Bird tower at dam Lutz Koch
The Golden Aue stretches across the northern reaches of the Kyffhäuser Nature Park. The Kelbra reservoir, built as flood protection, lies in the triangle formed by the municipalities of Kelbra, Berga and Auleben. Not just the 600-hectare water surface but the vast reed beds and grasslands too offer ideal conditions for more than 300 species of birds. This area, an internationally important breeding and resting ground, has been declared a European bird sanctuary.
Visit the world of cranes, gulls and white-tailed eagles. Several options for bird watching are available on the shore of the reservoir in Kelbra.
The bird tower on the eastern shore of the lake, directly between Kelbra and the Kelbra reservoir, serves dual purposes of species protection and bird observation. The walls of the former transformer station shelter nesting, sleeping and overwintering places for birds and bats. From the roof of the tower you'll have an impressive panoramic view over the reservoir.
