Haltepunkt Natur: Auenblick (Deichrückverlegung Lenzen)

More room for the river

“Down with the dike! Long live the dike!” seems to be the motto in this place. Explore the old part of the embankment, pass a riparian forest that's still in the fledgling state, and enjoy the view over the Elbe, which was given more room to unfold here. This model project of nature protection is the first of its kind in Germany and shows how conservation of nature benefits humans, and cultural landscapes. The flood plains created protect from floods and are a habitat for many species of animals and plants at the same time. Grazing sheep and horses are used for landscape conservation purposes. This is a great area with a lot to see. Hike along the 7 kilometres long path as well.
