Course of the Hase through the Hase Valley

The Hase is a 193 km long river in Lower Saxony, Germany. It is a right tributary of the Ems, but part of its flow goes to the Else, that is part of the Weser basin. Its source is in the Teutoburg Forest, south-east of Osnabrück, on the north slope of the 307 m high Hankenüll hill.

Weser-Ems Watershed

After approx. 15 km, near Gesmold (about 6 km west from Melle), the Hase encounters an anomaly of terrain and bifurcates such that each branch flows in a different drainage system:

  • one third of its waters flow along the south side of the Wiehengebirge hills eastward from Gesmold into the Else, which begins there, and flows into the Werre at Kirchlengern (north of Herford). The Werre is a tributary of the Weser.
  • two thirds of its waters (the Hase proper) flow northwest from Gesmold toward Osnabrück, past the towns listed below, and toward Meppen, where the Ems receives its flow.
