Meadow Hiking Tour
Alp meadows and gentian – who does not think of the Alps first? But there is also something similar in the ARBERLAND Bavarian Forest."Meadows – Islands in the sea of the forest"
FORMER HIGH MEADOWS WITH CHARACTERISTIC VEGETATION
In former times during the summer months mainly young cattle was brought to the high altitudes of the Bavarian Forest for grazing.
The special attraction – the meadows break up the dark green of the Bavarian Bohemian forest sea as island like clearings. These free areas where used by the shepherds as places to rest or to stay overnight. The meadows in the Arber area are partly still used as pastures today.
Single trees were preserved at the meadows, offer shady places for the cattle. These individually standing trees could occur unobstructed and are often very old and branded by wind and weather.
The hiking tour over the meadows – an absolute must for hikers who are pleased with dreamlike views and come across botanic rarities like different types of gentian, lilies or spooky tree ruins.
