    The former dike of the Elbe, which got the masses of water at high tide because of the Elb-Knick and the tens of thousands of sandbags needed to stabilize the great Elbe flood, was abandoned in favor of more nature-related flood protection. With the dike relocation and breakthrough of the original dyke to several sections, the area is flooded during floods and an alluvial forest is to be created. For this purpose, thousands of seedlings of hardwood and softwood meadow trees were preferred and planted. The success of the large-scale project is already evident, as many birds that disappeared in the area have already returned.
    Due to the protection of the breeding grounds, only a small part of the former dyke near the Elbe is easy to navigate and ride on (bicycle).
