The Dörenther Cliffs, one of the most famous landmarks in Münsterland, are the focus of the hike on the premium hiking trail near Ibbenbüren. The extended hike is also a pleasure for ambitious hikers. The 9.3-kilometre circular trail climbs 405 metres.
The starting point is the "Dörenther Klippen" hikers' car park near the Ibbenbüren summer toboggan run . It's a relatively steep climb right away, with a beautiful mixed forest providing restful shade. The signposted hiking trail leads to the cemetery of honour, which commemorates the crossing of the Dörenther Klippen by the Allies during the Second World War.
A few metres further on (at the resting mushroom) there is the option of shortening the hike to 5.8 kilometres. However, it is nicer to hike further into the beautiful Bocketal valley. There are several restaurants where you can take a break during your hike. The path leads you uphill to the Hermannsweg and thus also to the Dörenther Cliffs. The region, which is under nature conservation, impresses with its magnificent rock formations. The highlight, however, is definitely the "Squatting Woman", which is the subject of a tragic legend. According to the legend, it is a mother turned to stone who saved her children from the approaching floods. Before you reach the car park again, the alpine hut invites you to take a break with a magnificent view .
