A renatured space on the Rhine island

Stroll between the Old Rhine and the Grand Canal d'Alsace and discover what was the largest renaturation site in Europe.
Today, the Rhine Island is a mosaic of land and water spaces, very diverse and conducive to the development of biodiversity.
On the 100 hectares formerly dedicated to the cultivation of corn, a large-scale ecological renaturation has been carried out including the restoration of an arm of the river over more than seven kilometers, thus giving birth to a new river in Alsace. A set of natural, wet and dry environments has been restored and allows the maintenance or return of certain species of amphibians, birds and mammals.
The map of the walks is downloadable, the routes can be done on foot or by mountain bike. :
Circuit 10: "Grand tour of the island of the Rhine" of 12 km.
Circuit 9: 3,5 km "Petit-Rhin" to "Vieux-Rhin" path on the southern tip of the island. To do this little circuit of the renatured Rhine Island on foot only, the Access by car is via the Märkt dam, from the German side, so you have to cross the Palmrain cross-border bridge and take the street named "Alte Strasse" to the Märkt car park (see map).
Circuit 7: "Rhine escapades trail" 3,5 km north of the island. To discover the northern tip of the island and its pretty "Istein bar" made up of small rapids in the rocky bed of the Old Rhine, the circuit is accessible by Kembs-Loechlé.
