  • The valley landscape is very beautiful to look at.
    The whole area is very swampy and has several natural streams flowing through it.
    It is characteristic of the area that the sources of five brooks lie here, which have allowed the Schaagbach Valley to develop into a species-rich wetland. The stream meanders through damp valleys whose edges can rise up to several meters.
    One of the springs is located near Haus Wildenrath south of Wildenrath.
    Absolutely worth seeing!

  • The dream path opens up to hikers the beauties of nature in the Schaagbachtal with different habitats. With a little luck you might see kingfishers or bats. West of Wildenrath it goes along the Schaagbach through the forest towards Birgelen. The transition between the two brook valleys is formed by an unspoilt forest landscape.

    First of all: this dream path rightly bears its name. Anyone who wants to experience the power and beauty of nature as a hiker in just under three hours, regardless of the season, is best served with the "Wild Schaagbach Valley Dream Trail". The attractive circular hiking trail is almost nine kilometers long, is not very difficult and has a lot to offer for nature lovers. The route is very well signposted, so that even those unfamiliar with the area cannot get lost.
    It starts in the parking lot of Haus Wildenrath. There a map offers an overview of the route, which despite its length is easy to hike because it has only a few noticeable inclines ... "

  • The Schaagbachtal is between Haus Wildenrath and Schaufenberg
    continuous nature reserve. So it is understandable that the hiker
    rarely gets to see the brook because of the swampy banks
    are not accessible. You should be firm for the entire hiking route
    Use footwear and be sure-footed.

  • One of the most beautiful sections on this round, but unfortunately closed at the moment, as the path has been washed away. The beaver was probably too eager.

    As a result, these trees have come to stand in the water. It has now become a big lake

  • The beavers have taken care of this water feature. They have built dams in the river so that a lake is created where the beaver and his family can live well. Other birds and amphibians also benefit from this.
