Relax and savour your Nature Experience

Explore the Nature

You can understand nature best when you're right in the middle of it. Exploring the Beech Trail and participating in other interactive activities will not only make you smarter but also provide lots of fun!

We have connected the two ponds and thus improved the water quality. This has created a better habitat for insects and forest animals. Take a seat on the beautiful pond shores! Or take a stroll across the bridge to observe many species of animals and plants.

Our Green Room is open to everyone.

It is your classroom, meeting room, and living room in nature. “Learning about nature in nature” is the motto. It's a place for experimenting, discovering, and resting.

Ecological enhancement and biodiversity

We live in a time when not only awareness of environmental issues has increased, but also our understanding of the importance of local ecosystems such as forests, biodiverse grasslands, and natural water bodies. The main objective of the "Revierparks 2020" project was the active revitalisation and ecological remediation of the existing park areas. By afforestation and renaturation, it is possible to protect native plant and animal species and create optimal habitats for them. Therefore, we actively exploit existing potentials to protect regional biodiversity (including the various life forms and habitats, as well as the genetic diversity within species) and to strengthen it with regard to climate changes.

One of the core topics of our project was the de-paving of unused spaces and the retransformation of these areas to natural growth habitats. The immense vegetation areas that have been adapted to current and future climate changes are impressive.

Across all five parks, an impressive total of 22,140 square meters have been reclaimed and now serve as new habitats for animals and plants.

This not only has a positive effect on the park's climate but also on the surrounding neighbourhoods.

In the “Revierpark Vonderort” alone, approximately 5,150 square meters have been returned to nature through the removal of unused paths, paved surfaces, and walls. The creation of ecologically valuable small biotopes, the seeding of species-rich flower meadows, and the planting of natural hedges and forest edges are further tangible measures that have been implemented on a significant scale in the five Revierparks.

In Revierpark Vonderort alone, 28 trees have been strategically planted at selected points to provide a habitat and nourishment for insects and birds, complementing the existing 3,000 trees.

Furthermore, approximately 4,060 square meters of insect-friendly perennial areas were established, providing a solid food source with their abundant blossoms for a variety of insect species. The approximately 13,130 square meters of flowering meadows in the Revierpark Vonderort also offer long-term nourishment, nesting material, and more for local birds and insects.

Do you know what a brushwood hedge is? Brushwood hedges, in German called “Benjeshecken”, provide shelter and food for birds and other animals. With their droppings and food reserves, they accelerate the spread of woody plants through seed dispersal. A similar process occurs with the colonisation of plants at forest edges.

Pure nature, indeed. That's why we have planted approximately 1,050 square meters of these hedges in the Revierpark Vonderort.

In addition, the existing pond areas in Vonderort have been sustainably enhanced. Through thoughtful replanting and carefully planned shoreline structures, these areas now provide optimal living conditions and an ideal habitat for many species.

However, what good are the best concepts for the preservation and promotion of biodiversity without a concomitant understanding among park visitors? For this reason, recreational activities have been created that are not only in line with the aims of ecological enhancement but also raise awareness among visitors for a mindful and appreciative interaction with nature.

Nature Trails that focus on the specific themes of the parks and the resident wildlife and plant species, as well as numerous opportunities for experiencing nature, open the door for park guests to develop a greater awareness of our native flora and fauna. In Vonderort, the Nature Trail highlights the importance of our native beech trees for the forest ecosystem.
