Trip around the Ruggeller marshland
The Ruggeller marsh-land forms, together with the Bangser marsh-land in neighbouring Vorarlberg (Austria), a great area of peat-bogs. In May, the blue blossoms of the Siberian iris shine brightly. In the marsh and undergrowth, rare birds nestle. Also, all kinds of insects and harmless reptiles love the soggy and untouched wet meadows.
Limseneck (stone pit), Halameder, Hohla Kär (rock caves) and the sunken baths are the places through which the circular walk at the foot of the Eschnerberg leads to, finally ending at the Customs House. In the west of the Ruggeller marshland, we reach wet meadows and peat bogs. Via Evimäder, Weienau and Bangserfeld, we arrive at the inland canal, along which we finally reach the end of our circular walk through the nature reserve.
Tip: Be especially considerate of the animals during incubation, and make sure to stay on the marked trails. Don't forget binoculars for bird watching.
Family tip: BBQ areas at Weienau, along the Rhine or on its sand banks. Swim in the backwaters of the Rhine.
