Rheda-Wiedenbrück Things to Do

  • Castle in Rheda

    The castle in Rheda is surrounded by some water and is still inhabited by a prince. You can visit the castle only by a guided tour on a Sunday or holiday, actual information can be found on the webpage.I cannot say that the exterior of the castle looks interesting and I haven’t been inside, but the park is nice and there’s a rose garden close by....

  • Fuchshöhle (Fox den)

    This house with the nice rococo gate was build 1586 by Johannes Hesing and his wife Magdalena Ostberg, one year after the huge burning of Wiedenbrück. You’ll find their names in the sayings.Also very interesting in the Latin saying just over the gate is that it has some letters highlighted by being bigger than the others. These letters are Roman...

  • Haus Ottens

    This half-timbered house is called House Ottens and was build 1635.Very special for the half-timbered houses in Wiedenbrück are the long sayings on them. I hadn’t seen this before. These sayings are either in German (in a local dialect) or in Latin and are mostly of a religious nature. The one on these house asks God to protect the house against...

  • Lange Strasse

    Wiedenbrück has lots of nice half-timbered houses. Some can be found at the street “Lange Strasse” (long street) which you can see here on the photo. There are lots of interesting carvings on the houses. Very typical are the round arch gates which were big enough to let pass the vehicle with the crop. Next to these gates, you mostly find the year...

  • Playgrounds at the park ‘Flora...

    There are several playgrounds in the park. One is a “water playground” with lots of sand, I guess you have to wash your children very well afterwards! Then there is the one of the picture, with something to climb, a climb and some other things. And finally there’s the so-called “Spielerei”, with water again, a little petting zoo, a pool with tubs,...

    If you want to eat some ice cream, you should go to Eis Toldo. It's not surprising that there are queues on hot days as the ice cream is really good! It's close to the park Flora Westfalica and the lake, so it's perfect to go for a walk in the park and afterwards enjoy an refreshing ice cream.

    Rheda-Wiedenbrück is easy to reach by car as it’s located next to the highway A2 (Dortmund – Hannover). In fact, Rheda and Wiedenbrück are separated by this highway. The exit is called Rheda-Wiedenbrück, afterwards just follow the signs to either Rheda or Wiedenbrück.

    You also can reach Rheda-Wiedenbrück by train. There’s a train station in Rheda which connects the city with Hamm and Bielefeld.

    Next airport is in Paderborn (35 km). There’s no direct train from there (there had been an train route but it’s a cycle track now!), probably train and bus would be the best option. For schedules see www.bahn.de.

    The region is ideal for inline skating and bicycling as there are lots of local cycle tracks. The area around Rheda-Wiedenbrück is really flat, so it’s quite easy to skate and cycle! Also, there are several long distance cycle tracks:
    - Wellness Radroute (Wellness Cycle Track)
    - Hellweg-Weser Cycle Track
    - LandesGartenSchau-Route (Garden Festival Track)
    - Ems-Radweg (Ems Cycle Track), along the river Ems

    For Inlineskating, I can recommend the track from Wiedenbrück in direction Paderborn. We went until Rietberg (8 km). The track has been a train route in former times. You don't notice much of it, though, we only saw a gate once.
