Bike Touring Highlight
Ilona went for a bike ride.
April 13, 2021
I started here in Lübbecke and then it went via Isenstedt and Espelkamp to Rahden.There I paid a little outside visit to the market tavern and got a little wistful. What nice evenings we spent there when the Foggys, a local band, played a session there once a month.The Museumshof Rahden wants to build a bridge from the past to the living and working world of our rural ancestors. With the exception of the barn, his buildings were all on different farmsteads in what is now the town of Rahden. Under the guidance and advice of the State Office for Building Maintenance in Münster, they were removed by local craftsmen, restored and built into a courtyard between 1962 and 1966 - today's museum courtyard.The main house, a two-column house from 1689, is grouped with a storage room, bakery, barn, sheepfold, wagon shed, Bokemühle, bleaching hut, beehive, earth cellar, drying house and, somewhat apart, the Heuerlingshaus.All buildings are equipped with old household items. You can see all the equipment that was part of the rural housework of buttering, baking, flax processing as well as spinning and weaving. The old agricultural implements from harrows and plows to sickles and flails are in their place as they used to be.Since 2012 it has also been possible to get married in the wedding room set up in the old barn.Of course, because of Corona, you can't walk through the whole area now, but there is a footpath around the area that you can walk.Then it went on to the Auesee in Espelkamp, a very beautiful nature reserve that I had already described in detail.The paths are not muddy, so I'll be there with a friend for the next few days.Then on to the milk filling station in Fiestel, where the stork's nest has recently been occupied. However, the storks had just flown out.Then back home via Schloss Benkhausen and the Rauhe Horst.
Very nice tour, Ilona 😍 ... and wonderfully commented 👌👍 ...
Thanks Klaus, this time I've made a special effort.And when the museum courtyard reopens, I can go there again.
Nice tour. The Aue See is also on my wish list. But it's pretty far.
As far as you are concerned, yes, but I feel the same way in your direction.Or you can take the train in one direction.But the Auesee is really worth it and best of all on foot. But you can also push.
I've already made it to Rauhe Horst. Just have to find a nice way over the mountain. Probably there via Grünen See and Preußisch Oldendorf. Then return via Bad Holzhausen. Beyond the mountains everything is flat. Then I can save battery.
That's right and the Rauhe Horst is always worth it. I'm curious how you like the Auesee.
