Discover the world of the Rhine valley’s marshlands. The Dornbirner Ache river meanders in numerous loops through the marsh. The idyllic Jannersee lake nestles gently into the Lauteracher Ried landscape conservation area.The route here takes cyclists past extensive meadows, fields and stands of birch and oak trees. The Bruggerloch, a former quarry lake, offers bathing fun for the whole family. Reinvigorated cyclists may continue along the route near Lustenau further into the Alter Rhein recreational area that boasts beautiful floodplain forests, walking paths and natural bathing areas.

Author’s recommendation

The ‘Natura 2000 – Gebiet Birken – Schwarzes Zeug‘ features extensive moorland and wet and bedding meadows, which are home to many such endangered species as corncrakes, great curlews, lapwings and common snipes, and is therefore a protected area. An absolute must for nature lovers!
