A glance at the Dyckerhoff Lake in Beckum makes you think you've landed in the Caribbean. But this is actually Münsterland! Because of its turquoise water, the body of water is also called the "Blue Lagoon". The nature reserve, consisting of a biotope lake and a landscape lake, is a former limestone quarry. The two lakes are separated by a cycling and hiking path, on which both the Werse cycle path and the cement route run. The quiet area around the lake invites recreation-seekers to take relaxing walks, linger or go cycling.
To allow the nature reserve to develop undisturbed, there is a year-round ban on entering and using the biotope lake. Access to and use of the landscape lake is prohibited from 1 April to 31 October. From 1 November to 31 March there is a ban on entering and using the lake between 10 pm and 6 am. In addition, certain rules of conduct apply here, which you can read on the website of the City of Beckum. This means that walking and cycling is still possible here at any time - as long as you use the existing paths. The shore, for example, is not part of this.
