Following the lives of storks live

The village with the biggest stork population in Germany is located directly on the Elbe Cycle Path between Havelberg and Wittenberge. Every year almost 30 pairs of storks clatter in their nests. The people of Rühstadt have a special relationship with “Master Adebar”, because almost every family has “their” stork pair as guests on the house or barn roof in spring and summer. Every year the eyries are prepared for the globetrotter before the white storks arrive in Rühstädt from their long journey. After successfully rearing their young, all storks set out on the long journey to Africa in August. What remains then are interesting scenes of the stork family on the tower roof of the NABU visitor center, which were recorded by the stork camera. Selected film sequences tell of stork life in the nest, of funny and tragic moments. NABU Brandenburg runs the exhibition “Weltenbummler Adebar” in the visitor center in Rühstädt. There you can try out, look and discover the many aspects of storks for yourself.

Do you dare fly across the Elbe on the back of a goose?

The exhibition of the visitor center is located in the medieval castle tower and in the historical half-timbered barn of the Slavic royal castle Lenzen. Audio stations, computer animations, films, valuable original objects and large-format picture and text boards with peeping holes will take you into the exciting natural and cultural history of the region. In the outer area of ​​the castle, the natural poetry garden awaits you to stroll and relax, as well as the AuenReich. Germany’s first interactive floodplain area stretches out on a circular path of around 400 meters. Six adventure stations invite you to relax, be amazed and participate. The floodplain habitat attracts you to a water game table in the 'WasserReich'. There you can create a river landscape and test what it would look like in the event of flooding. You use sand and clay to create the course of the river and the dyke, and then a pump is used to say “Water march!” And it shows whether a flood threatens the dykes or whether the river has enough space to expand. Another highlight is the tree suspension bridge in the 'WaldReich'. Here you can use permanently installed floodplain telescopes to explore shy species that live in an alluvial forest. And for everyone who wants to take it easy, there are two outdoor loungers in the 'GenussReich'. The rule here is: close your eyes and open your ears in order to be aware of the various noises of the floodplain.

With Jakob and Freya on the trail of a lost city

The invisible city of Freyenstein with its medieval streets and houses is hidden tightly under the surface of the earth. Although life was often difficult back then, the people were simply poor and the winters were rough, you can hear the laughter of children playing and the daily work of the ambitious residents if you listen closely enough. The numerous traces of the city should continue to be hidden underground as ground monuments, because there they are protected and safe. They still hold a lot of information about the inhabitants of the old Freyenstein and their lives. Let the two town children Jakob and Freya take you back to the Middle Ages with an audio guide and get to know one or two citizens during your walk.
