  • Römer-Lippe-Route

    The sixth stage is in every respect the culmination of the Roman-Lippe-Route. From Haltern you accompany the Lippe on their last kilometers to the confluence with the Rhine at Wesel. After saying goodbye to the lip, it's on to Xanten. There is the Archeological Park with the temple, the Roman inn, the amphitheater and the museum a must-visit for all cyclists on the Roman-Lippe route.If you have not been to the Roman Museum Haltern the day before, then you can make a detour to the museum before the start of your bike tour. Otherwise, follow the signposted Römer-Lippe route out of the city and soon after hit the Aulandschaft der Lippe.The bike path follows the course of the river and leads you through picturesque meadows and small villages. Behind Dorsten you also meet the Wesel-Datteln-Kanal, which runs parallel to the Lippe. The bike path leads you between the two waters along the direction of the mouth of the Rhine.Shortly before Wesel you cycle on the Roman-Lippe-Route through the varied landscape of the Drevenacker dunes. Here fertile wet meadows, small forests and sandy hills alternate and offer many animals a home.In your dinghy through Wesel you can also take a break in the city, because here are numerous rest stops. Immediately afterwards it is time to say goodbye. On a bridge you first cross the Lippe, which flows a few meters further into the Rhine, and then the Rhine.Along the wide meadows of the Niederrheinische Aue the Römer-Lippe-Route takes you up to your stage destination Xanten. Here you should definitely plan for the visit of the Roman park and the attached museum sufficient time. If you want to dive right, it's best to hang on for a day and explore every corner of the park.
