DESCRIPTION OF THE ROUTE

This walking loop along the Rhine has plenty to fascinate and amaze you along the way, such as Baggersee Epple (Epple Quarry Pond), where you can go for a dip, Hafen Seltz (Seltz Port), the Vogelwarte (Bird Sanctuary) in Munchhausen, the former Kiesgrube Willersin (Willersin Quarry) located not far from Munchhausen and Naturschutzgebiet Grosswoerth (Grosswoerth Nature Reserve). The latter is a protected enclave featuring tranquil marshlands and wetlands that make an ideal home for birds. Grosswoerth is one of the few floodplains that provide more space for the water from the Rhine at times when the water levels are high. Such areas are extraordinary from an ornithological and botanical perspective as well as in terms of the landscape and water cycle. The route takes you past Baggersee Epple (Epple Quarry Pond) and a Forellenzucht (Trout Farm) on the way to a Botanischer Garten (Botanical Garden) where there is space to play and have a picnic. You will find bilingual signposts all the way along the route.
