    The Westruper Heide is a uniquely beautiful and manageable heathland with numerous walking paths. In all seasons, whether slightly over-frozen in winter, to heather in summer or in light autumn fog in autumn, this heath is very impressive.

    Everything that belongs to the heath can be found here in the smallest of spaces. Easy to reach, also good to visit on foot. Especially beautiful, of course, at the heyday, August about.

    The Westruper Heide is also attractive in spring and worth a stay.

    The Westruper Heide is a nature reserve in Haltern am See between the Halterner reservoir and the eponymous district Westrup. It is not far from the Haard.
    The largest dwarf shrub heathland in Westphalia is also designated as Fauna-Flora-Habitat (FFH) in the Natura 2000. It is considered an important stepping stone in the biotope network of moors and heaths in southern Münsterland.
