Altreu Stork Colony

"Even today, the storks really do perch in their nests on the high roofs of the farmhouses in Altreu. Since 1948, the Altreu stork colony has endeavoured to ensure the wellbeing of the stork. This was our chance to observe the storks. During our family excursion last summer, we visited the information centre; we even took a guided tour so as to learn more about these creatures. Protected nature and plentiful fauna – we were inspired."
