Bike Touring Highlight
At this bridge you can once again enjoy the great view and then leave the old summer dike. Suddenly the landscape changes: Instead of the wet meadows your way leads from here over extensive fields and meadows. In the distance the house Bürgel is visible. There is the Biological Station including a Roman museum housed. Why Romans? Well, as early as the fourth century, the Romans built a fort on the area of Haus Bürgel. From this derives also the name of the area: Kämpe comes from Campus = the field.

There is much to discover here! The nature reserve Urdenbacher Kämpe on the border to Monheim is alluvial landscape and flooded area. It covers the area between the Rhine and an old arm of the river, which moved its course in the 14th century after a flood by several hundred meters to the west. The area is covered in northeast and southwest by riparian forests. The area "Forstgebiet Alter Rhein" is one of the last hardwood groves in the Lower Rhine. The Hartholzaue houses kingfisher, oriole, black kite and corncrake. Parts of the northwest are orchards and, like the northeast, pasture and grasslands. Poplars, ash and willow grow on the pastureland. In the middle and southern area are mainly agricultural arable land.

Here you cycle comfortably, with consideration for the walkers, hikers and nature. Dirt road - on the fairy-tale scenery - right and left of the way much to discover. The kingfisher can be seen here. The idyll relaxed. Many nice rest areas. Photo opportunities - numerous!
Just get on your socks or step on the pedals. Enjoy the silence.
