    The Nahequelle, which is the source of the River Nahe, can be found in an idyllic setting in the forest near Selbach. A wildlife enclosure with a large population of wildlife including ducks, geese, peacocks, goats and deer is situated close to the source. The wildlife enclosure is a fun experience, especially for families with children. For letting off steam, there are a playground for climbing, a water playground as well as four fitness stations. The bee nature trail will teach you all sorts of interesting facts about these valuable and hard-working insects. A comfortable BBQ hut offers plenty of space for celebrations and parties in the midst of nature.

    The Nahequelle is also the starting point for the popular cycle route “Nahe-Radweg” along the River Nahe. The distance from the source to the mouth in Bingen is approximately 125 km. In addition, three Nordic Walking routes and various hiking trails start at the Nahequelle, including the child-friendly, six-kilometre "Nahequelle Pfad" premium hiking trail.
