Siebengebirge Nature Reserve

The strikung scenery with wooded hilltops in this area close to Bonn, Königswinter and Bad Honef is the result of volcanic activity and erosion. The Siebengebirge can be described as the ruins of different volcanic eruptions. The present 300 - 460 m summits consist of solid rock from which the tuff ashes were removed by erosion. Much of the reserve comprises beechwood communities with xerothermal features characteristic of oakwood with hornbeam. Since 2010 - basing on the 2009 resolution of the European Parliament on wildernis areas in Europe - part of the reserve is the first official wildernis area in North-Rhine-Westphalia outside national parks.
