When the Lower Rhine landscape was still a swampy area with plenty of water, the Buchholz Forest, so it can be assumed, was an alder wood, comparable to the Spreewald, which got its present form in the late 18th century and in the course of the 19th century.A rich avifauna is thanks to the natural structure of the forest: Great spotted, small, medium, green and black woodpecker live here, many nuthatches, the stock dove, owls such as the tawny owl or the long-eared owl, the buzzard, the honey buzzard, the hawk and Sparrowhawks, to name just a few examples.
The old wood, especially near the structurally rich edge of the forest, are habitats for bat species, in turn pars pro toto, pipistrelle, broad-winged bat, rough-skin bat and noctule bat. Every now and then, the patient observer will see a sunbathing blindworm.This is a small excerpt from the history of the Buchholz Forest. the whole article would go beyond this framework.

There are some parking spaces at the edge of the forest, but you can also get to the forest via the adjacent fields, then it is best to park at the end of the street "In der Schley, 41189 MG"
