HolidayTour Historic Town Centres

390 km through Westphalia

Do you love discoveries, like to conquer new terrain as a pedal knight, let the gables and alleys tell you stories and listen to stone witnesses from times long past? Then you've come to the right place on the Historic Town Centres Cycle Route: the approximately 390-kilometre tour through Münsterland and South Westphalia opens up a wide variety of perspectives. Sometimes gabled buildings bear witness to the medieval heyday of a town located on important trade routes. At other times, art and cultural-historical treasures hint at the former wealth of a region.

The historic town centres of Warendorf, Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Rietberg, Lippstadt, Soest, Werl, Werne, Steinfurt and Tecklenburg are strung togetherlike pearlson a necklace - "strung" on a green ribbon whose natural radiance lends the cycle route its special charm even beyond the historical facets. Surprises and distinctive experiences characterise the Historic Town Centres cycle route, which leads through a scenic and well-developed area for cycling tourism.
