Naturpark Gantrisch - In 1999 the storm Lothar destroyed much of the forest between Schwarzenbühl and Ottenleue. High above the forest floor on a wooden board walk, one can see how the forest is recovering.

The buckled storm-damaged timber and the forest scars that are slowly undergoing revegetation can all be viewed from a raised wooden walkway: enjoyment for all nature lovers! Here, visitors will gain unique insights into burgeoning nature and the natural development of an area subjected to storm damage.
