    Great circular route, easy to hike, very interesting bird watching possible (storks, barnacle geese, gray geese, grebes, coot, mallards, cuckoo, nightingale), and many more. Nice restaurant at the parking lot with great map!

    In good weather a commendable, natural walk around the pool, great for small enddecker. Nice if Dad or Mom then have a pair of binoculars to watch the great nature (storks, herons, etc.).

    formation
    Due to the course of the Ems and parallel watercourses there were always floods in the cities Rietberg and Rheda-Wiedenbrück in the district Gütersloh. It was therefore decided in 1972 to build a water retention basin in Steinhorster Bruch in the north of the district of Paderborn and east of Westerwiehe. The dykes were used to rebuild an area through which the Ems flows; If there is a risk of flooding, a weir should be closed so that the water can collect in the pool. The dyke and Staubauwerke are managed by the water association Obere Lippe. In a trial, it was found that wading and waterfowl settled in this basin.
    wildlife
    The nature reserve serves as resting place, food and moulting place as well as wintering place for migrating bird species. It is also a breeding and refuge for birds that are typical of wetlands. In winter, swimming and diving, Arctic geese, gray and white egrets, cormorants and goosander back here. In spring, the cranes take a break when returning from the south, fish eagles, black storks and peregrine falcons, the basin also serves as a resting place at the time of bird migration. The breeding birds include the species Black-headed Gull, Lapwing, Curlew and Great Crested Grebe. In 2010, a pair of white storks successfully brooded on a stork mast for the first time.

    A great walk around the Steinhorster basin (loop about 5 km). Many wild birds are to be observed there. But do not forget your binoculars, it's worth it!

    There is always something to discover here. Many migratory birds use the water landscape for a stopover
