Unique in Germany, more than 30 pairs of storks raise their young in the European stork village of Rühstädt on the Elbe in the Elbe-Brandenburg biosphere reserve. From mid-March, the globetrotters land after thousands of kilometers in the air with a clatter in their large nests on the roofs.

The Rühstädt visitor center therefore offers interesting facts about the white stork in the NABU exhibition “Globetrotter Adebar”. In addition, guests can be there via live transmission when the stork couples feed their young on the roofs in summer. Exciting scenes from the life of a stork are presented in around 30 short videos ranging from moving to funny. For families and the young at heart, the visitor center offers free nature adventure tours, e.g. to the dyke, by bike along the Elbe bend and with a net and magnifying glass to the next pond (explorer tour).
