Along the banks of the Rhine in the District of Wesel, from the Lower Rhenish range of hills to Hohe Mark Nature Park, idyllic natural areas, villages and towns with mediaeval flair, and attractive museums can be found. The Halden (slag heaps) are a reminder of the region’s mining tradition and have evolved into attractions for physically active people as well as those seeking peace and quiet.
The Rhine shapes the landscape with its biodiverse old branches and plains lined with pollarded trees and poplars. The river formed the border of the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago and keeps Roman history alive today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Lower Germanic Limes.
Meadow orchards are a characteristic element of the Lower Rhenish cultural landscape. Old homegrown varieties of fruit form the basis for many regional specialities offered at farm shops in the District of Wesel. Farm cafés and inns with regional menus offer a short break from your routine in a cosy atmosphere.
