Tips

  • Bumble-Bee

    Very popular place for bird watchers. From the pulpit you have a good view of the water without disturbing the birds.

    The pulpit a little further east is usually a little quieter.

    The Zwillbrocker Venn is a nature reserve on the German-Dutch border. The forest and swamp area was created after peat was cut here. Many birds sit here, including a colony of around forty flamingos (!). This makes it the northernmost breeding ground in Europe for this tropical pink appearance.

    The circular route is about 5 km long and offers many beautiful views of the bird colonies.

    From here you can see the Flamingo Island and if you have a coffee or need, there is also a toilet.

    This is the only place from where you can see the flamingos, but binoculars are recommended. You are very far away. Or 1 € for the binoculars there (unfortunately not tried for lack of change).

    A nice place to rest, with toilet and kiosk, but thanks to Corona everything is tight. The pulpit is open, there are currently only two people allowed to enter. For 1 euro you can see the flamingos even better with binoculars ... but binoculars are not so good.

    Good view of the flamingos and other birds, binoculars are helpful.

    At the kiosk next to it, I got the worst coffee in a long time for € 2.50, but it might still be worth a visit: there is information material, ice cream and a toilet.

    Nice place for a short walk, where you can immediately spot some birds in one of the huts.

    The Zwillbrocker Venn near Vreden in the Borken district is home to the world's northernmost flamingo breeding colony. The Zwillbrocker Venn covers about 100 hectares, the lake alone is 35 hectares in size. Peat used to be extracted in the area. This is how the body of water came into being. Several viewing platforms and a tower offer visitors exciting opportunities to observe the wildlife. The Flamingo Route, a German-Dutch cycle route, also runs along the Venn.

    You are back. Today there would be "only" 12 flamingos. According to the biological station, there were 30 flamingos over Easter and 50 birds last year.
