May 30, 2021
Drought damage and bark beetles: The Thuringian Forest is suffering. This is especially true for the Kyffhäuser area, because the small town of Artern is considered the driest place in Germany in 2020. Nowhere in Germany does it rain less than here. The fire brigade has problems with the extinguishing water, the anglers with dry water, and unfortunately the quality of the drinking water. The Bärental is a little south of Artern and still looks quite lush and green in the photos.But if you walk over the suspension bridge into the forest, you will see the clear traces of the drought. Some trees are bare, some have already fallen over, others just look really dry and sick. On a hike to the spectacular suspension bridge, you will also see why the nature in this area is so worth protecting. It is beautiful and provides a habitat for many animal and plant species.You start at the bus stop in Reinsdorf and first walk to a rest area. Here you can pause for a moment at the deer, take a sip and prepare for the great hike. We continue into the middle of the valley, from which only this one path leads in and out again. Soon you will reach the suspension bridge, on which you will hike over a gorge. Then you go back over the Enzian Wiesenweg, which will delight you with its variety of flowers.
