Bislicher Insel

The Bislicher Insel is one of the biggest natural floodplains in the Lower Rhine and is in sight of Xanten Cathedral. The impressive natural area is an important bird conservation area and an tip for a day trip if you like being in nature. You come here if you want to learn something fascinating about the dynamics of the Rhine, its floodplain and the impact of man on this unique landscape because the Nature Forum, which is in the middle of the island, will give you an understanding of this. The Nature Forum is a starting point for hikes and guided excursions into the Bislicher Insel conservation area if you don’t want to explore on your own. Benches outside invite you to take a rest in the shade of old fruit trees. The AuenCafé takes care of your physical well-being.
