Münsterland planned a bike ride.
April 17, 2020
Immediately after Ochtrup you will be welcomed by wonderful nature: You cycle through the nature reserve Tuetenvenn and then along the edge of the Gildehauser Venns. Shortly afterwards you will reach Bad Bentheim. Here is the Bentheim hill castle. A visit is definitely worth it, because you can not only visit the castle, but you also enjoy a wonderful view from the castle over the city and the Münsterland park landscape.From Bad Bentheim you can get back to nature in a short but fast descent. Romantic streams, over which artistic sandstone bridges lead, cross your path. Silent forests and lush meadows stretch to your left and right. The highlight of this picture book landscape are the Haddorfer lakes, where you can even cool off on hot days.Shortly after the lakes you reach Neuenkirchen. From here you ride on a beautiful railway bike path that leads you comfortably to the stage destination Rheine on a slightly sloping route. At the end of the day you can make a detour to the Bentlage Monastery, which is located on the outskirts of the city.
