The Stallberg fish ponds are located in the Gagelbestand nature reserve. At these ponds you will find some Common Kingfisher. The water bodies, created by man near prehistoric burial mounds, were largely left to themselves and have since developed into a retreat for animals and plants, such as the gale bush and the royal fern.



800 metres away is the Stallberg Parkplatz car park. Click on a P in the map to get directions. The bus stop "Siegburg Deutzer-Hof-Str." is also 700 metres away. The total length of the route indicated on the map is about 7 km.
