On the middle Elbe in Saxony-Anhalt, a landscape rich in species and species has survived the times and the largest contiguous hardwood forests of Central Europe have been preserved.On the Roßlauer Oberluch, the state of Saxony-Anhalt realized the first extensive floodplain restoration project with dike relocation in 2005: a new 930 meter long dike was connected to the Altdeich, the dyke line shortened by two thirds and the Altdeich slotted at three points over a length of 300 meters. As a result, the Elbe has recovered 140 hectares of flood plains. About 3.6 million cubic meters of so-called retention space have been created.Several temporary water-bearing flood channels and year-round aquatic biotopes run through the area, where today, in addition to many other animal and plant species, also Elbe beaver, black storks, cranes and red-bellied to find a habitat again.The route is also accessible by bike. Attention: At high tide parts of the outer path of the dike are not accessible! Rest areas are not available, but you will find other seating. More than 30 text and image panels provide interesting background information on nature, trail markers and overview maps facilitate orientation.
