Three days - Round trip

Map of NRW

Wa­ter is the de­cis­ive ele­ment along the 3-Flüsse Route – and you would ex­pect noth­ing else with this name. The tour is prac­tic­ally pre­destined for all nature lov­ers, lead­ing dis­cern­ing cyc­lists along the Rheins, the Is­sel and the Lippe through a broad sec­tion of the Nieder­rhein. The ele­ment of wa­ter is en­countered at every turn, for ex­ample as the driv­ing force for his­tor­ic­al mills (Ben­ning­hoff wa­ter mill in Scherm­beck or the wa­ter mill at the moated castle in Gartrop). There are many op­por­tun­it­ies to en­joy the re­fresh­ing wa­ters along the en­tire route – for ex­ample on a boat tour on the paddle steam­er the River Lady, which is the only one on the Rhine, on a ca­noe tour on the Lippe or by vis­it­ing the Rhine baths in Wesel.

The route also has some cul­tur­al op­por­tun­it­ies to of­fer. How about a de­tour to vis­it the Pankok Mu­seum Haus Es­selt? This was where the paint­er, graph­ic artist and sculptor Otto Pankok lived and worked. For Otto Pankok, the land­scape was a lifelong theme. He cap­tured nu­mer­ous mo­tifs around Haus Es­selt in char­coal draw­ings. Today, vis­it­ors can be cre­at­ive too with the land­scape ruck­sack and fol­low the traces of Otto Pankoks on foot. The land­scape ruck­sack con­tains paint­ing utensils and vari­ous tasks for all ages. With the land­scape ruck­sack, a vis­it to the Otto Pankok Mu­seum be­comes an ex­cit­ing artist­ic ex­per­i­ence. The fin­ished work can of course be taken home as a souven­ir. The 3-Flüsse Route of­fers you an ex­cel­lently sign­posted net­work of routes and provides just the right at­trac­tion for all wa­ter lov­ers. After your tours, re­lax in ex­clus­ive 4* ho­tels.
