Packed everything? Then send the backpack to yourself or your companion and set off.
Starting from eight larger hiking car parks, there is a short (orange) and a long (blue) circular route that is reliably marked. Noisy pines, hard quartzite benches and drumming woodpeckers attract discerning hikers and families to the Haard. A low-barrier round in the south and the children's round in the north complete the offer. A highlight is the forest promenade: it offers adventure and relaxation on the sunny side of the Haard.
Via the A 43 and A52, but also by public transport via the train stations
Marl-Sinsen and Haltern am See, the Haard is easily accessible.
