Nature reserve "Ellergronn"

Description

After years of iron ore mining in the "Kaatzebierg" mines, the landscape is today marked by an incredible natural scenery. After the end of the exploitation, new habitats developed, nature has taken over and the area has today become the protected nature reserve "Ellergronn". This unique area consists of limestone forests, several ponds,  a steam-alder-ash forest and dry grasslands that are typical for the region. The nature reserve is as well part of the Natura 2000 network, a european network aiming to preserve native wild species as well as their natural habitat.
