Have you always wanted to know how long a bee has to work for a jar of honey? How do the industrious insects exchange information? Do bees only sting when they are threatened?

The Kappenberg above Ulmen is buzzing and humming. Busy honey bees are tirelessly searching for pollen between purple heath and orchards. A few beekeepers have come up with something very special for this idyllic spot: a 1.5 km bee trail illustrates the life and work of these important farm animals. Experience points entice you to observe and marvel. Information boards illustrate exciting details about bees and beekeeping. Relaxing loungers invite you to close your eyes and listen to the colourful goings-on. And the honey bread tastes especially sweet at the picnic area.

Honey bees are not only exciting to watch when collecting nectar in the many flowerpots. Protected by a pane of glass, you can catch a glimpse of their landing approach at the beehive, their legs heavily laden with pollen. In the flight path to their dwellings, it is bubbling. The entrances to the hives are closely guarded, and the bees defend their hive in an impressive manner.

Author’s recommendation

Sit back and relax on the recliners, put your legs up, close your eyes and just listen to the bees buzzing!

So beautiful!

Langweilig, nicht kindgerecht, ohne roten Faden. Pädagogisch wertlos. Sehr schade, weil es ein wichtiges Thema ist.
