Carl Zeiss Vogelstation
Right behind Fährmannssand you can find the Carl Zeiss Vogelstation in the Wedeler Marsch. It is run since 1984 by the NABU Hamburg (an environmental group) and is very popular among birdlovers. Bekassines, cormorants, ducks and peewits can be observed from small woodhouses, called “hides”.
The main NABU-house offers telescopes to watch the nests and you can lend binoculars if you leave your passport as a deposit. Please do not leave children unattended with these binoculars.
You can check any birds you just spotted on big wallcharts in every hide.
This weekend the NABU invites to celebrate the bird “Kiebitz”: Little nature scouts can explore the world of the Kiebitz bird during special children tours at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Further, they can have a lot of fun with the youth club for nature conservation Wedel and the “fox-automobile” of the NABU. The program does also foresee a little olympic parcours with great prices for adults and children.
Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays (except christmas and new year) from 10 am to 4 pm
Entrance is free of charge
My thanks go out to Moni who visited the place and made these lovely fotos!
By the way, if you fancy eating self made giant cakes in rural and quaint atmosphere then you should pay the Obstparadies Kleinwort a visit!
