Römer-Lippe-Route - Cycling on the Roman Lippe Route

Roman legions once marched up the Lippe river on their way to capturing the region between the Rhine and the Elbe. Today it is cyclists who conquer this riverside route, discovering traces of the Romans en route.

Traces of the ancient Romans follow one after another along this route, which follows the longest river in North Rhine-Westphalia. Beginning at the location where Hermann defeated the Roman armies, the route moves on to museums and sites of former Roman camps, and brings the history of the Romans to life. The river was once the lifeblood of this region. Water and its usefulness for mankind is a constant feature of the route: from ‘Odin’s eye’ at the source of the river to swimming lakes, river meadows, canals and locks. Along the way you pass through varied landscapes in the Teutoburg Forest, the Münsterland, Sauerland and Ruhr regions.
