Borkener Landpartie

The Borkener Landpartie

The route connects the districts of the city of Borken and their homes. You leave the centre of Borken with its large market square and numerous historic towers in a southerly direction. After a short time you arrive in the village of Marbeck. The Marbeck Heimathaus is located in the immediate vicinity of the Borkener Aa. The quaint facility contains exhibitions of old agricultural implements as well as woodwork and handicrafts that can be viewed. After a stop in the lovingly laid out farm garden with its cosy bakehouse, the route continues westwards to the Pröbstingsee lake. The lake is the centrepiece of the Pröbsting recreation area with numerous recreational opportunities.

You leave the recreation area on the Bocholter Aa in a northerly direction. You will pass Haus Pröbsting. The former knight's estate is privately owned and now serves as a private clinic. Next, after a short drive, you will reach the village of Burlo. Here you will find the Mariengarden Oblate Monastery. The monastery was first mentioned by name in 1398 and is now a lovely destination for excursions, especially at weekends. Those who are particularly interested in untouched nature should visit the Burlo-Vardingholter Venn. The approx. 75-hectare raised bog fascinates with its extraordinary flora and fauna. Then continue on to the village of Weseke. Here, too, you will find a historic building. The Weseke Heimathaus is about 220 years old and displays old farming and household equipment. A geological garden has been laid out in the grounds. From Weseke you return to Borken through the Sternbusch, an extensive park. Before you return to the starting point of your cycle tour, you should definitely make a stop at the Gemen moated castle, which lies directly on the route.
