Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
This beautiful stretch runs parallel and sometimes very close to the Unstrut, which flows in this area in several loops still in their original riverbed. On the northern side protects a former vineyard, the bank area is lined with pollarded willows and dense bank vegetation, which provides valuable protection especially insects and birds. 35 species of butterflies can be found in the nature reserve. There are in the middle of the section and on the outskirts of Großvargula several clean seating areas, which invite you to linger. Here you should take a break. :-)

Pure biodiversity in the NSG such as. the bag tit, the blue-black wooden bee, the smooth snake, the reversible neck and the red-backed shrike.
The NSG covers 192.6 hectares.
The protected section of the Unstrut Valley is steep and deeply cut into the gently rolling landscape. Here the Unstrut, which in this area still has a largely natural river bed, flows in several loops through the valley.
Endangered plant communities, insects and numerous species of birds settle here.
Besides the Unstrut, other valuable biotopes belong to the NSG.
