Packed everything? Then send the backpack to yourself or your companion and set off.
The former Esselt estate from the 17th century with its manor house (today the last place of residence of the Pankok family of artists), the farm building (today the Otto-Pankok-Museum) and the spacious outdoor area form a wonderful unity of art and nature in the middle of the niederrheinic landscape on the Issel.
The Naturparkhaus Otto-Pankok-Museum
is a meeting and educational place for young and old alike, which awakens the senses, makes the silence of art and nature tangible, and encourages creative design and critical thinking.
The humanitarian spirit of Otto, Hulda and Eva Pankok, their deep connection with nature and their social commitment are noticeable for groups and individual visitors.
Due to the location, directly on Wanderweg Hohe Mark Steig and as informative, enlightening, inviting NaturparkHaus Esselt also offers many things to admire for individual hikers, cyclists and nature seekers niederrheinic fauna and flora: a variety of extraordinary dragonflies on the Issel and a varied wildflower meadow.
For many years, the educational program has been at the heart of all museum activities, in which children and young people discover, understand, experience and create art while taking into account the surrounding nature with all its facets.
Due to its location directly on the Three Rivers Route, on Wanderweg Hohe Mark Steig and as informative, enlightening, inviting NaturparkHaus Esselt also offers hikers, cyclists and nature seekers a lot that is worth admiring niederrheinic fauna and flora: a variety of extraordinary dragonflies on the Issel and a varied wildflower meadow.
When walking through the forest you might be lucky enough to spot a flock of deer, but rarely just the badgers or foxes that make their home here, while the squirrels and woodpeckers are unimpressed by visitors.

On the grounds of Haus Esselt in Hünxe lived the famous painter, sculptor and philanthropist Otto Pankok with his family. The former barn right next door became a museum after his death (1966), where his great works are now on display. You can also discover the wonderfully spacious and wild garden at the biparcours.
The meeting and starting point is between the two buildings at the beginning of the landscape painting trail. From here you can embark on an exciting biparcours full of action and knowledge questions. The path passes several beautiful places and turns a walk into an experience for the whole family.
Here we go!
