September 20, 2019
On the last leg of the sandstone route, you will once again experience beautiful and fascinating sandstone structures that you will find along the way.After leaving Coesfeld, you will find yourself in the typical landscape of this cycle of colorful fields and meadows, which is broken by shady woodland. On the way you can take breaks to admire small and large castles, such as the hunting lodge Varlar or the castle Varlar.Halfway you reach Osterwick. In the village offers a rest, because here you have various rest stops to choose from. After a while, you head for the Darfeld Castle. The bike path leads past the castle and then through the town of the same name. In a large arc you then cycle around the forest at Burlo, which is also a nature reserve. Small streams, a pond and the old Burloer mill provide wonderful impressions. On the last few kilometers towards Billerbeck, the destination of the tour, you can finally pedal properly and master the climb up into the city.Before you roll to the train station and head home, it's worth a visit to the city, which for example houses the St. Ludgerus Cathedral - which of course is built of sandstone. At his sight, you can review the beautiful bike ride, where you have learned so much about the sandstone, once again.
