The Luer Forest with Bieber Valley is a FFH area and nature reserve covering an area of more than 25 square kilometres with extensive near-natural Beech and Oak dominated mixed forests on acidic soils. Numerous forest streams cross the area, and finally flow into the Bieber Stream.
Distance 5.1 km
The typical birds of the Luer Forest are species of near-natural woodland. With a little luck you can hear the drumming of a Black Woodpecker or the harsh voice of the Raven. While Middle Spotted Woodpecker is another typical inhabitant of the forest, the Grey-headed Woodpecker forages for its food in the meadows of the floodplain. There, along the Bieber Bach, you can also observe the Kingfisher, while the waters are home to such demanding species as the Crested Newt and the Bullhead.
The Stag Beetle is only to be found at a few locations in the Sauerland. The imposing beetle needs old, sunlit Oaks in open woodlands, such as the Luer Forest.
