With its idyllic romantic pättkes, Laer is considered an ideal starting point for cycling tours in the surrounding area. Situated in the heart of the Münsterland, the small and quiet town offers very nice opportunities for excursions to the surrounding castles and towns. Of course, Laer itself is also worth discovering.
The Ewaldibach ripples through charming Laer in a unique way. At the centre of the village hustle and bustle is the old Schulzenhof Welling - now the town hall - with its town hall square, an old granary and mill tower, with spacious park and pond areas. In the Holsken Museum, visitors can learn about the history and craft of the clog makers. Laer's townscape is dominated by the mighty St. Bartholomew's Church, which is well worth seeing.
During a stay in Laer, there are almost endless possibilities for excursions. Steinfurt Castle, the Sasse Distillery in Schöppingen or Hülshoff Castle in Havixbeck are just a few examples of beautiful destinations for tours by bike or car.
