Läufelberger Molassefels

Fischingen, Germany

The Läufelberger Molassefels is a break-off edge of the Bamlach-Schallbach loess hill landscape. The stage was significantly shaped by the erosion of the Rhine during the Würm period. On the Läufelberg above Fischingen in the district of Lörrach, special attention is paid to protecting and promoting wild bees. The 1.6-hectare area is home to heat-loving plant communities and numerous insect species. But lizards and smooth snakes can also be found here. A hike offers a beautiful view of vineyards and many birds of prey can be observed. Along the edge of the slope to the new shooting range, you come to a good vantage point with benches. Further to the left there is also a nature dome (tree circle) with a war memorial.


There are only a few picnic and barbecue sites along the way - one is near the Egringen Schützenhaus. There are a few restaurants and shopping facilities in the surrounding villages of Fischingen, Schallbach and Egringen.
