The great small town


The around 1200-year-old pilgrimage town on the Ems is particularly inviting for cycling and lingering. The excellent cycle routes such as the EmsRadweg, the Peace Route or the 100-schloesser-route lead directly through the Ems town of Telgte.

Wallfahrtskapelle and the RELíGIO museum as outstanding destinations

The biggest attraction in Telgte is still the pilgrimage chapel with the 600-year-old Pietá in the northern old town. Around 100,000 pilgrims find their way to Telgte every year. In the immediate vicinity of the chapel is the RELíGIO - Westphalian Museum for Religious Culture. It is known beyond the region for its annually changing exhibition of nativity scenes during the winter season and the Telgte hunger cloth.


The old town is one of the most beautiful in Westphalia


Idyllic alleys, squares and niches in Telgte's historic old town also reflect the medieval structures and convey a particularly cosy atmosphere. The Westphalian and long-established gastronomy as well as lovingly run small specialist shops point to the high level of attachment of the citizens to their town. Telgte is also known for its wide-ranging cultural programme. The Mariä-Geburtsmarkt or the carriage pilgrimage are just a few more highlights that make the small town of Telgte a popular destination in Münsterland in many respects.

Telgte alone is of course worth a trip. But the town is also the perfect starting point for trips to Münster and Warendorf. You can easily reach both cities by bike or train
