Bike paradise Munsterland

Eine Rundreise durch das Münsterland

"Pättkes", wild horses and flamingos

Discover Münsterland, the cyclists' paradise that puts a spell on all bikers. As you ride through beautiful villages, pastures, and meadows, you will have the chance to see castles, palaces and former courts. The routes are mostly flat, well-paved bike trails- the so-called "Pättkes" that are typical of Münsterland. Plenty of signs make finding your way easy, and allow you to concentrate on the scenery rather than not getting lost. This also means you can safely pick your own route from one stop to the next.

Itinerary

Individual arrival to Münster. The marketplace, the beautiful gabled houses, the old city hall and the former bishop's palace will give you plenty to see while in the city.

Imagine you've just hopped on the bike and are already at the first of many sights: the beautiful Hülshoff palace, surrounded by a moat, and containing the "Droste Museum." Narrow trails through the fields will lead you past the Havixbeck house and finally into Eggerode, the flower-filled second place winner of the "beautifuly our village" contest.

As you ride, you'll pass the occasional farmhouse, far removed from its neighbors, before arriving in Ahaus where you have the chance to visit a beautiful, moated baroque palace. As you ride along the border with Holland, you'll find yourself in moors and pastures on the way to the Zwillbrocker Venn national park. Flamingos and black-headed gulls await you there!

So, you thought it couldn't get any better? Well, it can! Holland is perfect for bicyclists: you'll follow narrow streets and bike trails, and ride along country roads to the Weenik cheese factory, which you can tour if you're interested. Then on to the huge Vragender windmill, followed by the historic city of Bredevoort. In the afternoon, you'll find yourself back on the "road of 100 palaces," which you will follow straight to the moated palace of Raesfeld.

The road of 100 palaces is no exaggeration: just after you leave Raesfeld, the next moated palace greets you. Welcome to the palace at Lembeck. On the palace tour, you'll have the chance to observe the baroque and Biedermeier culture before continuing past the Merfelder Bruch (Merfeld Fen), with its wild horses, to arrive in Coesfeld. In the evening, we suggest a visit to the Stephanus brewery in the middle of town.

Today you'll pass through the Baumberge (lit. "Tree mountains"), the only hills in Münsterland. After a few kilometers of rolling hills, you'll be back on the flatland, following the bikepath via Senden to Lüdinghausen. While you're here, don't miss the medieval fortification of Vischering castle, with its drawbridge and museum of Münsterland's history.

And now for the Pièce de résistance: the palace at Nordkirchen, known as the "Versailles of Westphalia." Not stopping here is hardly an option, as the interior decoration of the palace is masterful! For the rest of the day you will continue along the road of 100 palaces, passing the Romberg and Byink houses, and the Davensberg castle on your way to your final stop in Münster.

After breakfast at the hotel, your tour ends.

Große Münsterlandrundtour
Wir sind vom 10.07. bis 17.07.21 die große Münsterlandrund mit eigenen Fahrrädern abgeradelt. Die Buchung direkt bei Rückenwind war problemlos. Die Unterlagen kamen nach der Bezahlung sofort. Die Unterlagen mit dem "bikeline" Radtourenbuch waren zum Einstimmen und Vorbereiten auf die Radtour hervorragend. Die Tour selbst hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Gespickt mit landschaftlichen und baulichen Höhenpunkten empfanden wir die Tour abwechslungsreich und sehr interessant. Der Gepäcktransport hat super geklappt. Wir können die "Große Münsterlandrundtour" absolut empfehlen. Ein Hinweis: Wir sind die Tour zu 100% mit Navi gefahren. Rückenwind stellt für die Tour die GPX-Daten zur Verfügung. Ich kann nur jedem raten, diese Möglichkeit zu nutzen. Es ist so ein absolut entspanntes Fahrerlebnis! Mitfahrer, die wir auf der Tour kennengelernt haben, taten sich selbst mit dem eigentlich guten "bikeline" schwer und waren teilweise genervt. Die Einbindung der GPX-Daten ins Handy erfolgt über Apps, die im Netz teilweise kostenlos zur Verfügung stehen. Ich habe hierfür "Komoot" benutzt!

Münsterland eine sehr schöne Tour
Reisetour T 87171 Auf Anfrage bei einem ihrer Mitarbeiter (Rückenwindreisen) würden die Leihfahrräder im Starhotel bereitgestellt. Diese waren nicht im Starthotel zur Verfügung gestanden sondern mussten in der Mietstation am Bahnhof geholt werden. Mängel am Fahrrad wurdenfestgestell: 1.) Akku an einem Fahrrad defekt, keine Anzeige der Ladefunktion vorhanden. Am Tag darauf wieder zur Mietstation und auf meine Reklamation hin getauscht. 2.) Gangschaltung war nicht einwandfrei. 3.) Fahrradlenker war nicht ordentlich festgestellt, während der Tour löste er sich immer etwas. Konnte nicht behoben werden. Hotels waren soweit in Ordnung, bis auf das Hotel zur Post in Lüdinghausen. Das Zimmer beschreiben meine Frau und ich als " Zumutung". Als letzte Anmerkung wäre es von Vorteil, wenn auf der Tourenkarte auch kleinere Orte vermerkt wären, falls man sich einmal verfährt, daß man in etwa einen Anhaltspunkt hat an dem man sich orientieren könnte.
