On the cross-border circular walk along the Rodebach, which takes us through the open heath and moorland as well as through the Gangelter Bruch, we may encounter the free-roaming and imposing Scottish Highland Cattle at any time.

The Rodebach-Rodebeek nature reserve, which borders the Teverner Heide to the north, defies its own turbulent history with its tranquillity and diversity. In fact, the idyllic landscape no longer shows its dark history. During the World Wars, the wetland, which was difficult to access, and the then disused canal bed of the Rodebach were repeatedly used for strategic warfare and protection against attacks. To this day, the stream marks the border between Germany and the Netherlands. A special highlight of the hike are the free-ranging Scottish Highland cattle. We encounter these beautiful animals on our hike for a reason. They eat shrub and tree shoots and thus avoid a possible overgrowth of the heath through a natural conservation process. Although the animals are very peaceful, sufficient distance should be kept and dogs must be kept on a leash. The child-friendly tour also takes us past the Gangelt Wildlife Park, which is very popular with young and old alike and provides a

Die Tour war großartig und ist auch für Einsteiger und mit Hund ziemlich gut geeignet. Allerdings muss man seine Kletterfähigkeit beweisen. Wind und Wetter haben auf einem kleinen Teil der Strecke ihr Unwesen getrieben und einen Teil des Weges war gar nicht mehr begehbar, mit der Karte in der App aber gut zu umlaufen. Wir haben ziemlich viele Tiere und unheimlich schöne Landschaft sehen können und sind am Schluss ca. 16 km in 3 Stunden, 33 Minuten gegangen (man muss ja auch mal links und rechts schauen, was es so gibt ;-)). Danke für die tolle Tour!

Sehr schöne Wanderung über zwei Grenzen. Nicht so überlaufen, wie die Teverner oder Brunssumer Heide. Leide führt ein Teil des Rückweges über den stark frequentierten Radweg zwischen Gangelt und der Etzenrather Mühle .
