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 gastronomy characterise this town, which can look back on a history of more than 750 years.
Visitors to Beckum can take in sights such as the historic town hall dating from 1441 or the Provost Church of St. Stephanus with Westphalia's most valuable reliquary. Also worthwhile are a look at the museum smithy at the Kolpinghaus, a visit to the Kreisständehaus in the "Westenfeuermarkt" park or the cement museum.
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 WerseRadweg. On the route to Oelde it even gets a little hillier. The reward is wonderful views over the Münsterland region. You will also pass the breathtaking Blue Lagoon nature reserve along the way.
Don't forget the Phoenix activity park with its adventure playground, disc golf course, climbing wall and more. Again, the Höxberg with its beautiful windmill promises great views and lots of nature. The Tuttenbrock recreational lake offers excellent swimming and sports facilities.
