Heck cattle in the Wulfener Bruch
Founded by NABU’s regional Köthen association in 2002, the “Primigenius Köthener Naturschutz und Landschaftspflege gGmbH” handles nature conservation and landscape management projects in the Wulfener Bruch and in other areas of Central Germany. With the help of large grazing animals such as Heck cattle and robust horses (Koniks), Primigenius carries out extensive year-round grazing and thus secures habitats for endangered animal and plant species. Currently, Primigenius manages 145 hectares of grassland at the Wulfen site.
Tour guide Kornelia Klaus alias “Marketeer Brunnhilde“ (Marktfrau Brunnhilde).
Brunnhilde lived 450 years ago in the Middle Ages. With stories, wit and humor, Kornelia Klaus leads visitors through Brunnhilde’s life, giving lots of hints regarding history. Visitors experience the arduous life of a marketeer in a way they’ll never forget. For Brunnhilde wears medieval clothes and is always in a good mood, no matter if it is raining or snowing.
The various tours and lectures featuring Brunnhilde are popular for family reunions, as birthday gifts or as highlights for class reunions. Go on a journey through time and into the old Anhalt dialect, as this marketeer certainly speaks in her native “Anhältsch,” but no worries. She really makes herself understood.
