    The Gernsdorfer Höhentour is a forest and meadow hike as it is written in the book. You are offered a varied landscape as well as great paths through forests and idyllic meadow landscapes. You will explore the nature reserve "Gernsdorfer Weidekämpe", which is a specialty due to the diversity of the cultivated landscape with different types of grassland. The term Weidekämpe describes a large cattle pasture on cleared Haubergsurfaces that was introduced in the 19th century.Due to different soil conditions and types of use, different types of biotopes and plant communities developed in the open country, many of which are of great importance for nature conservation. These include grass lawns, colorful flowery mountain oat meadows, wet pastures and Kleinseggen marshes. Hedges, individual trees, swamp areas and springs provide a habitat for many rare animal and plant species - and of course they are beautiful to look at.Particularly exciting and colorful: tens of thousands of orchids grow and thrive here. Rare meadow birds in the area are whinchat and meadow pipit, which can successfully nest here as ground-nesting birds. Incidentally, this hike can be turned into a very long or two stages, because the Gernsdorfer high altitude tour meets the Dill mountain tour, which also follows the Rothaarsteig trail.
