The Venner Moor is a former bog west of the Davert near the village of Venne (municipality of Senden, district of Coesfeld, North Rhine-Westphalia) between Lippe and Ems, directly on the Dortmund-Ems Canal. The total area is around 148 ha. It is designated as a nature reserve and as a protected area within the meaning of the Habitats Directive.
Condition and vegetation Edit source]
This rain bog has been largely cleared. In the center are forest-free remains of the former peat body. There are four large, now water-filled peat stitches, in which a renaturation process is hesitant. The rest of the area is now largely forested with birch and pine.

Compared to its rather small size, the Venner Moor offers a lot of variety and several paths that can be combined into a neat round. It is heavily forested and looks a bit desert and jungle-like. Last but not least, this is what makes this moor so special.
