Spring time has arrived: near Warendorf


Once again, I started in beautiful sunshine. I cycled from Frecrkenhorst to Warendorf on the 100 Schloesser (=castles)-Route which is about 8k long but sooooooooooo much nicer than cycling along the busy main road.




we are in horse country


The whole cycling day was totally nice and relaxed: the road was smooth, the route markers in place - and correct, so I could enjoy the surroundings....




little green spider: my companion for one day


....and my new found friend, the green little spider, that stayed with me until I arrived at my guest house in Muenster.






Muenster city limit sign


When I arrived at this sign, I thought I was almost there BUT then came the additional 10 k, all the way around Muenster (this is also not on my track) to Angelmodde a suburb of Muenster.








Statue at the Aa stream: a quiet place in a busy city

In the afternoon I cycled the 7k into town, nevertheless, and experienced a culture shock: after the laid-back and relaxed towns at the Weser, I expected something similar for Muenster.

But not at all: the city is totally busy and - for me - hectic. I knew that Muenster is - together with Freiburg - THE German bicycle town but I didn't know about their stressful behavior and was a bit overwhelmed. Also, I had imagined the city much smaller.

I let myself drift through the town center, usually not knowing where I am and not finding anything worth taking a picture, except for this statue in a bit less hectic area behind the cathedral.
