    A stop and the "climb up" is worth it. Nice view over the Rheingau.

    IRON TREE
    There should be people who hear the grass growing. In one of the most beautiful places in Flörsheim Switzerland visitors can even listen to the trees chattering. Well, at least a tree. A very special one: the iron tree. When the weather is nice, the artificial giant with viewing platform tells its own story - with the help of photovoltaic cells!

    It is by no means the blue of the sky that chatters down the whimsical tree on the small plateau between Flörsheim, Wicker and Hochheim. Much more tells the 18-meter high and 38-ton installation, what's up with her on it. Even at the distance, the strange metal giant above the Wickerbachaue captivates hikers and cyclists. This is partly due to the dry foliage branches, on the other hand up the stairs to the observation deck. If you come closer, the riddle unfolds little by little. The light green "leaves" are 70 to 70 centimeters large, three millimeters thick metal sheets. The "trunk" with the ten "branches" is screwed together from twelve millimeter-thick, rhombic metal elements. Similar to the branches, which consist of up to 29 individual parts. The "roots" are 24 screws of 140 centimeters in length and 3.5 centimeters in diameter. On the way up to the viewing platform at a height of nine meters, the iron tree first receives natural sounds such as wind noise and birdsong. Then he begins to tell his story ...

    The iron tree stands in a scenic nature reserve. From the two platforms of the tree offers a great view over the surrounding countryside. The tree has a solar powered sound system. Therefore, "the tree is silent in the night and speaks during the day" as soon as one enters the upper platform. One learns from the tree details about its construction. The tree also points out that it is clearly recognizable as an artificial tree - in contrast to genetically modified trees.

    If you are lucky and the sun is shining, the tree will even begin to speak and tell its story - solar modules make it possible! ;-) ... Unfortunately it was already too dark on my last tour ... But from there I was able to enjoy the sunset perfectly.
