Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Very nice route through the nature reserve Aalbek-Niederungen.The jungle behind the Niendorf harbor. Since 1984, the Aalbeek lowlands and the northern part of the lake Hemmelsdorfer are nature reserve and are considered Natura 2000 area, as a designated European protected area. In a narrow belt of broken forests grow black alder and various types of willow, but also moor birch, buckthorn and blackcurrant and in the meadows in spring marsh marigold and primrose, in early summer the sharp buttercup or the large sorrel. In addition, endangered species such as the yellow meadow rue, large and small sequoias and many orchids thrive here. Typical plant species are also iris, Gilb and purple loosestrife, bittersweet nightshade and marsh fern. On the Red List are the broadleaf as well as the rarer flesh-colored orchid. Because of its intact ecological conditions, the rare plant species and its importance as a breeding, resting and wintering area, the wetland is particularly well received by many bird species. In addition, there are important reed-dwelling species of birds in the broad reed strip on the shore of the lake Hemmelsdorfer, such. Reed Catcher, as well as bittern and marsh harrier. The Aalbeek lowland is also noteworthy as the home of a rich small animal world. Moor frog, Kingfisher, Arctic tern, Crane, Golden Oriole, White-tailed Eagle, but also dragonflies, butterflies, such as Admiral, Little Fox, Painted Lady and Peacock Butterfly, find here their ideal living conditions.timmendorfer-strand.de/erleben/naturerlebnis/aalbeek-niederung-naturschutzgebiet
