The restored Ruggeller Riet

The Ruggeler Riet Nature Reserve is a haven of peace and tranquility on the valley floor.

The peat-rich Ruggeller Riet Nature Reserve covers an area of 90 hectares in the northernmost region of Liechtenstein. Its rich variety of local fauna and, in particular, flora makes it a fascinating region perfect for nature-lovers.

Lowland moors, ponds, hedges, trees and litter meadows provide an ideal habitat for many endangered animals and plants. Even the stork has returned to the region. The spectacular blossom of the Siberian iris in late May and early June is an annual highlight and covers large areas of the nature reserve in a carpet of blue.

The spot where the canal flows into the Rhine has been restored in recent years and now has a barbeque area created in Weinbau. With its gravelstone banks and large dam, the Rhine itself is also a source of peace and tranquility for those looking to explore the river on foot, by bike or using inline skates. The cycle paths in the region are connected to the network leading to Austria and Switzerland.
