The idyllic town on the Ems is a popular destination for excursions and this in many ways: the `Telgte triad` with its baroque pilgrimage chapel, pilgrimage church and the Relígio Museum is known beyond the borders of Münsterland. Cycle tourists appreciate the attractive paths around and in Telgte and enjoy the cosy atmosphere on the historic market square. Telgte is also known for its wide-ranging cultural programme with the market of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary or the carriage pilgrimage.
