Hammer Bakker contains many forest covered hills, separated by steep, curtail clefts. Lakes, moors and streams will rarely be seen here because of the sandy and stony soil. The huge forest area has a rich animal and plant life and roe deer, foxes, badgers and squirrels are very common.
There are three marked routes that take you either south or east in the area.
400 hectares of Hammer Bakker are protected. In the fall, you can find plenty of boletuses and other edible mushrooms as well as both blueberries and cowberries.
