The unique nature and setting of the Valle area lies on the western slope of the Billingen plateau. In only 2700 acres lie six nature reserves each with distinct flora, fauna and geology. Here you will find an old cultural landscape with pastures, field stone mounds. But you will also find hardwood copses and calcareous bogs with orchids, flowering fields and peaceful fishing lakes.
Every spring the cranes offer a fantastic spectacle at Lake Hornborga. The cranes arrive in their thousands and rest here for a short time at the lake, before flying on to breeding grounds in the north.
