On the steep hillsides of the Middle- and Lower Moselle, you can find - due to the mild climate - the most northerly presence of free nature common Boxwood in Europe. The in free nature appearing boxwood can be found in an area of approx. 300 hectares between Karden and Müden. On warm days a mediteranean scent can be smelled while strolling around through the vineyards. Even today in the Moselle region the " palm branches " given out on Palm Sunday are gathered from Boxwood twigs; These are hung at home as a bouquet and are said to award God' s blessings.
