Anette planned a hike.
February 7, 2021
You leave Odershausen and first hike a few kilometers through field and meadow corridors before you dive back into the basement forest. On this section you will find the rare Süntel beeches, a variant of the common beech. They grow more in width than in height and form tent-like crowns with their drooping branches. The trunks are twisted and the branches are twisted or grown together. Definitely worth seeing.Soon you will meet the Urff valley. You accompany the brook past the small towns of Armsfeld and Fischbach and finally reach the former miners' village Berg Freiheit. In addition to the beautiful half-timbered church, you can also visit a former copper ore mine. And you will inevitably meet Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Because they live here. For fairy tale fans, the place is known as Snow White's village.The rest of the way to your final destination now leads mainly through the beautiful basement forest. Shortly before Bad Zwesten you will notice an elegant life-size figure made of larch wood on the side of the path. An art trail run by the ArsNatura Foundation has this nice surprise in store, which runs parallel to the Kellerwaldsteig in sections.Shortly afterwards you will reach the destination of your today's stage. Bad Zwesten is a cozy little spa town in the eastern foothills of the Kellerwald with charming half-timbered houses and a former castle. Here you can still stroll a little and end the hike in one of the beautiful spa facilities.
