In the triad of horses, old town and nature


Warendorf presents itself to its visitors as a cosmopolitan town with charm. Those who love romantic town centres, cycling or riding are in good hands in the district town with its 40,000 inhabitants.

Warendorf - Germany's horse capital

Warendorf is the equestrian capital of Germany! It has gained international fame through the stallion parades and the federal championships. Horses are seldom found in such abundance as in the pastures around the town. At the annual stallion parades of the North Rhine-Westphalian State Stud, the stallions are presented in colourful displays and with breathtaking riding skills. The symphony of stallions is also a feast for the eyes and ears. You shouldn't miss it!!

Warendorf's old town enchants its visitors

A guided tour of the historic old town is also highly recommended. Warendorf's medieval market square alone is worth a visit. Strolling through the beautiful streets of the town centre, it is easy to forget the time. Idyllic cycle paths invite you to take a Pättkes tour: along the Ems or to picturesque Baunerhof cafés - a treat for all the senses. Some of the most beautiful cycle tours in the Münsterland come together in Warendorf: EmsRadweg, 100 Castles Route, Europaradweg R1.
