    Wonderful heathland that can be explored on routes of different lengths. Must be visited. Especially in the weeks when the heather is in bloom and on weekends there is often a lot going on. Signs warn of oak processionary moths, so dogs must be kept on a leash.

    The hills and deep hollows in the Westruper heath are another special feature of this great heathland.

    Good parking, short walk and you're "in the middle".
    There are various routes to different topics. In bad weather, however, pay attention to footwear - where you really should only go when the sun is shining. Absolute recommendation!

    Hikes of different lengths are color-coded on a map and the path is then marked with the same color. So you can extend your round from 2 km - small to over 13 km, depending on how you can and want. Numerous benches on the way invite you to linger. A beautiful piece of earth.

    A visit is always worthwhile.
    Ideally during the week, because otherwise very busy. In the end there are also busy bees to examine.

    The Westruper Heide is a scenic highlight. Flowering heather, branching paths - colorful and idyllic.

    The paths are sandy and very winding. The entire area is closed to cyclists.

    Very impressive the gnarled colleague tree, as well as the branch lying on the ground, which forks in two roughly equal huge axes.

    Wonderful landscape, somewhat exotic, one would not have expected here with this high tree population. A wonderful quiet and scenic quiet place, a place to be ....

    It is especially beautiful there in August because the heather then blooms in beautiful pink / purple tones.
