Go on a journey through time and gain insights into an ancient craft.It starts in the center of Ankum. You cycle south past Ankumer See and follow the course of the tour through a field and forest landscape. Before Döthen you can take a detour to the Näpfchenstein, which is surrounded by a legendary story. Then you get to Eggermühlen with its lovely castle, which is surrounded by a moat.After a short stop, the path leads you past magnificent half-timbered courtyards - the Artland is known for its well-preserved and richly decorated half-timbered houses. And the next highlight is not long in coming: The moated castle Loxten is surrounded by a wide park, not far from the estate there is also a mill worth seeing.You get to Bersenbrück via Druchhorn. There you can visit the former Cistercian monastery that operated two mills - the rabbit mill and the field mill. Then you cycle towards Ahausen and from there towards the south past the Lordsee.
