Liechtenstein 2016, Nature Reserve Rugeller Riet.

The Ruggeller Riet Nature Reserve is spanning an area of around 90 hectares of peatland in the northernmost region of Liechtenstein. Its rich variety of fauna and, in particular, flora makes it a fascinating region for nature-lovers. Fens, ponds and litter meadows provide an ideal habitat for a host of endangered species and plants. One main attraction of the recreational area is the blossom of the Siberian Iris in May and June which covers large areas of the nature reserve in a carpet of magnificent blue.  

Liechtenstein 2017, Nature Reserve Campriner Seelein.

With a surface area of 1.53 hectares, Lake Gampriner Seelein was created through extreme erosion, known as “scouring”, during a flood of the Rhine River in 1927. In 1961, the scenic spot was declared a protected area by the government. With its belt of silt and the surrounding gallery forest, the lake provides a habitat for valuable aquatic flora and for many birds and small animals.
