Steinfurt's Bagno was once a huge "leisure park" - but that was more than 200 years ago. Unique at the time, the 50-hectare Bango Park attracted visitors with numerous attractions and a sea of flowers.
Until the beginning of the 19th century, the Bagno in Steinfurt was the most important park in Westphalia. Water features, unusual buildings, a large lake with boats and a court chapel known far beyond the borders of Münsterland defined the image of the park, which was redesigned time and again. Impressive buildings such as the Egyptian Tower, the Turkish Mosque and the Chinese Salon were part of the park's facilities.
Even today, the Bagno displays exceptional garden architecture: winding paths through sparse woods, densely overgrown banks or the overgrown island of ruins contrast with the clear forms of the avenues and squares. On a tour through the park, delightful and different perspectives open up again and again. 35 stations on current and long-gone sights are made accessible by a circular route. The park's crowning glory is the historic concert gallery, which hosts top-class musical events.
Some of the most interesting cycle routes in the region cross at Steinfurt Bagno. The 100 castles route meets the Aa-Vechte route and the cycle tour of the historic town centres. Cyclists can therefore easily include the Steinfurter Bagno in a stage tour. In any case, you should have the district educational garden, which is only a few minutes' drive away, on your holiday programme.
The Steinfurt Bagno is open and can be visited all day. The usual hygiene and distance rules apply when visiting the Steinfurt Bagno. The boat rental is closed.

The Bagno Park with the Concert Gallery borders directly on the famous moated castle of Steinfurt. The picturesque old town of Steinfurt-Burgsteinfurt is only a few metres away. Around the market square and in the narrow streets you can still find wonderful old houses and buildings. A stroll through Burgsteinfurt and a short break in one of the restaurants in the old town is definitely worthwhile.
