Leisure in Münsterland: cycling, riding, picnicking and much more besides

It never gets boring in Münsterland! Because the residents themselves love to go on excursions, be outdoors and discover the many castles, palaces, gardens and parks.

We are an active region

The more than 4500 kilometre long network of cycle routes offers ideal conditions for the most beautiful tours through Münsterland. Palaces and castles, gardens and parks, towns and historic centres, the Münsterland park landscape and much more are perfect destinations for excursions.

"The happiness of the earth, lies on the back of horses ..." This proverb fits perfectly with the Münsterland as one of the most equestrian regions in Germany. Around 1000 kilometres of bridle paths allow you to discover the beauty of the region on horseback.

Münsterland is picnic country. Nowhere else will you find so many perfect picnic spots where you can picnic in such a beautiful and cultivated way. Take a little culinary time out and sample the regional specialities in the open air.

Whether by bike, on horseback, on foot or in a completely different way: experience THE GOOD LIFE in Münsterland in all its facets.

This is how Münsterland tastes

Whether you're cycling, riding or doing other exciting activities in Münsterland, you'll get hungry at some point. But luckily there are many nice restaurants, pubs and cafés in Münsterland for a stop in the beer garden or for a coffee and a piece of cake. You can find a selection here .

Or how about a picnic? You can have that packed directly by the restaurateurs in many exciting places - for time out by the river, in front of the monastery, in a vintage car or with alpacas. Or you can simply take care of your own catering. We not only have great picnic recipes for you, we also show you where to get delicious regional products for your picnic basket - in the numerous farm shops in the region. Often with a look into the barn, the kitchen or the production included.
