In the triad of horses, old town and nature


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

Horse and Ems town

Warendorf is the "horse metropolis" of the republic! For all horse and riding enthusiasts, a visit to the North Rhine-Westphalian State Stud is an absolute must. The state stud is the centre of horse breeding and equestrian sports. However, guided tours are also offered here. The institution has gained international fame through theStallion Parades - as well as the Federal Championships.

But Warendorf is not only a horse town, it is also an Ems town. If you are looking for relaxation by the water, the Emssee and the Emsseepark are just the right place.

Enchanting old town

A guided tour of the historic old town is also recommended; Warendorf's medieval market square alone is worth a visit. Strolling through the beautiful streets of the city centre, you can forget about time. It is worth stopping at the Franciscan church and the monastery, which is now home to the West Prussian Regional Museum. The Freckenhorst Castle and the Vinnenberg Monastery are also eye-catchers. The best way to discover the sights is on a cycle tour along idyllic cycle paths. Some of the most beautiful cycling tours in the Münsterland region come together in Warendorf: EmsRadweg, 100-Schlösser-Route, Europaradweg R1.
