Exploring the Rhine floodplains
The Floodplains of the river Rhine near Rastatt are one of the most valuable natural resources in the administrative district of Karlsruhe. Within the framework of the largest LIFE-Nature conservation project in Baden-Wuerttemberg so far, the regional council Karlsruhe, together with several different partners, has created near natural floodplain areas, renaturated flowing waters and established species-rich meadows between 2011 and 2015. We thereby promote rare animals, plants and habitats and contribute to obtain and develop the European network of protected areas, Natura 2000. With the present brochure we now invite you to get to know the LIFE+-project area. Discover this valuable natural treasure together with your family along the three proposed cycle tours.
