Discovery loop Baumberger Aue



8,05 km long
theme trail
The Baumberger Discovery Loop connects the cozy town center of Baumberg with the unique floodplain landscape of the Urdenbacher Kämpe. Stroll through the shops along the main street, experience the history of eel fishing and enjoy the wonderful nature of the Urdenbacher Kämpe.

The Baumberger Discovery Loop begins at the car park on Klappertorstraße, where the listed Aalschokker "Fiat Voluntas" has been lovingly restored and is elevated on the banks of the Rhine. Since the summer of 2019, there has been an eel fishing museum on board, which vividly tells the story of eel fishing on the Rhine. The discovery loop takes you along the banks of the Rhine and through the lush meadows of the Rhine foothills in the direction of Baumberger Dorfplatz. The town's landmark, the Catholic Church of St. Dionysius, awaits you there.

Via the tranquil main road you finally reach the Urdenbacher Kämpe and the edge of the old Rhine bed, where many waterfowl have their habitat. Along old pollarded willows, whose caves provide shelter for the rare little owl, the route leads to the Garather Mühlenbach. There you meet the neanderland STEIG, which leads you to the former Roman fort Haus Bürgel. This place, which is worth seeing and steeped in history, is now home to a Roman museum, a biological station and a heavy horse farm. Through the forest in the Baumberger Aue nature reserve you get back to the Klappertorstraße.
