We say thank you for 600 entries to our photo competition "Autumn Lights in Münsterland". Great landscape shots, autumnal pictures of castles and palaces and places marked by colourful autumn colours are just some of the motifs sent in.

Many thanks to the sponsors and partners:
At the end of the cycling season, we go on a grand tour once again. The northern course of the 100 Castles Route takes you from Münster to the autumn-framed castles and palaces in the northern Münsterland. While nature around the Ems and Vechte rivers still hints at late summer, the hills of the Tecklenburg region are already dressed in autumn.
Small and large natural wonders await you on a cycle tour along the NaTourismus Route. Mysterious moors, fantastic panoramic views, colourful forests and tranquil lakes - hardly any other cycle tour lets you feel the change of the seasons more strongly.
The Sandstone Route takes you through the heart of the region. Magnificent castles among colourful autumn leaves, yellow mustard fields under a blue sky and gentle hills with distant views characterise your cycle tour through the Baumberge. Here you are far away from everyday life.
Follow in the footsteps of history on a cycle tour along the cycle path of the historic town centres. Let yourself be enchanted nine times by magnificent churches, small chapels, stately merchants' houses and unique half-timbered buildings. And what could be nicer than enjoying the last warm sunny days of the year on a historic market square at the end of the day?
Take some time out from everyday life and relax!
What could be more beautiful than riding your own horse through autumnal nature? The sun breaks through the light canopy of the forests and makes the autumn leaves shine. Fields and meadows allow wide views of small towns and stately farmsteads. Combine your routes to suit your taste.
Do you prefer to explore nature by bike? Then beautiful routes to wild horses, through lovely villages and to legendary landscapes await you. Perfect for a completely relaxed day in the Münsterland.
Hikers are spoilt for choice. Do you want to climb the heights of the Dörenther Cliffs or would you rather take a leisurely stroll through a park? In any case, your hiking trip will always be a very special moment, which you can combine to your heart's content with culinary delights at a picnic.
