This easy hike brings you through the protected wetlands around the Biber river, in the Ägeriried valley. Cultivated fields alternate with reeds, groves, pastures and humid areas. Several smaller paths allow you to extend the hike but some of them may be flooded during snow melt or after heavy rains. This wetland was the first one to get protected on the 6th december 1987, when the initiative to protect wetlands was accepted by the Swiss Citizens.
