The fascination of Niederrhein - 365 days a year

The Niederrhein

“The Lower Rhine – so good. So far.”

Wide horizons and the feeling of freedom: this is the Niederrhein. Unspoilt countryside between the Rhein and the Maas, the Niers and the Rur, the Lippe and the Issel. Countryside that is practically heaven on earth for hikers and cyclists. A region that exudes mystical enchantment with the romance of the Rhine, and which with the Schwanenburg in Kleve and dragon slayer Siegfried from Xanten is inextricably linked with the saga of the Nibelungs

A region of towns such as Wesel, which once belonged to the Hanseatic League, and Kevelaer, which is now home to one of Germany’s biggest shrines to the Virgin Mary. A region with great appeal for everyone seeking leisure activities and adventure. And a region to be enjoyed with all the senses.
