A desire for winter walks: New edition of the hiking map published by Münsterland e.V.

MUNSTERLAND. The Münsterland is wonderfully wide and very flat - and thus a paradise for hikers. On a total of around 3,000 kilometres of hiking trails, unforgettable tours can be experienced here. That's why Münsterland e.V. has now reissued its overview map - as inspiration for an extended hiking trip in summer, but also for tours in winter.

The map contains tips and interesting facts as well as short descriptions of the nine hiking routes listed. A Münsterland map with the routes marked accordingly also provides a direct overview. In addition to well-known trails such as the Hermannsweg or the Westfälischer-Friede-Weg, popular hiking routes such as the Teutoschleifen are also included. They comprise eight premium trails of between six and 13 kilometres, which line up along the Hermannsweg in the Teutoburg Forest. On the still quite young Max Clemens Canal Hiking Trail, extensive sections through forest and field alternate with parts of the Max Clemens Canal.

In addition to hiking, walking does not have to be completely omitted in winter: When it's freezing cold, the Münsterland region is great to explore on foot. Tips for wonderful winter walks from the heights of the Tecklenburger Land to the moors in the valley of the Lippe can be found at And because it's easy to get hungry when walking through the cold, Münsterland e.V. has suitable tips, including a recipe for a wonderful winter picnic, at - typically Münsterland, healthy and delicious.

"With this all-round carefree package, Münsterland on foot is a great experience even in winter," says Michael Kösters, general representative and tourism expert at Münsterland e.V..

Münsterland e.V. was supported in the creation of the overview map by Westfälischer Heimatbund e.V., which is responsible for the hiking trail network in Münsterland. The association also has a number of hiking tips that can be found at and in the free app "Wanderwege im Münsterland" (Hiking trails in Münsterland).

The overview map can be ordered free of charge from the Münsterland e.V. Tourism Centre on 02571 949392 or online at or downloaded as a PDF.
