The name of the city says it all. The Ems, which runs in wide arcs through the city, is a defining feature. Cyclists can follow Germany's smallest river on the Ems cycle path . A great destination for a cycle tour is the Bentlage Monastery in Rheine. The numerous cycle paths offer many other circular tours by bike. The cycle paths in the direction of Steinfurt have almost no inclines. The moated castle and the old town are well worth a visit. A cycling tour to Ibbenbüren is much more sporty, as it takes you to the foothills of the Teutoburg Forest.
4,500 km of signposted cycle paths criss-cross the Münsterland. Emsdetten can also be reached via the practical junction system. With the junction system, you can easily put together your favourite route with a few numbers.
