Horses and nature around Dülmen

The circular cycle route 142 starts in the centre of Dülmen and first leads through the picturesque Dülmen Game Park with mixed forest, clearings, ponds and pools where, with a bit of luck, you can observe red deer and fallow deer. The cycle tour continues through a small pine forest and the beautiful lowlands of the Merfelder Bruch to the only game stud farm in Europe. A visit to the more than 350 wild horses is an impressive experience (only at weekends). The horses, which are protected as a natural monument, are left to their own devices on about 400 hectares. Particularly worth seeing on the way back is the rhododendron park in Welte, which turns into a fairytale-like, colourful sea of blossoms in spring. From here, the route leads past idyllically situated farmsteads back to Dülmen.
