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.

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.

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.
