Großes Veen (DE-4205-301)

At a surface area of 90 hectares, Großes Veen is the smallest of the three Natura2000 sites in Diersfordter Wald. It is a complex of open dunes, moors, pine and oak woods. Due north-east, these form the entire Diersfordter Wald’s boundary along the Wesel/Emmerich railway line and the Isselniederung’s agricultural region.

In Großes Veen, we find the largest and best formed heath moors with Erico-Sphagnetum and Sphagno-Rhynchosporetum plant communities typical of the northern Lower Rhine. There are also low-nutrient waters and regeneration stages of small peat-ditches, which make for an unusual variety of small habitats.

The site is of state-wide importance as a retreat for the moors’ flora and fauna. Leucorrhinia pectoralis, Rana arvalis and rare plants like Andromeda polifolia, Eriophorum vaginatum and Drosera intermedia are a few of those that make Großes Veen something really special.

Since 2011, you can experience Großes Veen by taking a ca. 2.5 km nature path. It is best accessed by the north-eastern deer enclosure entrance in Diersfordter Wald.

For further information, please consult the Natura2000-Document and the nature reserve Diersfordter Wald description.
