    We started today at the old train station in Eichen.This old, listed building is owned by a 68-year-old Frankfurt railway enthusiast and was bought by the train in 2014 for a symbolic fee of 1 euro 👍🙂 and has been rebuilt since.
    However, he had to pay the local price for the approximately 800 square meter property.
    ***********
    Then we went to a place where there are 4 mysterious concrete bases.
    Even after a long pondering, it never occurred to us what these plinths were good for.
    ***********
    The next point of contact was the reconstruction of a Limes watchtower near Rommelshausen, which was inaugurated on August 2013.
    This tower is open up to the middle floor (at least on today's tour) and can also be accessed at any time.
    ***********
    The last big highlight was the natural monument "Druze oak".
    This oak is about 2 km northwest of Langen-Bergheim, in the middle of the Limeswall, in the forest.
    It is named after Nero Claudius Drusus, a Roman politician and military leader. Drusus lived from 38 to 8 BC and was the younger brother of the later emperor Tiberius. Drusus also came through the area of today's Wetterau during his campaigns 10 and 9 BC.
    The oak had already borne the name when the Limes section was researched by the Reich Limes Commission in 1900/02.
    The very impressive trunk, the approximately 300-year-old and 22-meter-high pedunculate oak, is open far up from the ground. The trunk circumference at chest height is 5.85 meters
    The entire length of the trunk is adorned by a huge opening that is caused by a lightning strike.
    This opening was closed with a wire mesh.
    The trunk has a very wide trunk base that is free of knots up to a height of 10 meters.
    The 16 meter wide crown is formed by only a few branches, which are now secured by ropes for safety reasons.
    Despite the large trunk opening, the tree's vitality is still good, we hope that it will have many more years to go.
    ***********
    From here we went back to our starting point.
    On the way there was only a rather sweaty an forest pond bubbling away in some places due to foul gases. There were also two brick houses on this site, one of which we had explored a little closer.
    ***********
    But what I would like to emphasize is that we met a lot of deer today, of which 2 very young animals were extremely trusting. It was really fascinating how close you could get to these two animals.
    A really great and unique experience. For this moment alone, this tour had already paid off.
