Hiking through the Raddusch Dragonfly Path

Dragonflies are among the most interesting and largest native insects. Like all other insects, their population is endangered, which can have far-reaching consequences for the ecosystem.

The Raddusch Dragonfly Park is intended to help sensitise children in particular to these insects, which are often unjustly ignored. They can immerse themselves in the world of dragonflies through play, and there are colouring and handicraft materials available in the nearby harbour hotel. In order to cater to all age groups and to offer a tourist attraction all year round, an adjacent art and adventure trail is under construction, but can already be visited. Artists from the region can exhibit their works here on the theme "Nature is sensitive". The path leads from the Radduscher Naturhafen along the dyke parallel to the punt route; it is in its natural state and can also be walked as a circular route in dry weather.

  • Start and finish: Raddusch natural harbour
  • Length: 2 kilometres or 4 kilometres there and back
  • Condition: barrier-free, however, the weather-related condition of the path can cause difficulties at times.
  • Things to see along the way: Art objects, animals (insects, birds), rare plants.

Further information on the art and adventure trail can be found here.
