Relax and take in the beauty and tranquility of Voerde as you stroll along the banks of the Rhine River. 15 kilometers of gorgeous landscape follows along the edge of the river, giving you a true look into the German countryside. To really get lost in that natural feeling, you can head over and wander through the Mommbachniederung nature preserve.
While it is a developing city, Voerde’s rural roots remain strong, allowing you to experience both the outdoors and a little bit of city life.
If you’re interested in getting the old blood flowing you can go for a run or a hike in the Wohnungswald forest or through the stunning park that graces the land surrounding the historic Haus Voerde mansion, complete with moat.
If water sports are more to your liking you can take out a trusty rowboat or canoe and paddle around, or cast a fishing line into the Rhine River, the Lippe, or the canal.
After exploring the nature sites you can wander about the town center and the multitude of newly established shops that line the streets. Or take in the new business buildings and municipal park that are all new additions to the growing city.
To satisfy any curiosities about the local history head over to the Krickerhauer Heimatstube and let your mind swell with knowledge. Take a look at the church at Götterswickerhamm in order to catch a glimpse of some truly beautiful architecture.
If you are looking to engage in some cultural activities try and make it to Voerde between May 29 and June 2 for the annual Whitsun Equestrian tournament. And for winter vacations there’s always a Christmas market where you can peruse the goods in search of some uniquely German items — while enjoying a glass of Glühwein, or two, or three. :-)
