The Ruggeller Riet forms – together with the Bangser Riet in neighbouring Vorarlberg – a magnificent wetland landscape.

In May the area is covered in a carpet of shimmering blue as the Siberian iris comes into bloom. Rare birds nest in the reeds and woods. With a little bit of luck you may also see a beaver or kingfisher.

 

The circular walk at the foot of Eschnerberg mountain leads through Limseneck (stone pit), Halameder, Hohla Kär (rock caves) and the sunken baths to the customs house. Heading west, walkers reach wet meadows and peat bogs, before passing Evimäder, Weienau and Bangserfeld on the way to the inland canal, which leads to the end of the circular walk through the nature reserve. 

 

Please be especially considerate towards the animals during the breeding season and stay on the marked trails at all times. Don’t forget binoculars for bird watching. 

 

Author’s recommendation

For families: There are barbeque areas at Weienau, along the Rhine or on its sand banks. Why not cool off after the walk with a swim in the backwaters of the Rhine?
