In spite of urban development, the Rhine valley is remarkably rich in flora and fauna and the jewel in its crown is the alluvial forest. This forest has managed to remain relatively unspoilt, but development along the Rhine has altered the dynamic of the river.
One of these forests can be found on Rohrschollen Island, only 10 km from Strasbourg city centre.
Follow the N 353 (the so-called southern ring road) towards Offenburg. Before you reach the Pflimlin Bridge over the Rhine, take the exit for the Port of Strasbourg and, at the roundabout, head for the incineration plant (usine d’incinération). Continue until you reach Strasbourg hydroelectric plant (usine hydroélectrique de Strasbourg) (follow the signposts). Go past the plant and take the right fork (surfaced road): park in the parking area provided.
