The Urdenbacher Kämpe in the south of Dusseldorf offers hikers a natural landscape that you would not suspect near one of the largest cities in North-Rhine Westphalia. So the hike along the Dusseldorf Altrhein through a breathtaking meadow landscape, in which not only bird lovers get their money.In the 1950s, a summer dike and two drainage ditches were created in the area of the Altrhein. The aim was to protect the adjacent meadows from summer floods. The Old Rhine, however, thereby lost its ecological value. In 2014, the summer dike was opened in two places, so that the old Rhine could look for a natural course again. In this way, an alluvial landscape with a particularly rich in flora and fauna, which can be experienced along the hike. Alone the biodiversity in the water has increased tenfold within a very short time. It is therefore worth taking a pair of binoculars or a camera to enjoy the flora and fauna of the Urdenbacher Kämpe.At high tide parts of the route could not be walked on. Because of the regular flooding caused by flooding, roads can be muddy, so sturdy shoes are recommended.
Can I recommend only to anyone who is in the area right now!
