Green, invigorating nature and a cultural landscape rich in things to be discovered and steeped in history – that is the contrast awaiting visitors to the District of Cleves. And that’s the reason why the popular Lower Rhenish region is not only a real insider’s tip as a destination for cyclists. Over 1,500 kilometres of cycle paths await visitors. But the offerings don’t end there for the region spanning over 1,200 square kilometres and with over 310,000 inhabitants.
Rhine promenades and historic market squares are attractions as well as stately homes and natural monuments. Pilgrims visit the pilgrimage town of Kevelaer, art fans delight at the variety offered by museums (Moyland Castle) and at pictures by pavement artists in Geldern and nature fans enjoy bicycle tours or hikes through the Reichswald in Cleves. And food connoisseurs get their money’s worth at the countless farm cafés during Kale Week in the District of Cleves or in the asparagus village of Walbeck.
The airport in Weeze turns the District of Cleves into the gateway to the Lower Rhine for guests from all around the world.
