Bike Touring Highlight
Münsterland planned a bike ride.
April 17, 2020
In Rheine you follow the beautiful bike path along the Ems. Then you cross the river and the Emsauen and cycle through fields, meadows and spruce forests to Bevergern. Here you meet the Dortmund-Ems Canal and the “Nasse Dreieck”, where the Mittelland Canal branches off. You cross all the canals and cycle past Gravenhorst Abbey to Ibbenbüren Aa. You follow the beautiful bike path that leads directly along the shore to Ibbenbüren. Here you have reached half of the stage and can take an extensive break.Freshly strengthened, it goes out of the city on the banks of the Aasee. Via Laggenbeck you continuously drive slightly uphill into the Teutoburg Forest. Surrounded by shady trees, it is moderate at first, then across fields and through small forest areas up to Tecklenburg. Here you have more than earned a relaxing break in the pretty old town.With new strength you race down to the water castle Haus Marck in a rapid descent. Then you roll along a slightly sloping route along the edge of the quarry nature reserve along Kleefeld Canyon. You alternately enjoy wonderful distant views of the unique landscape and passages through romantic forest until you reach the stage goal Lengerich.
