During the Summer

Cycling Tours

From our holiday apartments, you can discover the Lower Rhine by bike. On well-signposted routes, cycling becomes a tourist pleasure. The cycling trail network in and around Kempen allows you to enjoy a variety of tours, suitable for beginners as well as for advanced cyclers.

If you do not have your own bike, please contact us. Bicycles are available upon request. We are also happy to help you prepare your bike tours.

Water Sports

Paddle and canoe trips are popular on the nearby Niers River. Experience pastures and meadows from a completely different perspective. Further information:

The aqua-sol indoor and outdoor swimming pool offers swimming fun for the whole family. A large pool, a giant slide, a sports pool and an out-door pool are also available, as is a large sauna, solarium and cafeteria.

In the Old City

In May, traditionally, the three-day long old town festival with a medieval crafts market attracts big crowds.

The Highland Games are being held on the castle meadows of the Kurkölnische Landesburg for over ten years. A great pleasure for participants and spectators alike!

Another sporting event for young and old is the annual Old Town Race with around 1,500 participants and the international cycling race "Around the Castle".

Classical concerts "OpenAir" are taking place in the Kulturforum Franziskanerkloster/Klosterhof, weather permitting.
