Nature conservation; nature conservation areas in the urban area

Stand: 28.05.2024

The "Brucker Lache" (75 ha) and the former "Exerzierplatz" in Röthelheimpark (25 ha) are designated nature reserves in the city area. The nature reserve "Tennenloher Forst" close to the city with the wild horse project of the Landschaftspflegeverband Mittelfranken is located in the district of Erlangen-Höchstadt.

Nature reserves are designated in accordance with Section 23 of the Federal Nature Conservation Act in order to either achieve special protection for the preservation of communities of certain wild animal or wild plant species or to set a focus worthy of protection for ecological, scientific or natural history reasons or because of their beauty. Erlangen's two nature conservation areas represent the strictest form of protection in the city area, as they are generally subject to prohibitions.

The designation of nature conservation areas is carried out by the government of Middle Franconia as the higher nature conservation authority.

On Silbergrasweg in Röthelheimpark, you can find out more about the adjacent Exerzierplatz nature reserve at the nature conservation pavilion.

The information pavilion with sand garden

From April to September, every first Wednesday of the month from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., the pavilion is a meeting place with information about nature conservation. The Exerzierplatz nature reserve shows the beauty and uniqueness of the sandy soil flora. The adjacent sand garden can be visited throughout the year.
The core area of the southern parade ground is designated as a nature reserve and is one of the most important sand habitats in Bavaria. It is an important refuge for endangered or threatened plant and animal species.

With its near-natural design, the sand garden shows the beauty and uniqueness of the sandy soil flora. Here you can familiarize yourself with the most important and attractive plants of Erlangen's typical sandy habitats.

With information on nature conservation, the information pavilion is a meeting place for all interested parties. Visit us from April to September, every first Wednesday of the month from 2 to 5 pm. The sand garden can be visited all year round.

The information pavilion is located in the new Röthelheimpark district on the north side of the Exerzierplatz nature reserve. Access is signposted. In the interest of our environment, please use your bicycle or public transportation (bus line 293, stop Schenkstraße).

The Tennenlohe Forest Experience Center teaches about the importance of the forest. Here you will find, among other things, interesting facts about the Brucker Lache.
