This European reserve is located about 6 km north of the city centre of Münster on the border to the district of Steinfurt. As a habitat to many rare animal and plant species, here you can expect an extraordinary nature experience. You can explore the area on foot or by bike via one of the circular routes and study the birds from the numerous observation facilities.
Address: Biologische Station, Coermühle 181, 48157 Münster.

Do you want to explore the city or the surrounding area by bike? You can rent a “leeze” from us for €8, as the bike is lovingly called here.
