The municipality of Heek in the western Münsterland encourages you to take a walk in the dunes and to actively experience nature, from fishing to cycling. In the small and friendly town of Heek, a variety of sporting leisure activities await you.
More than 200 km of well-maintained farm tracks are ideal for cycling or inline skating. Large quarry lakes attract anglers and cosy restaurants and pubs invite you to take a break. The former Burgmannshöfe are probably the most beautiful buildings in Heek. The historic buildings stand picturesquely against the green background of the Münsterland park landscape. The ideal place for a break from everyday life. Right next door, the State Music Academy of North Rhine-Westphalia offers top-class concerts.
Heek is an excellent starting point for exploring the Münsterland region and the neighbouring Netherlands by bicycle. Attractive destinations include Steinfurt and Ahaus with their magnificent castle complexes or the artists' village of Schöppingen. The landscape is characterised by wide fields and meadows, which are repeatedly interrupted by small wooded areas.
