Nature experience Höxberg

Great views and lots of nature

The Höxberg, located south of the city, attracts many recreation-seekers every year, including numerous cycling groups and families. At 162 metres above sea level, it is the highlight of Beckum in the truest sense of the word. This is already noticeable from the great view of Beckum (at station 9 of the cement route you have a great panoramic view and a nice place to rest) and on the other side as far as the Haarstrang (in good visibility you can see from the Soestwarte or at the mill).

Windmill at the Höxberg

An extensive animal enclosure, an aviary with native and other bird species, the old windmill as well as restaurants and hotels are in the immediate vicinity.


A panoramic view of Münsterland - and on a clear day even as far as Sauerland - can be had from the Soestwarte lookout tower, a watchtower of the medieval Landwehr.

Please note: It is currently not possible to climb the Soestwarte, as extensive renovation work is being carried out!
