The Aare: nature reserve
"On this circular mountain bike tour of Aarberg, via the nature reserves of Niederried and Wohlen, you will discover medieval houses, beautiful landscapes, lakes and nature reserves. The ride starts off with a gradual warm up, giving you the opportunity to admire the stunning scenery, all the way to the lake at Niederried, which is a first rate nature reserve. Many rare aquatic birds find a haven here, and nestle amongst the reeds. The river Aare is dammed in several places providing a source of renewable hydro-electricity. There is a similar environment around Lake Wohlen, which is also sheltered from the construction of roads and houses, allowing the plants and wildlife around these areas to develop wonderfully."
