Re­laxed cyc­ling in Mün­ster­land

A cyc­ling net­work of paths and zones

Cyc­ling by num­bers in Mün­ster­land: this mostly flat net­work of cycle paths of­fers good sign­post­ing, a wide range of places to eat and many in­ter­est­ing sights.

Anyone discovering Münsterland by bike can relax as they take in the beautiful park landscape with its small and large towns, castles and farms. The paths (known locally as “Pättkes”) are mostly flat and therefore perfect for leisure cyclists.

The region offers a total of 4,500 kilometres of cycle paths, divided into more than 200 circular routes with combinable lengths of 10 to 40 kilometres per circuit. Thanks to exceptionally good signposting, cyclists can be sure not to lose their way even without a map. Each sign is marked with two numbers and nearby destinations. The network of cycle paths splits Münsterland into various numbered zones. The paths mark the edge of zones and their signs bear the numbers of the two zones they border. Following any number will mean you circle a zone and automatically return to your starting point.

Depending on your stamina, time and inclination, this zone system allows shorter and longer routes to be combined and extended. The only time you need to get off your bicycle is when the hunger pangs strike. The cycling region of Münsterland offers numerous restaurants, cafés, guesthouses and inns along the way for this very purpose. And of course cycling is a great way to discover sights such as palaces, castles and gardens.

Further information on the zone system, themed routes and package deals are available from Münsterland e.V.’s website.
