The Landhaus Beckmann is the ideal starting point for bike tours

An optimal starting point for day trips

The hotel is “in the centre”: take a bike ride to the roman city of Xanten, the site of pilgrimage Kevelaer. Visit the cities of Goch, Kleve, Emmerich, Rees or Wesel. Enjoy nature in the Reichswald or at the river Rhine. Our neighbor country, the Netherlands, known for its cycling routes is only 20 kilometres away. Multiple thematic tours like Via Romana, Rhine cycling route or Lower Rhine Route are passing the Landhaus Beckmann directly.

The best: the Lower Rhine is flat and level and therefore the perfect location for cycling in a relaxed way. Only small hills are here and there, providing a beautiful view after a small challenge – real mountains are unknown to the inhabitants of the Lower Rhine area.

Spontaneous bike tours are also possible! We are happy to provide you with regular bikes, e-bikes or even a mountain bike or racing bike on loan (for a fee) and offer competent tour advice!

Cycling tours

It presents scenic diversity: meadows and fields, the rivers Maas (crossing by ferry) and Niers, Lower Rhine villages and towns, including North West Europe’s largest site of pilgrimage, castles, an airport, forest area with wild boars, an animal park and petting zoo, farm land. Enjoy a route without significant gradients, but certainly with “profile”!

For this tour we offer a detailed description in German as pdf-document.


On the program is the “Pfälzer Tour” with a detour to Good Graefenthal on the Niers, past the Reichswald, the largest forest area on the Lower Rhine, with the “Pfälzer” villages Louisendorf, Pfalzdorf, Nierswalde and Neulouisendorf and the highlight of the day tour: Castle Moyland.

The total distance amounts to just under 70 km. The route profile is largely flat, with only a few smaller climbs on the way. The motto of the tour could be: nature and culture …. pure.
