Schmidtenhöhe nature reserve

Short facts

  • Bad Ems
  • Nature experience

Two circular routes present an El Dorado for flora and fauna, even with wild horses!

The Schmidtenhöhe nature reserve is a nature reserve, created on a former military training area. The desert-like areas created by the tanks with individual blackberry bushes and hedges quickly became an El Dorado for flora and fauna! Today you can find many endangered and rare plants and animals, such as the Konik wild horse, the Taurus cattle, bats and many species of reptiles and insects. The area can be circumnavigated on two paths, six observation towers offer a good overview and benches invite you to rest. Nine information boards provide you with a lot of interesting facts
