Travel days

1. Day: arrival - Münster

Individual arrival to Münster. The Prinzipal market, the historic townhall with the Friedenssaal hall and the former monarch episcopal castle are worth a visit.

2. Day: Münster - Schöppingen (approx. 54 km)

Barely in the saddle, as you already reach the picturesquely embedded water castle Burg Hülshoff with the "Droste museum". You cycle on idyllic small paths, past the house Havixbeck and through the green Munsterland parkland. Soon enough, you arrive at the pilgrimage destination Eggerode, a town decorated with flowers with the worth seeing Chapel of Grace.

3. Day: Schöppingen - Zwillbrock (approx. 57 km)

You cycle past secluded farms to Ahaus. Pay a visit to the splendid baroque water castle. On small cycle paths, you ride to Ledgen and into the worth seeing townlet Verden. You reach the natural reserve "Zwillbrocker Venn" at the Dutch border. Here, you can admire mire crows and flamingos.

4. Day: Zwillbrock - Bocholt (approx. 49 km)

You cycle over the hardly visible border to Holland, where the landscape image changes and the houses appear to be cuter. Via avenues, cycle paths and small farming trails, you cycle to Winterswijk and through the “antiquarian city “ Bredevoort, before you leave Holland and reach Bocholt.

5. Day: Bocholt - Coesfeld (approx. 63 km)

Today, you cycle idyllically along the small rivulet Aa. Look forward to the water castle Gemen in Borken and in the evening to the brewery museum Stephanus in Coesfeld.

6. Day: Coesfeld - Lüdinghausen (approx. 54 km)

The route leads gently up and down through the Baumberge, the only elevation in the Münster region. The baroque town core of Nottuln is an attraction. Subsequently, you reach the fortress Kakesbeck (private property) via the castle Senden. In Lüdinghausen, the medieval fortified castle "Burg Vischering" is worth a visit.

7. Day: Lüdinghausen - Münster (approx. 56 km)

The highlight of your journey is the Nordkirchen castle, the “Westphalian Versailles”. You remain on the beautiful 100-castles-route throughout the day and cycle past House Romberg, House Byink and the castle tower of Davensberg to Münster.

8. Day: Münster - departure

Individual departure from Münster.
