Nature reserve NSG Lippeaue from Lünen to Schleuse HorstFrom the Konrad-Adenauer-Straße in the east to the former Horst lock in the west, the nature reserve extends as a flood area along a large arc of the Lippe. As a large grassland strip, the area of the Lippeauen appears together with the glider airfield outside the protected area up to the old Buddenburg. For a long time, many different bird species have once again conquered the area as a habitat for wintering and breeding, which was not the case for decades in a circle.In the context of rethinking and far-reaching renaturation, the Lippeauen and measures such as the restoration of continuity through flooding of weirs - for example in Lippolthausen - to a bundle of conditions that create habitat not only for birds, but also many other species. These include, among others, the wet grassland fallow at the riparian forest on the constricted old arm onion field. In this way, nature regains the habitat for plants and animals, and the human receives high-quality recreational space.
