Pure nature on a hike through a vast landscape of meadows and woods.

In Heppenbach, the hay harvest is beginning. The perfume of freshly mown grass is in the air. This also seems to inspire a fox who, not far off the trail, waits to ambush field mice intoxicated by the midsummer air. Nature reveals itself, simply and overwhelmingly, right in front of our eyes. Sparrows whirr in the cloudless summer sky.

A beautiful trail takes us to the Möderscheid mill, where a little stream babbles contentedly through the meadows. In the narrow part of the valley at Möderscheid the farms nestle up against the slopes, embedded in the landscape. Long fences describe a landscape which puts us in mind of parts of Scotland. Once we've arrived in Hepscheid, the view we get confirms once again how good life probably is on the banks of the Amel. Further down, the natural course of the little river draws a graceful pattern through the meadows.
