One of the missions of France Nature Reserves is to help the general public to discover protected habitats and species because they are rare or endangered. With this in view, the City of Strasbourg, the managing authority of the Rohrschollen Island Nature Reserve, invites the general public to take part in guided tours in order to explore this island and, more particularly, the Rhine habitat.

Free admission

Car parking facilities are provided on the French side (before and after the locks) and on the German side. A cycle track following the Alsace canal dyke also leads to and crosses the site. Signposted trails (the Greylag Goose trail, the Old Rhine trail, the Gallery Forest trail) allow visitors to explore the ecological treasures on show.
