Sandy soil and wetlands as well as delightful contrasts within a few kilometres shape the picture of the varied landscape around the Vechte municipality of Metelen. The countryside around Metelen is wide and lush green.

Wonderful cycle paths

Metelen is also worth loving and experiencing because of its leisure activities: from the Dino Zoo Metelen to great cycling opportunities. The Vechte Valley Route stretches from Metelen to the Netherlands, and cyclists should definitely take cycling tours to Steinfurt with its wonderful castle or to Schöppingen. This results in a multitude of day tours that make Metelen a worthwhile holiday destination.

Museums look back on Metelen's history

As in many other towns, the textile industry was an important pillar of the economy in Metelen for a long time. The Metelen-Land railway station with its railway museum and the Ackerbürger Haus still bear witness to this today. Plagemanns Mühle is located directly on the Vechte. After a turbulent past, the mill and creel museum has found its home here.
