This walking loop takes you towards Seltz, passing Beinheimer Hafen (Beinheim Marina) and its colony of herons. From there, it is on to the banks of the Rhine, under the Rheinbrücke (Rhine Bridge) and along the river until you reach the Iffezheim Weir. A wide path will then take you along the riverside forest and on to the “Hohwerd” Erholungsgebiet (Leisure Park), which boasts a small animal enclosure and playgrounds. On the return journey, you will get to walk alongside the Stadenrhein River.
