Nature as nature intended

The Bienwald Forest, the largest forest area in the region’s Rhine plain, is located on the border with France. This well-kept secret is a treat for nature-lovers. Not only is it home to unspoilt floodplain forests, small moors and dunes, but it is also one of the last refuges for wildcats, stag beetles and middle spotted woodpeckers. The area is of vital importance as a habitat for hundreds of plant and animal species whose existence is threatened in the region or in Germanyas a whole. The Bienwald Nature Conservation Project ensures that this valuable habitat will be safeguarded in the long term.
