In the Lenzener Elbtalaue, the Elbe has regained 420 hectares of floodplains in recent years. Until a few years ago, the former floodplain areas were cut off from the river by the construction of the dyke and were used intensively for agriculture. As part of a large-scale nature conservation project, a 6 km long new dyke was built, which is up to 1.3 km away from the river. As a result, the old dyke, which was very close to the river, was removed in 6 places at approx. 200 to 500 m. In the event of a flood, the water can now enter the newly gained floodplain through these "dyke slits". In the Lenzener Elbtalaue, a near-natural floodplain landscape is developing as a result.

Great landscapes. Here was the place where the dike was moved back.

The Lenzer Elbtalaue is a very beautiful area, great for cycling and hiking (especially on the Elbe Cycle Path), to chill (e.g. on the Elbe beach or on one of the bracks along the Elbe Cycle Path) and / or take photos (whether birds, game, landscape, nature , There are plenty of motifs here). In addition to the Elbe, the Löcknitz (a pretty, small, curvy river) also flows through the Lenzener Elbe Valley. Since the Elbe cycle path is my favorite cycle path, I am often out and about here (on both sides of the Elbe). There are also enough points for a break (wooden benches and small refuges along the Elbe Cycle Path).
