The peace route in the direction of Osnabrück starts at the historic town hall in Münster. The peace negotiations of the Thirty Years' War took place in the town halls of both cities between 1643 and 1648. They are therefore important protagonists of the peace route you are starting today. The town hall is not far from the train station, so you can simply cycle there after you have arrived in Münster by train.The first stage takes you around 53 kilometers north to Tecklenburg. The cycle path meanders through the Münsterland in several loops.At the gates of Münster you will pass the Riesfeld fields. You can overlook the huge biotope from viewing platforms and, with a little luck, watch birds. Then you meet the Ems and accompany it for a while through its wide floodplains until you turn east. Here you can make a stop at Münster Osnabrück Airport and watch the planes take off and land. Then you cross the Dortmund-Ems Canal and cycle towards the stage destination Tecklenburg.The climatic and Kneipp health resort is the northernmost mountain town in Germany and so you can still enjoy the beautiful view of the Teutoburg Forest Nature Park and the Münsterland in the evening.
