Bike Touring Highlight
One of the most beautiful bike trails I've ever ridden. Through dense forest, always along the Schwalm, past several lakes, untouched nature, endless photo opportunities, far away from car traffic, almost deserted except for a few strollers. You drive to the water in Dutch Swalmen and follow the river to Brüggen, which is also worth a visit.

There are various types of biotopes in the nature reserve, including a moor and the largest juniper heather on the left Lower Rhine. Bluethroat, stonechat, water rail, woodlark, little grebe and reed warbler breed in the Elmpter Schwalmbruch. Beavers and smooth snakes can also be found here.
