This plateau near the village of Rescheid has a good view from an elevated point. It is a quiet location where you can see hunting Red Kite, breeding Skylark, Meadow Pipit and European Stonechat. During migration periods you have a chance to see Whinchat and Northern Wheatear. Also an area where you can encounter Great Grey Shrike.



Good parking opportunities on the gravel surfaces of the wind turbines. Asphalted access road, beautiful possibilities of a circular route, including a quiet valley location. The circular walk indicated on the map is about 6 km long.
