    In the sand pit you must not. Still worthwhile, if you are in the vicinity. Even outside the pit, you can leave the kids ever to the shovel. We found a great pirate treasure here ;-)

    Definitely take it with you. Uniquely, sand was mined here until a few decades ago. Once the dune landscape has been uncovered, there is a natural treasure to be found here, I mean.

    Zugmantel-Bandholz is a 17 hectare nature reserve in the area of the municipality of Sandhausen (Rhein-Neckar-Kreis). It is located southeast of Sandhausen in the "Bandholz" community forest on the eastern edge of Schwetzinger Hardt in the Hardtebenen natural area.This nature reserve is a former sand pit, which was put under protection after the settlement of rare plants and animals. It is characterized by a mixture of water areas, forested areas and open sand grass with drought-loving plants. Here is also part of the dune train, which extends from Oftersheim via Sandhausen to Walldorf.

    Beautiful path along the sand pit with beautiful views and information boards about animal and plant life. Benches invite you to linger and enjoy the scenery.

    Interesting and unusual landscape around an area used for sand mining until 1980. Information boards tell about history, flora and fauna.

    In the 17 hectare nature reserve between Sandhausen, Leimen-St. Ilgen and Walldorf is a pit in which sand was mined until 1980. Initially, the rise in the groundwater created a wet biotope with an extensive shallow water zone and small islands. The dune wall in the south-eastern part of the site is particularly striking.The newly created habitat was placed under nature protection at the request of the Sandhausen community in December 1985.Over the years, the nature reserve has changed a lot. The large bodies of water have disappeared due to fluctuations in the groundwater level. Pioneering plants such as chicory, evening primrose and sweet clover have settled on the entire area. Visitors will also find maple trees, linden trees and locust trees there.
    The site is now home to both dry and wet habitats. On the one hand, animals can be found here that have adapted to the drought. On the other hand, there are also numerous amphibians and aquatic insects.
    The sandy steep slopes of the nature reserve with their sandy lawn areas are ideal habitats for rare insects such as digger wasps or wild bees. The sand areas are comparable to the free sand areas of the Sandhausen dunes. The blue-winged wasteland insect or the sand dune beetle can be discovered there.
