Where Gose Elbe and Dove Elbe meet, lies the delightful landscape of the small nature reserve Die Reit. Past small lakes and ponds, you walk through primeval, swampy beech forest. From the Reit dike, your gaze sweeps over green meadows and waving reed beds.

In springtime it jumps, leaps and croaks at the riding dike. Frogs and toads move from their winter quarters to the spawning waters and loudly compete for females. Meanwhile, above their heads, on the meadows and in the branches, you can watch birds. The Reit is an important breeding and resting area. But butterflies and fish also feel visibly at home in the nature reserve.
