Star tours with border enjoyment
On signposted paths.....
.... visit Bocholt's neighbours on this side and the other side of the border. Discover the idyllic and varied surroundings of our city.
DAY 1: After a welcome drink at your hotel near the city centre, get on your bike. The Hohe Mark Cycle Route takes you past Bocholt's Aasee lake - one of the largest leisure facilities in the Münsterland region - to the Dingdener Heide nature reserve and our pretty neighbouring town of Rhede.
We then return to Bocholt through the Bocholt municipal forest. Here you can end the day with a cosy dinner in one of Bocholt's many restaurants. (short tour approx. 35 km).
DAY 2: The Flamingo Route takes you to the moorland waters of the Burlo-Vardingholter Venn and along old smugglers' paths towards Oeding. Cross the Green Border and continue to the Dutch nature reserve Bekendelle. Here the Boven-Slinge meanders picturesquely through Winterswijk's oldest forest. Be sure to stop at the old water mill! Lekker kopje koffie met gebak!
Winterswijk is known for a varied shopping offer, the market with its fish, cheese and vegetable stalls is a popular destination on this bike tour. In the evening you can redeem your second meal voucher in a cosy Bocholt restaurant. (53 km)
DAY 3: If you fancy another great bike ride: The idyllic Bocholter Aa cycle path takes you to the climbing forest at Pröbstingsee. Then turn off to the romantic Gemen moated castle. You return along an old railway line, through the Prinzenbusch in Rhede and the Bocholt city forest. (50 km)
Fancy a look at our sights? With our Lauschtour app (in the Google Play Store or Apple App Store) you can get an idea on your own. Our most beautiful building is definitely the Historic Town Hall at the Markt - right in the centre.
