Surrounding Area

Our house lies in Tecklenburger land in the northern part of Muenster parkland between Westerkappeln and Tueoettendorf Mettingen. At the end of a quiet, dead-end lane you will find both vacation homes in the upper level of our home, which is in close proximity to the long distance trail called Tueoettenweg.

The diverse, hilly landscape between the offshoots of the Wiehen alps and the Teutoburger forest, with mountain ranges of the Metterner, Switerland just south from Westerkappeln lends itself to bicycling, hiking, walking or taking a carriage ride.

Away from the hussle and bustle, in the Duesterdieker Niederung, you can discover and enjoy – arguably the biggest marsh area – the protected area of Nordrhein-Westfalens untouched nature.
