Borken has that elusive quality that entices visitors to slow down and delve deeper. It’s just as the wise ones have said, “Look beyond what you see.” That’s when you realize you’ve come to a place like none other.
The North Rhine-Westphalia region has many exquisite areas that enthrall visitors, but when you come to Borken be prepared to be taken by surprise… yet again.
Borken is located very close to the Dutch border and this actually presents plenty of opportunities in itself. Here’s your chance to experience a culture that has shades of other cultures interwoven into its fabric.
Take the Jugenberg Gemen for instance. What strikes you immediately is the unique tower in the shape of a cathedral bell that you rarely see in other areas. Here’s an exquisite piece of architecture that invites exploration.
For a fix of culture, head for the Stadtmuseum which is where you’ll see an eclectic collection of art housed in impressive surroundings. The building has worn many hats in the past from king’s residence to Town Hall and so, there’s plenty here to keep your curiosity perked up.
For extravaganzas from all over the world in a mindboggling variety from concerts to animated flicks, visit the Stadt der Türme. There’s always something exciting going on and you won’t be disappointed.
You simply cannot leave Borken without visiting the Playland at least once; especially so, if you have kids in tow. Here’s your chance to try your luck at the casino or shoot some pool, or simply up your scores at the various computer games at the internet terminals. You simply won’t realize how time flies once you’re in there, so you might as well set aside a whole day for this venue.
