    It's quite impressive how big a tree becomes and how small we humans are.

    The tree is free-standing and you can see immediately that something special is. Stop, hug the tree and go on! No joke, it's cool that there are real North American redwoods here. One knows only from movies and nature focus on TV. For me a real highlight!

    A side trip is definitely worth it. The sequoias in the Schönbuch are crass. Almost like in Yosemite ;-)

    There are several sequoias or Wellingtonia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) in Tübingen and in Schönbuch near Tübingen, the seeds of which were imported from North America. After this tree species was only discovered by the Europeans in 1850, King Wilhelm I had seeds brought to Europe. Due to a conversion error in the units or a misunderstanding, he received a lot more seeds than he had ordered and had some of them sown at Wilhelma. The sequoias were sown in 1865 at Wilhelma in a cold house under glass, from which around 6000-8000 plants emerged, 3000-4000 were distributed to foresters in Württemberg according to a decree of April 7, 1866. The plants were then schooled in nurseries and later planted out in the open. In the cold winter of 1879/80, however, most of these trees froze to death, the few remaining were distributed over several places in the Schönbuch.
