A picnic at the monastery, a hike or a horseback ride: the Benedictine monastery Gerleve in Billerbeck is a quiet place of longing in the middle of the Baumberge and welcomes all active tourists. Combine your picnic with a hike on the Ludgerusweg or a ride on the official bridle path network .
The Münsterland riding route leads directly to the Benedictine monastery of Gerleve with a short detour. Horse and rider are very welcome: There are trees to tie up to and something to drink for the horses. You can enjoy your picnic on the picnic benches directly at the monastery.
There is a large car park on the grounds of Gerleve Abbey. However, this is not a trail riders' car park, nor is it a car park for harnesses, but only for cars.
For example, the B6 circular hiking trail passes the monastery.
Gerleve Abbey can also be reached by bicycle. The Sandstone Route and the Circular Cycle Route 84 pass close to the monastery.
