Cosmopolitan and tradition-conscious at the same time - Beckum is a town with many faces and exciting contrasts. A wide range of cultural and leisure activities, attractive shopping facilities and fine cuisine are the hallmarks of this town, which can look back on a history of over 750 years.
Beckum offers visitors sightseeing attractions such as the historic town hall dating from 1441 and the Provost Church of St. Stephen with Westphalia's most valuable reliquary. It is also worth taking a look at the museum smithy at the Kolpinghaus and visiting the Kreisständehaus in the Westenfeuermarkt park.
The surrounding area of Beckum is characterised by the Münsterland park landscape, but also by the cement industry, which is closely linked to the development of the town. The former quarries have been converted into attractive local recreation areas that are ideal for cycling. Or you can use the exciting route of the WERSE RADWEG. On the route to Oelde it even gets a little hillier. The reward is wonderful views over the Münsterland region.
