Nature Experience Lahn

Seite ausdrucken

The river Lahn and its floodplains are a biotope for many kinds of rare animals and plants. Thus the river Lahn is ecologically extremely valuable and of great significance. The flora along the river bank offers insects and small animals feed and hiding places throughout the year.

The larva of many different kinds of dragon-flies live in the vast population of aquatic plants. A large number of fish, larva of insects and amphibians live in the water. Many different kinds of birds find feed on the shallow sandbanks and the steep rock faces offer suitable nesting places for birds such as the kingfisher. On the meadows along the bank and in the reeds birds like the nightingale build their nests. The extensive and partly wet meadows are important for feed and brooding. Especially during breeding season and the time of raising the young the birds react very sensitively on disturbance, the clutch of eggs may get chilled and the brood can be given up completely.

The large meadows along the river are very important flood areas. Here the water can spread without causing severe damages. Important areas of the floodplains have been declared nature reserve. Everybody – the leisure- as well as recreation-seeking guest -  are asked to preserve the lebensraum “Lahn” for man and nature.  All of us can do their bit to preserve the flood areas. Leisure and recreation at rivers close to nature is a special experience.
