The community, to which the centres of Hardingen (amalgamated in 1974) and Hesingen also belong, has 654 inhabitants (as of June 2005) and spans 21.15 km².

The community’s mayor is Geert Beckhuis.

The Poascheberg in Hesingen is, with an elevation of 89 m above sea level, the highest point in the lower part of the old County of Bentheim.

Unlike the people of the better known and bigger city of Halle in Saxony-Anhalt, who call themselves Hallenser in German, the inhabitants here call themselves simply Haller, following the usual German rule for formulating nouns denoting a particular place’s inhabitants.

Further centres are Belthoek, Bovenhoek, Dalenhoek, Erstenhoek and Kleihoek.
