The Hohe Mark nature park is one of the oldest and largest nature parks in North Rhine Westphalia. It borders the Lower Rhine, the Ruhr region and the Münsterland and stretches out over an area of more than 1,000 square kilometres. Visitors can get to know the highlights of the landscape, the animals and plants and also the tradition of the region, particularly while hiking.
Quality route with 12 stages
The "Hohe-Mark-Steig" route leads straight through the Hohe Mark nature park and crosses the wide forests. It touches many beautiful spots: natural monuments, view points and small waterways.
The Hohe-Mark-Steig includes twelve stages, which are created as a circuit and therefore are very diverse. The individual routes measure between 14 to 24 kilometres and the nearly 20-kilometre stage 12 starts and ends in Wesel.
This stage includes the Diersfordt Castle and the Tannenhäuschen Waldhotel. The Diersfordter Forest defines the character, in particular the game park and the "Schwarzes Wasser" moor waterway.
The Hohe Mark Tourismus e.V. offers hikes over the Hohe-Mark-Steig throughout the entire year.
