The Camargue Regional Nature Park is a small part of the Camargue area in southern France. The very flat landscape is interspersed with large swamp areas and many areas can therefore not be discovered by tourists.

What is a disadvantage for the tourists encourages the local wildlife. Attentive visitors may even spot wild horses in the accessible parts of the landscape. You can certainly watch numerous flamingos, which are looking for small crabs in the shallow water with their curved beaks.

While the northern part of the Camargue is very fertile and fruit, vegetables and even rice are grown there, the northern part is rather barren. A plant that wants to grow and thrive in the marshes of the Camargue Natural Park must be very salt and water tolerant. The southern part of the Camargue is therefore determined more by the salt extraction.

Salt Pans (Salin-de-Giraud)

Adjacent to the Camargue Natural Park is the town of Salin-de-Giraud. There is a small observation hill from which the large salt pans can be seen.

How to get there?

The saline in Salin-de-Giraud is somewhat hidden and our navigation system has not told us the right way to get there. In the following picture, the viewpoint is marked with the red symbol. There is enough space on site to park the car.

Conclusion:
The regional nature park of the Camargue is very large but also very barren as described above. Since the roads are not in very good condition, the car trips take a long time and you can only see the same flat landscape over and over again, which of course also has its charm with the animals there.
The saltworks observation point in Salin-de-Giraud offers a nice photo motif, but everyone has to consider whether a detour is worth it.

We were here: 2019

Monaco | Port Hercule

Côte d’Azur – Where the rich and beautiful live!

On this journey we hiked on unknown paths. Usually we are always drawn to the north. We should have taken the wrong turn somewhere, because we ended up in the south – more precisely in the south of France!
On our trip we immersed ourselves in the world of fragrances, hiked in the mountains of Andorra, visited the palace of Prince Albert II in Monaco, discovered the cities along the Côte d’Azur and tasted the culinary highlights of France. But let’s start at the beginning: Here comes our travel report from our adventure in the south of France.

Weihnachten in Schönbrunn | Christmas in Schönbrunn

Schönbrunn Christmas market

The Christmas market in front of Schönbrunn Palace has been in existence for more than 25 years. So it was more than just time for us to visit it. Traditional but also surprising moments awaited us at the largest Christmas market in Vienna.
Here you can learn more about what we have experienced here.
