Through the Füchtorfer Moor | Tour tip for riders

This day ride in the district of Warendorf leads, among other places, to the Füchtorfer Moor. Riders can look forward to a 17 kilometre long and very varied round. The course leads through forest, pastures and a former moor landscape.

Harkotten Castle - a fairytale castle along the way

The western section of this day tour leads along the Fichtenbusch forest area, which is part of the Subbern landscape conservation area. Further on, the route leads to the Elver Bach stream in Füchtorf. Shortly afterwards, there are two places to stop for refreshments, each of which requires a short detour from the route. Both the "Tüsken de Eeken" farm café, which belongs to the Buddenkotte organic farm, and in the "Wappensaal" of the Harkotten double castle complex, steed and rider can take a break with homemade cakes, hot meals and other delicacies.

After refreshments, the Münsterland park landscape with views of the Teutoburg Forest can be enjoyed all the better. The flat route then continues along an avenue of trees several kilometres long. The eastern section of the trail alternates between woods and meadows through the Rippelbaum landscape conservation area. The southern tip offers a special conclusion with a ride through a former moor landscape before returning to the starting point.
