This is a wonderful place for bird-lovers and photographers. I would only criticise the opening hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in September, for example. Such a shame as this means that you miss the beautiful light in both the morning and evening. If you...More

We didn't realise when we booked to stay for 2 nights in Le Teich that there was a bird reserve on the doorstep. We spent well over 5 hours going round the reserve and had a wonderful visit. I would recommend you take a picnic...More

Just superb! But Reserve Ornithologique du Teich is not just for birders, the 6km walk around the reserve is enjoyable for all who like the outdoors. Very good paths, a fine route map, well placed facilities, and if you do want to bird watch there...More

Don't think 'Le Teich' is for sunny days only - wrong! Buy yourself an eight day subscription which allows you into the reserve at weekends at 7am or 8am depending on the time of the year. Le Teich on an early cold winter's morning is...More

Compliments to all the people who have contributed to making this reserve into the place it has become. Well marked paths take you from one shelter to another and most of the time these offer a new sight. Very nice constructions as well and we...More

A brilliant place to forget the hustle and bustle of life. Observing the birds from the hides was super relaxing. We highly recommend getting binoculars at the ticket office. Worth the 3 euros extra.

We spent two and a half hours following the suggested trail, visiting the observation posts as well as the new, high lookout point. We saw lots of birds and the images above the observation points proved invaluable for bird identification. The walk was pleasant in...More

Réserve Ornithologique Du Teich is an absolute must visit for anyone interested in birding. The park is about a 6 km long loop (3.6 miles) that has 20 bird blinds (hides/observatories) for viewing various waterbirds that inhabit the area. The best viewing is during high...More

If you like birds, nature, wetlands or even all of these then this is a must see visit. The setting is tranquil and very few hides fail to reveal something of interest. The pathways are flat and readily walkable and there are options to meet...More

In general, I'd say, yes, it is, although the viewing experience might be restricted somewhat. The paths are not paved or tarred so might prove difficult in wet weather. Not all lookout points have ramps up/into them as I... More

I don't think there is. We camped (in our motorhome) on the space outside reserved for camping cars and had to wait until 10am to get in. I would like to have been in around 6am but could not.
