Hörstel is idyllically located in the Münsterland park landscape on the southern slope of the Teutoburg Forest in Tecklenburger Land. This horse-friendly community is home to over 60 establishments dedicated to the breeding and keeping of horses, as well as 3 riding and driving associations.
The geological nature trail at the Torfmoor Lake is also well worth a visit and explains the unique features of various rock types amidst a charming scenery. A dip in the nearby Hertha Lake is the perfect way to cool down in the summer. The attractive Münsterland with its over 100 castles and the Peace of Westphalia cities Münster and Osnabrück are as quickly and easily reached as the Teutoburg Forest.
Take advantage of the region’s diverse leisure activities; allow yourself to be tempted into a zoo visit, climb to unimaginable heights on the high ropes course, or go for a ride on a historical train. Adventure off in a canoe, hike along beautiful paths, or discover the breathtaking landscape anew in a sightseeing plane ride high in the sky. Among all these options is sure to be just the right thing for you.
