Waldheim im Haaks

General economic structure

The municipality is predominantly characterized by agriculture and forestry, which is mainly due to extensive afforestation since the end of the 19th century. In addition, Bohmstedtfeld has had a wind farm with nine wind turbines and a biogas plant since 1996 , which began operation in 2007.

There is also a cooperatively operated farmer's forest, the Haaks , in the municipality . It is also used for local recreation and tourism purposes. In its center is the Waldheim, a regionally known excursion restaurant. The level of awareness also results from an open air music festival of the same name that was held here in the past for several years .


Bohmstedt is off the main traffic axes of the North Friesland district. The nearest supraregional traffic axis for motorized private transport , the federal highway 5 , runs just under three kilometers away through the Hattstedtermarsch. The best connection to the village is via a county road that branches off directly from it at the southern entrance to Struckum in the direction of Almdorf and Bohmstedt. In earlier times, federal highway 5 was part of the Green Coastal Road .

In public transport , Bohmstedt is connected to the train stations in Bredstedt and Husum by bus line 1031 of the Schleswig-Holstein local transport association (route Bredstedt - Drelsdorf - Husum) . At both stations there is a connection to the local rail transport on the Marschbahn ( line RE 6). The station in Husum is also served by individual intercity trains on lines  26.1, 27 and 30.
