Welcome to the Münsterland
A paradise for short stay holiday makers
The Münsterland is famous for its landscape and its rich cultural history. Nature friends should not miss the Zwillbrocker Venn (Zwillbrock moor) with its most northern flamingo breeding area. The Merfelder Bruch near Dülmen is also unique, because Germany’s last wild horses live here on approximately 350 hectare!
However, snickering horses are not the only part of the Münsterland, but also bells which greet the visitor from the church towers. There are fine-sounding details in the Bell Museum in Gescher – one of many fascinating museums which are a few steps from here. Especially exciting is the “Living Musuem” in Velen, which invites on five locations to exciting time travels into the past. The Rock and Pop Music Museum in Gronau is also easily accessible from Velen.
Cyclists really like the Münsterland. You can travel effortless gliding through the flat landscape – on your way to water castles, old abbeys and welcoming inns. Perhaps, you prefer also to walk to enjoy pure nature. Adjacent to the SportSchloss, there is the 55 hectare large zoological garden, a magnificent country park which was for the first time mentioned in 1707.
