An old estuary, the Zwin natural reserve consists of salt pans, marshes and woods, and is ideal for walking or bicycling. You can also see several birds: more than one hundred species appreciate the marshes and ponds in the reserve. Storks, ducks and herons are in abundance on this charmingly wild land. Do not forget your boots and binoculars to make the most of it!
