Tips

  • Sabine

    Unimpressive from the outside, when the dome roof carries leaves. Mystical and beautiful inside. Almost rainy in summer, slightly bizarre in winter. And a little insider tip. :-)

    An exceptional dendrological rarity is this type of beech called Süntelbuche. It is not a breed, but a very rare mutation of the Fagus sylvatica var. Suentelensis. This addition indicates that this species occurs naturally only in the "Süntel", a highland on Jurassic limestone north of Hameln. Because of their bizarre growth, they are popularly called witch beeches. These crippled beech trees are an attraction in every season. Leafy they form an almost rainproof dome roof, after the fall of leaves the snake-shaped branches that are nested several times by kink growth can be admired.

    A really "magical" place. The beech trees have really strange growth forms and in the summer one can see from the inside out, but not vice versa.

    Several beech trees form a kind of pavilion and turn it into a romantic place.

    Bizarre beech formation. The beeches are rather inconspicuous from the outside and look like a small tree hollow, you can easily walk past them. But the inside of this "cave" is worth it. Wonderful, intricate shapes show up there.

    Very beautiful natural forest on the bay. There are many old trees and the crippled beeches. Uniquely beautiful and bizarre at the same time, the way the branches and twigs twist.

    There are some highlights about the cripple beeches, but with inaccurate location information! Here you can see exactly where they are and you don't need to wander around as long as I do to find them. 😉

    I've never seen it like this before. The beeches form a kind of natural tent. The place has something mystical about it.

    Wonderful, tangled trees. Hardly recognizable from the outside, you have to go into a kind of tree hollow.
