Search­ing for the “key to hap­pi­ness”

Nieder­rhein Tour­is­mus GmbH

Three days - ra­di­al tour

Map of NRW

The day be­gins with a cosy break­fast in a re­laxed at­mo­sphere. Let your spir­it run free and al­low your­self to be in­spired by a whole load of “Gedöns” at the eponym­ous café. Upon de­par­ture, buy a lov­ingly hand­made item. Every vis­it re­veals new cre­at­ive mo­ments.

Then start the day feel­ing lively and in­vig­or­ated. “The greatest hap­pi­ness on Earth is sit­ting in the saddle of a steel horse”, or something sim­il­ar might be the motto on the bi­cycle tour on the apple green Nieder­rhe­in­Rädern, be­cause move­ment makes you happy! Dis­cov­er hap­pi­ness while cyc­ling or hik­ing, as well as your per­son­al happy place in the nat­ur­al sur­round­ings and in the town of Wassen­berg. Every happy place is a chal­lenge and con­tains tips for be­ing happy. The crown­ing con­clu­sion to the tour is the Bergfried, the key to which awaits at the vis­it­ors’ centre. En­joy the breath­tak­ing ex­pans­ive views from this view­ing tower, find peace, breath deeply and en­joy the fresh air, safe in the know­ledge that you have the “key to hap­pi­ness” in your hand.

Leave the stresses of every­day life be­hind in the even­ing at the res­taur­ant “by Sa­vio” with a glass of wine and a 4 course meal, then snuggle up in a freshly made bed at the time-hon­oured Burg Wassen­berg and, the next morn­ing, as the crown­ing con­clu­sion to the search for the “key to hap­pi­ness”; you can even take a little bit of hap­pi­ness home in the form of a hap­pi­ness bag.
