    Cycling tip - Stevern

    Stevern, old mill with brook

    Very romantic spot - possibly an old water mill with water running into a small pond. Worth a visit. Go west from Münster-Roxel in the direction of Tilbeck (L 843) and Schapdetten. After Schapdetten turn right (north) to Stevern. Or consult map Freizeitkarte NRW #4 (Münster, Tecklenburger Land).

    Cycling tip - Schloss Hülshoff

    Schloss H��lshoff

    This is where the famous German poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff was born. This castle can in fact be visited, but we were here during the winter season in early March and could not enter the castle grounds. I had to make this picture through the iron gate.

    A Castle You Should Not Miss!

    Burg Vischering Entry Gate
    2 more images

    Burg Vischering is an old and very well perserved castle just south of Munster. It is complete with a moat and a drawbridge! It has a museum in what used to be the stables and adults as well as kids will certainly enjoy this one!

    It was built in 1270 and is furnished with furniture pieces from those eras.

    TIP: I have added all of my photos from that burg but I wish I had taken more. Take lots of photos here or you might wish you had taken more too! *smile*

    Lepramuseum Munster Kinderhaus

    by Nantosvelta Updated Aug 10, 2004

    I haven't been here yet but I hope to change that some day.
    Leprosy is still a big problem in a lot of countries. Medicines are freely available but patients still have to deal with the stigma.
    Hopefully this museum will help people understand that leprosy is a curable disease and not the revenge from God for a sinful life.

    if you come in summer (which can in fact be quite nice in Münster!) then check out the Channel, it's a nice place for sunbathing, swimming (strictly forbidden, but who cares..., barbecues and partying.
    If you're not into hanging around on a blanket, then you might want to have a nice icecold Radler on the lovely terrace of the 'Luf', overlooking the harbour. Especially at sunset it's sooo romantic!

    Teutogurger Wald, to the north east of Muenster. You can take a combination of train and bus to arrive in Tecklenburg, a lovely small city on the ridge in between the forest. The ruins of a castle overview the city center which is on sheer alignment of nice wooden houses. We went for some autumn leaves.. and we got some. Even though it was raining, this was a perfect trip in the forests around the city.

    Haus Havixbeck. This castle cannot be visited - but I guess they don't mind that this picture ends up in our scrapbook. To be found on the western edge of the village of Havixbeck (west of Münster)
