Information Centre – Springs of the River Ems & The Ems Cycle Path

The Information Centre – Springs of the River Ems & The Ems Cycle Path marks the start of the popular Ems Cycle Path, which runs across 375 kilometres from Hövelhof in the Senne to Emden at the North Sea coast. The exhibition wishes to point out the beauty of the landscapes, which the cyclists will enjoy along the River Ems and the abundance of sights along the way; it’s well worth dismounting the bike and stopping to take a closer look. Visitors are provided with information on the tourist offers and will experience highlights of their journey along the Ems even before they have started. Detailed information on the area surrounding the spring of the Ems is available from the Information Centre. Particular emphasis is given to the peculiarities of the Ems Springs as swamp springs which deliver water continuously all year round. Visitors can make the River Ems rise from a model of its spring in the Information Centre.
