    Northwest of Jena in the Rautal near Closewitz you will find the largest contiguous mass occurrence of blooming winterlings from the beginning to mid-February. You can now admire around 1.6 million plants in an area of around 5,000 square meters. The scent is just as bewitching. A circular route is very well signposted. Really a very recommendable natural spectacle.

    The winterlings look very nice, should you have to go.

    oldest tree in the reserve;
    Circumference 4.65 meters, age over 300 years. Raised in the wild and therefore not regularly pruned, which allowed a considerable crown to develop. There is a boundary stone at the foot, the oak presumably marked the boundary between Closewitz and Zwatzen.

    In spring, the winterlings are like a yellow carpet

    The winderlings are not there yet. They just look out of the ground

    Once a winterling in the garden, he soon succesfully completes his stay. Yellow blood carpet

    Winterlinge is native to Europe in the woodland habitats appearing late winter and early spring.

    It is a unique splendor to see winterlings as a yellow carpet in the forest to this extent.
