Picnicking in beautiful and untouched nature. This is probably one of the most beautiful ideas for an excursion. And it gets even more exciting at a place that is unique in Europe. The wild horse track in Dülmen is one of the last places in Europe where visitors can still observe wild horses. And how wonderful it is that visitors can enjoy this setting during a relaxed picnic. In the middle of the extensive forest and meadow areas is a large picnic area with several seating options. A great place to slow down, observe and discover.
The approx. 3.2 square kilometre nature reserve in the Merfelder Bruch is characterised by its diverse flora and original vegetation. In this way, the wild horses find exactly the varied habitat they need without having to make do with human help. Observing the horses in their natural environment and in their original herd behaviour is also a unique experience for families with children. The wonderful nature in the Mehrfelder Bruch also invites you to take extensive walks and short cycling tours in the surrounding area.
To the wild horse track
The area with the free-roaming wild horses is located about 12 kilometres west of Dülmen on the road from Dülmen (via Merfeld) to Borken (L600). The access road is called "Zur Wildpferdebahn". The ticket office is also located on this access road. There is a car park directly on the grounds of the wild horse track in the Merfelder Bruch. The picnic area is a few minutes' walk from the car park.
