The Biodiversum Nature and Forest Centre is located on the edge of the "Haff Réimech" natural reserve. It is home to interactive exhibitions covering two floors in a building boasting remarkable architecture. The themes are related to biodiversity, bird and nature protection as well as the historical and geological evolution of the natural reserve and its region. The centre also offers guided tours and activities for groups and school classes, while it can throw birthday parties for children.
The Biodiversum is not a museum per se. Its role is to bridge the gap between visitors and the natural environment of the region and guide them on this journey of discovery.
The nature centre is the starting point of the discovery trail that takes visitors around the ponds of the "Haff Réimech" reserve. The trails lead visitors to the very heart of this protected area, where they can observe the wealth of the avifauna from several observation cabins.
Over 1,200 square metres and three floors, the Biodiversum's exhibition hall offers many explanatory panels, exhibitions and scale models, as well as around twenty interactive stations and games for children and grownups alike on the following topics: human beings, nature and sustainable development. There, you can learn about the historical development of the Moselle Valley, biodiversity and nature protection, as well as of that of ornithology and the ponds in Remich.
Great crested greb
The great crested greb is a water bird species. It is the mascot of the Biodiversum centre. Ponds of the "Haff Réimech" natural reserve offer perfect conditions for the greb, with its reeds and large water areas.
Since 1975, this beautiful bird of the Podicipedidae family can be observed all year round at the Haff Réimech, where it breeds every year.
The greb builds its floating nest on the edge of reeds. The parents carry the chicks on their back in the first weeks.
