The soils of the ditches, dells and lowlands in the southwest are filled with groundwater close to the surface.
These gley soils are natural locations for grasslands.
The northern part of the town area of Halle is situated in the Teutoburg Forest mountain range, with the town limits running on the ridge in large parts.
Towards the south the borough levels off into the sandy plains of the river Ems.
Some isolated dells are located in south-westerly direction of the main ridge of the Teutoburg Forest, for example the Hesseln mountains.
Slim clay-loam soils (Rendzina) have developed here from limestone and marlstone of the Cretaceous.
On the south-western slope of the Teutoburg Forest, for example near Künsebeck, they occupy large areas.
As a consequence of historic tillage techniques and long-term agricultural usage these soils are partly composed of deeply rooting humus, in scattered areas with a sod coat.
52° 5´ 4´´ northern latitude, the southernmost point is south of Kölkebeck at approx. Halle borders the town of Borgholzhausen in the northwest, the town of Werther in the northeast, the community of Steinhagen in the southeast and south, the town of Harsewinkel in the southwest and the town of Versmold in the west, all belonging to the district of Gütersloh.
Major neighbouring cities are Bielefeld and Gütersloh, both in approx. Halle (Westf.) is divided into ten urban districts, of which (besides Halle itself) only the industrial-suburban Künsebeck as well as the rural-agrarian villages Bokel, Hesseln, Hörste and Kölkebeck are built-up areas.
There three streams, the Hessel, Rhedaer Bach and Ruthebach, leave the town's territory, while the Ruthebach joins the Lodenbach.
