The chapel of Affhüppen, the Bentheimer Turm and the Lake Emssee are three good reasons to travel to Warendorf by campervan. Warendorf is located in the north of North Rhine-Westphalia and has about 40,000 inhabitants. The town also became famous for the stallion parades that the North Rhine-Westphalian state stud organises here once a year.
Due to its direct location on the Ems in the Münsterland region, the city is also attracting more and more nature lovers. The Westphalian lowland bay offers a very diverse landscape. Fields, meadows, pastures and forests alternate here.
The Münsterland Park Landscape, as the region is often called, is excellent to explore in a campervan. The winding paths through the fields and meadows are very suitable for hiking. Münster is the nearest large city and also worth a visit.
It is only 30 km away from Warendorf and easy to reach by campervan in half an hour. Osnabrück and Bielefeld are also worthwhile destinations for a day trip. The two cities are about 40 km away.
The name of the town probably goes back to the Saxon village of Warantharpa. It originated around 700 AD. Warendorf was first mentioned as a town as early as 1197. The church of St. Laurentius also dates from this time.
Over the centuries, the town developed into an important trading centre because of its good geographical location. The trade routes went as far as Lübeck. Linen was the main product here. The richer merchants built houses on the market square and in Emsstraße.
The Münsterland lies 65 metres above sea level and is moderately warm. The average annual temperature is 10.5 degrees Celsius. The best time for a campervan holiday is between June and September.
With a temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, August is the warmest month of the year. The camping season starts at the end of May, when there is no more frost at night. You can expect plenty of sunshine right into autumn.
The months between November and March are not necessarily suitable for sleeping in a campervan. It gets particularly cold at night in winter. The coldest month is January with temperatures around 3 degrees Celsius.
Compared to other German towns, the region receives a relatively high amount of rainfall. Precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year. The least rain falls in April with 55 mm. In August, by comparison, it is 83 mm.
Of course, it doesn't usually rain all day. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to put an umbrella and a rain jacket in your camper. Rainproof camping gear won't hurt either.
The best-known sights in the town include the Affhüppen Chapel, the Tower of Bentheim and Lake Ems. If you are staying for a longer period, it is also worth visiting the community centre in Freckenhorst, the Christuskirche church and the Franciscan monastery.
This neo-Gothic chapel is located just outside the town in Vohren. It was built by Emil von Manger in 1856. He used mainly brick for the construction. This pretty chapel is dedicated to St John the Baptist.
There are some very beautiful hiking trails around the chapel. Especially in spring and summer, you should pack a picnic blanket and spend the afternoon on one of the beautiful meadows. Visitors will find peace and relaxation in this unique natural setting.
This tower dates back to the 13th century and is part of the old fortress ring of Warendorf. There used to be a total of five towers, but only the Bentheimer Turm has been preserved. In the Middle Ages it was mainly used for self-defence.
The Counts of Bentheim-Tecklenburg were responsible for this section of the fortress ring. This is where the name of the tower comes from. A memorial plaque at the base reminds us of an old cemetery.
The Emssee was created as part of the flood protection of the Ems and was therefore artificially created. Part of the old floodplain was converted into a lake. Around the lake, the town laid out a spacious park.
This created a popular recreation area for locals and tourists. The lake has a total length of 1.5 km. The beautiful park and the lake are perfect for cycling. Boats are allowed on the lake, but unfortunately you cannot rent rowing boats.
Tip: Rent a bike: You can rent bikes at the bike station at Bahnhofstr. 11 for a reasonable price. A total of 25 bikes are available, including three bikes for children and 15 electric bikes.
