Insider tip

Hike through the Bockholt Mountains

No real altitudes await you on an excursion to the Bockholt Mountains - but it does get a bit hilly. From the hikers' car park, you can walk to the "summit" and then gently downhill again on a beautiful, narrow path. The Gellenbach stream, the forest nature trail, the "Heidelandschaft" nature reserve and the quarry pond offer some highlights on your hike through the Bockholt mountains. You can also learn more about this picturesque place at several information points.

Duration & Distance: 1.5 hours, around 3.6 kilometres for a round tour through the forest. Those who picnic should allow more time
Equipment: Comfortable shoes and provisions for the heath picnic
