    Personal I recommend an evening walk through that marvellous forest. So peaceful and mystic because of old beeches and oaks. Mixed with other arts of trees and mids in high fern and flowers. The special is the mixture and how they growing, better where. In little groups and on meadows.
    Another special thing are the big benches with roofs, made for peole to watch in calm the animals, roes or red deers and more.
    And when you have that luck like we had, than you get really an impressive walk. After rain the fog was over meadows and between trees, over all the last sunbeams of evening sun. And on madows in front of us were been the animals. What a scenery!

    That´s the romantic castle named Sababurg, the castle of Sleeping Beauty. Some legends are around that fairy castle, and some say that these is the castle of fairy story by Grimm.
    Wonderful romance, high recommended. Also with a beautiful park (roses) and fantastic surrounding.
    We got a thunderstorm there, so the pictures shot partially in darkness with rain. ;-)
    Saba, her wooden monument is outside at feet of hill, shall be one of three legend mystery sisters.

    That monastery is an historical of Benedicts, the abbey was founded in 1093. Later it changed (1600) to evangelical abbey. From old monstery you can see the Romanic church. There is a West and an East church. In West part existing much wonderful Romanic mural paintings, in East part you can attend church.
    There exist also a Hall of Silence, where you can say the prayers really with silence.
    Monastery has a famous bell, which is the bell fof Cathedral Königsberg.
    Some old and new houses of monastery offer the possibility for only a stop or congress.
    The surrounding is very beautiful, directly at river Weser.

    For a moment I thought about where I should post: as tip or as warning. ;-)
    Decide yourself:
    There is a restaurant in Bad Karlshafen, Mündener Strasse. If you want dance in a disco you can go therein. But do not await for more than a simple dancing room and that most people only search for the next "overnight".
    But if you want have only fun with waching some curious people, then it is OK. *lol*

    Dress Code: simple, only Jeans

Reinhardswald Off The Beaten Path

    It is the first forest in Hesse which is a cemetery. Now exist all together thirteen of them in Germany.
    In one part of Reinhardswald people can buy trees, also in time of life, together with other people or alone. Thereunder the dead will inter for their last way. Are urn graves, of course. That Friedwald is 112 ha wide.
    The forest is a natural wood, and they guarantee that no one cuts the trees before he got 99 years.
    What a nice idea to know that you will find finally peace under a tree. And under what for a tree, a beech or an oak, every people can choose.
    Many people take that possibility.

    In "info" on website you can see a little good movie about that.

    Favorite thing: Not only the mystic forests, also the river is fascinating. And the little things belong or beside of the ways, anyway if you walk or drive. Let me show you some of them in that tip or in travelogue.

    Fondest memory: The trees, everywhere the trees in wood, but also that river and his plants and meadows. And if you like to photograph like me, you will find many "good shots".
