an extensive break. Numerous terraces in the center invite you to linger when the weather is good.Freshly strengthened, you drive on through beautiful nature. Blooming rhododendrons along the way, wide meadows and romantic forests alternate along the way. Shortly before the stage goal you pass Schloss Sythen. Then you will reach Haltern am See, where you can end the day on the banks of the picturesque reservoir.
