Bike meets Fat Hen

Dear garden lovers, watch out!

These tours are a true paradise for lovers of green oases: A castle park, a modern garden with a pond, a lovingly designed perennial garden and a truly exceptional farm and herb garden are waiting to be explored by you!

DAY 1: Get on your bikes and explore a garden exhibition for pond lovers on the cycle path along the Bocholter-Aa. The Pättkes will then take you to the Heidefeld estate with its large park designed with great attention to detail in the style of 19th century English gardens. Here you are sure to come across the pretty "Fette Hennen"!

The tour continues to Anholt moated castle with its baroque gardens and impressive park. Stroll under the old trees, watch the local water birds and lose yourself in the maze or sniff the wildflower meadow!

In the evening, it's time to redeem your voucher for a restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal in Bocholt!

DAY 2: The 100 Castles Route takes you through the Münsterland parkland to Gemen moated castle. In the neighbourhood you can discover many special features in a varied and romantic perennial garden of 3000 square metres: a farmer's and herb garden, small ponds and water features, dry stone walls and a rock garden as well as fragrant roses and magnificent box hedges everywhere. On the way back, you will pass a monastery, nature reserves, the old manor house "Haus Kretier" and the Bocholt city forest.

After this active, sporty day, it's time for another delicious meal in Bocholt!

DAY 3: Exploring Bocholt's city centre is on the agenda today. Cafés, a lively and colourful weekly market in front of the historic town hall, picturesque shopping streets and the covered shopping centre Shopping-Arkaden offer a special shopping experience. An idyllic footpath along the Bocholter-Aa leads to the LWL-Museum Textilwerk: here you can experience clattering machines in the weaving mill and explore exciting, changing exhibitions in the spinning mill that tell the story of Bocholt's textile history.

Or perhaps you fancy another cycle tour? Then of course we have another excursion tip for you.

And if you're curious about an informative, digital stroll through the city, the Lauschtour app will guide you to the most famous sights. Have fun during your varied stay in Bocholt!
