Emsbüren folk obviously love to cycle and so they have this incredible network of cycling routes laid out over and around some of the most scenic spots you can imagine.
The shores of the Ems River and the Dortmund-Ems Canal lends itself perfectly to this and other outdoor activities which means that if you’re in Emsbüren and have a bike you’re going to have a great time. If not, get aboard the La Paloma, a quaint old boat with a roof that takes you on gentle rides down the Ems.
For those that like more than two wheels on their vehicles there are, of course, plenty to do and see. Go for a scenic ride along the waterway or explore the lovely countryside where time seems to really stand still. I mean how laidback can some folk get.
