The aim of the project “Bergisches Habitat – Erfahrungsfelder der Natur”, a part of the important European Fauna-Flora Habitat “Wupper von Leverkusen bis Solingen”, is to make possible nature-centred tourism and the experience of nature in harmony with the protection of animals, plants and their biotopes. However, the concept does not merely focus on communicating knowledge, but also on reaching visitors emotionally, and thus creating a novel and more sustainable connection with nature and nature-related issues. The association of art and nature plays a major role here. Its purpose is to help reinforce the attachment to the native natural and cultural space and enhance understanding of the value of the animal and plant environments that thrive here.
In the course of this project, the nature information at Müngsten Bridge Park was expanded and tree and forest experience paths were created in the habitat area itself. Other areas were “decelerated” with the aid of artistic guidance sculptures and conventional guidance actions such as plantings and closings of pathways.
Aside from this website, an information terminal at Haus Müngsten, the app “Brückenpark Müngsten”, the flyer about the tree and forest experience path and the hiking map “Natur erleben zwischen Müngsten und Burg” show the many exciting things and activities waiting for you to discover them at the Bridge Park and in the surrounding habitat area.
The project “Bergisches Habitat – Erfahrungsfelder der Natur” is a project of Biologische Station Mittlere Wupper, implemented in cooperation with the cities of Remscheid and Solingen and funded by the European Union – European Regional Development Fund “Investition in unsere Zukunft”.
