Bad Laer

Discover the charming, from the foothills of the Teutoburg forest protected sole spa Bad Laer on the southern slope of Blomberg.

The spa town Bad Laer is nestled in 3,500 hectare of woodland and meadows directly in the triangle between Bielefeld, Münster and Osnabrück. Over 100 km of hiking trails for walking and cycling. A new Nordic-Walking-Park offers active travelers and nature lovers the perfect conditions. Bad Laer is known by the strong 7.2-percent sole and drawn by a mild climate and natural vegetation. The characteristic half-timbered and stone buildings from the unique piepstone - as the symbol of the village, the so-called »Griese Toarn« with its stepped gable - are striking. He is one of the oldest pre-romanic towers in northern Germany.

The castle in Bad Iburg, the castles Harkotten and Loburg are easily accessible by bike, the barefoot park in Lienen is a natural experience. The historic warendorf is world famous for his stud, and the graduation house in Bad Rothenfelde always worth a visit.

Even in Bad Laer sole is very important. In the saltwater-therapy pool you swim in 32°C warm sole, the homeland museum invites you on a journey into our history and in our new adventure park with its garden of the senses you can enjoy a wide range of recreational facilities.

Bad Laer is on the edge of the Teutoburg Forest, which borders with its hills and elevations on the cyclist's paradise Münsterland - the perfect combination for every fan of cycling. The various tours appeal to the ambitious cyclist, as well as the relaxation-seeking cyclists or hiker. Discover the beautiful landscapes, the palaces and castles, half timbered houses and spas, or follow the peace route Münster-Osnabrück on the historical equestrian trails, which played at the time of the peace negotiations to end the Thirty Years' War, a major role. New to the program are the frontier route, and the peace route.

For the days between the tours, the spas of the Osnabrück region offer a soothing relaxation. Bicycles can be rented from us, and we are happy to assist you in planning the route. Use our "Get on your bike"-offer to explore Bad Laer and the region!
