Birds - bats - moors and maar lakes

A natural history bike excursion

Observing marine birds in the Eifel - is that possible? We take a closer look at the subject and discover the Sangweiher by bike. This is a reservoir that serves as a "fuelling station" to many migrating birds in spring and autumn.
Vulkaneifel - Nature and Geopark

This tour has been designed in cooperation with Natur- und Geopark Vulkaneifel GmbH

Herons, cormorants, grey shrike, whinchat and red kites breeding or searching for food can also be observed in this region. Our experience tour continues to the group of holzmaars whose volcanic story of creation made this part of the Eifel famous. A special habitat, an upland moor, has developed in the silted maar basin of the Dürre Maar. Only a few, very specially adapted upland moor plants can flourish in this extreme habitat. You will gain insight into the secretive lives of the bats, which are at risk of becoming extinct, who have found themselves a new home in a former railway tunnel at another station on this tour. Look forward to an excursion full of experiences where you will learn a lots about plant life, animals and nature conservation in the Vulkaneifel.
