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 four museums in the town centre and the immediate vicinity of a town. In Gescher, the well-known Westphalian Bell Museum, the Bee Museum, the museum farm "Auf dem Braem" and the D(T)orfmuseum Hochmoor 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 from 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.
