    The path around the small viewing platform Galgenvenn offers a beautiful access to the biotope. A romantic place to stay.

    In the moorland of the Border Forest, heath mounds were created where the precipitation water is dammed by an impermeable layer of soil just below the soil surface.

    "Culture and Nature: Heide, Moore, Flachskuhlen"
    The jetty in the Galgenvenn leads a few meters out on the Venn and offers a beautiful panoramic view. Like a clearing, the heath and moorland lies between the pines of the border forest. The landscape is characterized by sandy, dry soil. In some areas, however, near-surface accumulating clay layers are present. Here, the rainwater could collect, so that nutrient-poor Heideseen and bog areas emerged. Many animals and plants found here are on the Red List of Endangered Species. Moor frog, mountain newt, sand lizard and a variety of dragonflies can be found here. Flowering bellhide and cotton grass are typical of this mosaic of dry and misty soils.
    Even Flachskuhlen can still be seen near the bridge as rectangular waterholes. They are testimonies of flax cultivation in the region, which was widespread until the end of the 19th century. In these pits, the flax was sunk in bundles until the bark parts were released from the fibers by the decomposition process. These flax fibers were spun and processed into textiles.
