Rheine, Germany

Guide for the rail traveller


Local languageGerman
Country Germany


This tranquil town near the border with Holland is brimming with nature. The Walsh Agen Park was once a privately owned forest, but in the 1960s it opened to the public, and visitors can follow the walking paths around century-old oak trees and the 17th century barn. There are also football pitches, a kid’s play area and the Buergerhof-Café, has refreshments as well as a roaring fireplace.

The forest hills are a little more adventurous, home to lakes and grazing sheep, and eagle eyes might spot fossils of ammonites and sea urchins. The zoo and the City Park are other popular attractions.

In the town centre many buildings of historical importance remain. The market square dates back to medieval times, and the Textile Museum illustrates the importance of this industry to Rheine’s economy.
