Cycling route through Muggenbeet (mosquito bite)
As a village you will still be called Muggenbeet. That is not exactly a name that will attract many tourists. But still the little Muggenbeet (25 people live there) is worth it, as it is located in National Park Weerribben-Wieden. The village owes its name to the mücken beecke that runs through Muggenbeet, not to the annoying bites. This is Saxon for 'small brook'. This was very quickly made worse: already at the beginning of the 14th century it was described as 'Mugghenbete'.
Fortunately, there are few mosquitoes here, but this nature reserve does contain many birds, butterflies and dragonflies! Stepping-off points such as the bird-watching hut, watchtower or observation platform are perfect places to rest for a while and to spot these birds.
