    Understand forestAisles on forest slopes, fords through rivers: Hike through the cultural landscape in the Franconian Forest Nature Park and read the traces of its history! How did people live from and with the forest? Understanding grows step by step: people change their environment and the environment changes people.“Hello everyone, I'm the forester here. So if you see a poacher on your way to the Forstmeister jump, then tell me, I'll help him! Because I have to answer to the Bamberg gentlemen if the number of animals is not right. That's why I prefer to watch the woodcutters at work: Who knows what they can get out of my forest besides tree trunks!But now you're going to go your own way, that's what you're here for. And because it's my forest - don't get it wrong, that's what I mean, because it doesn't really belong with yes, I just take care of it - so, because it's my forest, I keep telling you on the way Again something about the special features: to the ancient Grünbürg for example, or to the Nordeck castle ruins ...Oh, before I forget ‘: Maybe you want to know why the forester's jump is called that? Yes, a predecessor of mine is supposed to have jumped from the rock with a horse. He didn't survive. But people say it is on purpose. Bad conscience or something. Well, the people tell a lot. Just think of the poor soul when you enjoy the impressive view there ... I wish you a good time in my forest. "
