Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Weingartener Moor nature reserve is one of the last remaining natural areas of the Kinzig-Murg-Rinne, a former river valley on the eastern edge of the Upper Rhine Rift. It is a low moor with open water areas, surrounded by a large break forest. Both of these result in a species-rich fauna. The bird life in the reserve is particularly diverse. For 14 native amphibian species, the moor is an important spawning ground of European importance. Such humid and wet biotopes have become very rare in the Karlsruhe area, especially due to drainage measures in favor of agricultural use. Today the Weingartener Moor and the Grötzinger Bruchwald represent one of the most famous nature reserves in the area around Karlsruhe.
