Our guides are local residents who know the nature reserve inside out. They enjoy introducing this unique landscape to visitors on themed walks and at events for children and adults. Each walk offers fascinating insights into the diversity of life in the natural wetlands, riparian woodlands, pastures, meadow orchards, and hedgerows as well as around the former Roman fort of Haus Bürgel.

On a one-year course funded by the European Union, the Haus Bürgel Eco Centre in collaboration with the NRW Nature and Environmental Protection Academy trained twenty-six volunteers as guides. They learned how the interaction of nature and humans shapes the landscape, refreshed their knowledge of local history and traditions, and honed their communication skills, learning how to engage with visitors and provide a wonderful experience of nature.

All guides completed seventy hours of intensive theoretical and practical training which included wetlands ecology, zoology, botany, and didactic skills. To become certified guides, participants had to submit a written dissertation as well as plan and lead a guided walk. We are pleased to say that in September 2014 all participants were awarded the title "Certified Nature and Landscape Guide for the Urdenbacher Kämpe Wetlands" a guarantee of expertise from which all visitors participating in guided walks will benefit.
