Wild horses, Anna Katharina Emmerick, pilgrimage trails, street theatre and cycle paths - these are just some of the attractions Dülmen has to offer. Whether you prefer nature or culture, want to do sports or simply relax, enjoy rural seclusion or urban hustle and bustle: Dülmen has it all.
The forest, heath and meadow areas and the wild horse enclosure with more than 300 free-roaming horsesin the Merfelder Bruch make a trip into the countryside a unique experience. Of course, you can also take your bike to the wild horses - after all, Dülmen is on the Münsterland cycle path network and offers many possibilities as a starting point, from a one-day tour to a cycle tour lasting several days.
In Dülmen itself, thousands are drawn every year to the memorial and grave of the beatified Anna Katharina Emmerick. The nun had mystical visions in which she lived through the Passion of Christ every Friday.
Unforgettable experiences and relaxation are offered by the leisure centre "Joy'n Us", the leisure pool "düb" and the vitality centre "Die Sauna Insel". So in the end there is hardly any time left for a stroll through the lively centre of Dülmen.
