"walking the GEO-pad"
from the tourist-information we started a walk about 11 kilometers. The GEO-route 1. The beginning was hard to find, but we had a map of the route. We had to follow the G that was written on rocks or trees. We passed a sintercave, but we couldn't see because we had no flashlight. We passed a findingplace for fossils an found a lot crinoïden, very old stalks of sealily. We past Kasselburg. A very beautiful walk, for the kids too!
In Kasselburg you can look at the feedeing of wolves and birds of prey.
