    A really nice place on the Rhine.
    Here once stood a huge poplar (= Belle) at the old mouth of the Alb. Hence the name of the place here.
    There are some benches, a stone with historical water levels and if the water is not too high, you can go up to the Rhine.

    The Rhine is always a focal point for me to experience interesting walks on the river and in nature.

    The prayer is very natural. Similar to jungle. A feast for the eyes.

    "Belle" - idyll in the Rhine meadows
    IIdylle in the Rhine floodplains Eggensteiner “Belle” once experienced tourist highlights with its legendary poplar
    From Alexander Werner
    Long version of articles in the Badische Neuesten Nachrichten from April 2019, last extension on May 17, 2019.
    With the "Belle", Eggenstein has a tranquil spot on the Rhine. It has long been attracting day-trippers from all over the area. The renaturation of the Alb Canal, which was completed by the municipality in May 2014, significantly upgraded the rest of the area. The historic, iron “Bellebrücke” over the Alb Canal was demolished in 2013 and replaced by a new commercial road bridge. The Alb Canal begins shortly before the mouth of the Alb at the oil port and flows three and a half kilometers further north over the Pfinzentlastungskanal into the Rhine. Since an extraction structure was built in the flood dike, Rhine water has also been flowing through the canal. With the renaturation, the canal was narrowed over a stretch of two kilometers. Side channels were dug and deadwood was brought in. This created new, valuable habitats for typical floodplain inhabitants. For decades, the Eggensteiner Musikverein "Lyra" has been organizing the "Bellefest" in May, which is very popular. Despite various weather-related failures, the club kept this tradition. As can be read in the club chronicle, the "Lyra" had already offered events with a concert in 1928 under the motto "Excursion to the Belle".

    Belle (Old Alb estuary): about 450 years ago the Alb flowed 5 km upstream into the Rhine at Knielingen. Over the centuries the Rhine and its tributaries changed their course again and again. The Belle is an attractive destination with the former mouth of the Alb. Incidentally, the name Belle is a dialect name for poplar.
