The cycle tour circles a large part of the Möhnesee, almost always close to the shore, so that orientation is not a major challenge. This leaves all the more time for the views of the Westfalen Sea from both the north and south shores and for the attractions along the route. If we start the circular tour on the north bank, the beautifully designed Seepark is the perfect place to start. Both the various play and sports facilities for young and old, as well as the diverse gastronomic offerings can be used as a warm-up or as an end to the cycle tour. The ride eastwards leads past the Uferlos lido (for a fee!), where a sandy beach invites you to linger in summer. The route continues to the romantic Kanzelbrücke, whose bridge pillars rise out of the water like church pulpits and form a picturesque photo motif. The nearby district of Völlinghausen again offers leisure activities such as mini golf, the wildlife park (admission is free!) and places to stop for refreshments. After crossing the Kanzelbrücke bridge, the route continues west along the south bank. The Möhneauen-Völlinghausen information trail offers cyclists and pedestrians the opportunity to discover the ecological and cultural-historical features of the area at 12 information stations over a length of 2.4 kilometers. The Körbecke pedestrian and cycle bridge would be a shortcut to get back to the Seepark. After crossing the Delecke bridge, it is again worth taking a short detour, e.g. at the traffic circle to the left to the public bathing area with sunbathing lawn. Or turn right at the traffic circle and shortly afterwards turn left uphill to the Drüggelte Chapel, which is well worth seeing and is the subject of many myths. From here, it is only a few kilometers back to the lake park in Körbecke.

The suggested starting point at the Seepark offers a large number of parking spaces (for a fee). From there, we cycle past the leisure center along the cycle path through Stockum and Wamel towards Kanzelbrücke, which we reach and cross after approx. 6 km. We now continue west along the south bank. We pass the pedestrian bridge and the junction to the gatehouse on the left and reach the Delecke bridge. There is also a landing stage for the MS Möhnesee on the north side of the bridge, so you can also take a one-hour boat trip here. Bicycle transportation is free of charge. Without taking any further detours, turn right at the traffic circle after the bridge to get back to the lake steps in Körbecke.In the junction system, follow the number sequence: 70 - 69 - 68 - 72 - 71 - 70
