Ahlen - Through the Münsterland Park Landscape

You start the cycle tour at the town hall in Ahlen and follow the Werse out of town, past the Westfalen colliery and the leafy Osthalde. After leaving the Werse to the north, you reach the small community of Vorhelm. There you can visit "Haus Vorhelm", a small castle complex from the 15th century with baroque elements. If you continue to follow the route northwards, shortly before Sendenhorst you will reach the "Hardtteiche", these old gravel pits are now a nature reserve with lush vegetation. Take advantage of this special landscape for a short recreational break. The town of Sendenhorst offers you a variety of gastronomic options and architectural sights along the route. Before you leave Sendenhorst behind you, you should make a stop at the observation tower "am Himmelreich". This offers viewers a magnificent view over Sendenhorst and the Münsterland park landscape. On the following kilometres you will cycle through a picturesque landscape with many small streams. Experience the typical Münsterland farming communities before you meet the Werse again shortly before Ahlen, which accompanies you to the starting point of this route. Due to its length and the numerous charging stations along the route, the cycle tour is also suitable for e-bike riders.
