Dülmen also called the “city of wild horses” has been known far beyond the city limits for many years.
The wild horse track in the Merfelder Bruch is located about 12 km west of Dülmen in an extensive nature reserve. Between 1840 – 1850 the famous Dülmen wild horses were captured and given a new habitat on the wild horse track by the Duke of Croy, which is still preserved today. The wild horses live in the Merfelder Bruch all year round. For ages the wild horse track has been located here, on the property of the Duke of Croy, where up to 400 animals can move around naturally on about 400 hectares. The horses are completely subject to natural selection, just as they would be in the wild.
Every year a special event is organized here, the “Wildpferdefang” (wild horse catching) in the Merfelder Bruch. The stallions, which are only 1 year old, are caught by hand. For this, these catchers need stamina, skill and a lot of endurance. Afterwards the stallions are auctioned.
Over 700 varieties of roses with more than 30,000 specimens bloom here on an area of 18,752 m2. Only 600 m away.
