  • Leisure in Minden

Minden's green places

Where there used to be the city wall in former times, there now is Minden's green belt, the Glacis. It invites you to take part in leisure activities or to relax.

Organize a spontaneous picnic, hike, walk or jog in the great outdoors without disturbing traffic and without emissions. There are two children's playgrounds in the Glacis for the little ones.

Many residents of Minden enjoy spending their free time on the Weser. Whether walking, cycling or inline skating: the Weser promenade offers ideal conditions for everything in a wonderfully natural setting. Bicycle enthusiasts can look forward to the attractive Weser cycle path, which leads through the city along the Weser promenade.

Tip: A good option for an active, yet relaxed day in the green space: you can rent up to 6 e-bikes at the tourist information.
