    "Wild Willow" - What is it?
    The military past of the area has created a steppe-like landscape due to lack of agricultural use, with a concentration of endangered or endangered plant and animal species. These must now be protected and preserved.
    The grassland is used in the sense of the concept of semi-open or open pastures, colloquially "Wilde Weiden".
    Behind this is a landscape management concept, which foresees, through extensive, extensive grazing, to prevent changes in habitat quality and yet to provide enough space for the natural dynamic processes of landscape change. The requirements of species, biotope and environmental protection should be met while allowing for extensive agricultural use and commercialization.
    The aim is to create an environmentally friendly, natural and affordable agricultural use and to preserve valuable habitats.
    On the Höltigbaum Galloway cattle, Heidschnucken and Highland cattle graze, so-called Robust breeds, all year round and without feeding the areas. Grazing keeps the land open, preventing reforestation and preserving biodiversity.
    Detailed information on the concept of the open pasture landscape as well as the project "Wilde Weiden Höltigbaum" can be found in the scientific accompanying study, the trial and development project "Semi-open pasture landscape Höltigbaum". The study can be downloaded below (PDF).

    The "Wild Willow House" is a place of environmental education for day care centers, schools, families and adult groups. It is open on the weekend. Banks are ideal for a hiking break.

    A great information house especially for those who do not know the Höltigbaum yet. Here you will find information about origins, development and goals - and, of course, about the Robustins who cross here everywhere.
