The Münsterland with a view


There are countless opportunities to explore the "Pearl of Westmünsterland" in all its facets and enjoy it with all your senses. Reken, with its various districts, blends harmoniously into the landscape of the region.

Discover Reken by bike

Cycle to Reken's landmark, the old windmill with its museum of local history, and visit the fortified church from the 12th century. You can also hike to the forest chapel at the gates of the village or enjoy the view from the observation tower on the Melchenberg. Here in the state-recognised health resort, you can explore the "Pättkes" of the five Reken districts on signposted 5-Herz tours. The central location makes it easy to go on day cycling tours to important castles and palaces in the surrounding area.

Excellent routes for Nordic walking

Why not visit the wild horses in the Merfelder Bruch? Here, in the idyllic setting of the Hohe Mark Nature Park, designated hiking trails make hikers' hearts beat faster. The Reken Nordic Walking Park, with its connection to the Hohe Mark Nordic Walking Park, ensures that you really get going.

Reken for families

Families can enjoy a pure holiday feeling in the renovated outdoor and indoor swimming pools, and the widely known Frankenhof wildlife park with its huge play area also lets parents relax quickly. On a horse-drawn carriage or covered wagon ride, you can experience Reken's unspoilt nature at first hand and visit numerous sights.
