Between the Berkel, nature reserves, forests and meadows, we invite you to enjoy boundless cycling. In a good mood through the Vreden countryside - an eventful weekend in the bike saddle awaits you!
Where the Münsterland meets the Netherlands lies Vreden. The German-Dutch border region amid idyllic nature is a cycling paradise. The network of hiking and cycling paths runs charmingly on this side and the other side of the Dutch border. The new network of junctions offers easy orientation - "cycling by numbers".
Known nationwide as the home of the flamingo, Vreden is culturally vibrant. In addition to rich nature, Vreden has impressive architecture from different eras and is home to interesting museums. At the Berkel power station, "bathers" become art, in the park the historic courtyard is worth seeing and at the market, young and traditional gastronomy are equally convincing. Five church villages with their special charm surround the town.

At the end of the tour, you can take a short break in the restaurant directly at the jetty. Experience Dutch hospitality with a Kopje Koffie met Appelgebak. After the transfer back to your starting point, you continue your cycle tour. On the second part of your circular tour, picturesque church villages and impressive natural landscapes that are part of the European bird sanctuary await you. The total length of the cycle tour is about 30 kilometres.
After an active day, you can enjoy the pleasures of the palate in the evening with typical Westphalian cuisine or a good glass of wine.
Today the pulsating life awaits you: After breakfast, the weekly market in the Dutch border town of Winterswijk invites you to take a stroll. Experience the lively market life, paired with Dutch sympathy. The market is surrounded by lively shopping streets with a varied range of products. Take a moment to enjoy the lively life from the terrace of the restaurant. You can reach Winterswijk after a short bike ride (approx. 11 kilometres) or by public transport (approx. 20-minute ride). Back in Vreden you can indulge in culture: three special museums look forward to your visit. Whether kult, Scherenschnittmuseum or Schuhmuseum, Vreden has an interesting offer.
