Much more than church bells


Gescher in the western Münsterland offers all the prerequisites for beautiful holidays in the Münsterland. Numerous sights in and around Gescher and wonderful cycle paths through the flat but by no means boring landscape.

Large museum landscape in the small town of Gescher

It is rare to find 5 museums in the town centre and the immediate surroundings of a town. In Gescher, the well-known Westphalian Bell Museum, the Beekeeping Museum, the "Auf dem Braem" Museum Farm, the D(T)orfmuseum Hochmoor and the Hense Art Gallery provide a unique museum landscape. In addition, you can marvel at the living craft of bell casting in the bell foundry.

Gescher's lovable town centre

The 38-square-metre mural "Maskerade" in the town hall, which depicts scenes of the Gescheran carnival and is known far beyond the borders of the Münsterland region, is well worth seeing. Gescheran's town centre is rounded off by well-kept town houses, the spacious villas of the textile manufacturers and the church of St. Pankratius. Cosy restaurants, cafés and bistros in the town centre and farmhouse cafés in the surrounding area invite you to take a relaxing break.

A hub for cyclists

Numerous cycle routes meet in Gescher. The Flamingo Route as well as the river cycle paths along the Berkel, Aa and Slinge run through the municipal area of the municipality in the western Münsterland.
