On the nature discovery trail, Willy explains the plants and animals of the forest to his big and small visitors. Knowledge and dexterity can be tested at various play stations, and on the fairy and elf trail little people can look for leftovers from the last feast of the forest creatures. Who knows, maybe the gnomes have lost a few precious stones here?

When you reach the lookout tower, you have to count the steps: how many are there before you have a great view of the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park from the very top?

The Enchanted Forest is very rustic and mysterious. At the car park and the lookout tower, friendly innkeepers cater for the physical well-being of hikers.

Author’s recommendation

The fabulous view from the 25m high observation tower over the Birkenfeld countryside and the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park must be experienced!
