1. Holy halls
This may sound weird, but this is a wonderful winter walk in the Feldberg lakes leads to a single lake. But cross through the forest, past bogs, along an ancient Causeway, which is lined with tall Book of ancient oak trees and the house. The trail meanders past the knobbly boulders, which have hergerollt the glaciers of the last ice age, and through the hilly end moraine landscape. And best of All, You don't encounter anyone in the Winter. Even the white storks that nest here in the summer, already well on the way to the South. A woodpecker knocks, the Wind rustles through the treetops, otherwise monumental silence.
they are all alone, the hallowed halls, as probably the oldest beech forest in Germany. Your solemn name you were given, because the trees Grew with their pillar-like, straight, and high crowns of the Gothic cathedrals remind. Today, some strains are over 350 years old and 50 meters high. Some are toppled over, their roots sticking up in the height of the trunks to rot slowly. Since the nature reserve is under absolute protection, must be removed no deadwood.
Alive, the road begins Southeast of the village of lütten Hagen. There is a small Arboretum to grow, in the end of the 19th century. Century were planted rare woods. After two kilometers on an old paved path, turn left. The beech forest may not be entered according to the forest service for safety reasons. Trees and Branches could fall down. But also on the Herrenweg, the runs through the trees, you can feel the imposing forest and how he himself is up to. After a good four kilometres, you reach in a total of two walking hours on an Avenue lined with Apple trees and rose hips lütten Hagen hedges.
Five minutes drive away, the Inn Tenzo is in Triepkendorf. That is, Japanese monastery cook. The Japanophilie the operator shows in the beautiful ceramics on the tables, and even in the courts, the Marcus Sapion is cooking in the former village school. The down-to-earth, with organic products from the Region – and often with an Asian Twist. The fallow deer with spiced mole is seasoned with Togarashi, a Japanese sesame pepper. Still a Sweet? The walnut cake in the Rosalienhof in Beentz is the stop.
