Guten Tag Kaptain Kenny readers,
This time we’re quite excited to present this new location to you. Not only because it’s pretty un-typical of the Germany you might imagine but also because it was a beautiful day filled with insane scenes.
The Felsenmeer Forest lies in Germany’s Odenwald region and is quite literally, as its name would suggest, a ‘sea of rocks’. I don’t think I could have expected that Germany would have scenery like this – what a pleasant surprise!
This forest is extremely easy to access by car, just type this into your navigator and the rest is history!
Seifenwiesenweg 59, 64686 Lautertal
The car park was completely empty when we went in mid-June and only cost a few EUR for a couple of hours. My tips are as follows:
- Bring plenty of food and liquids as the trip to the top can take you anywhere from 1-4 hours. Depending on where you want to stop, how often, which routes you take etc. We packed a picnic lunch and took a litre of sparkling water each. That was such a good idea! After a relatively long hike up, we decided to stop and eat.
- There are 8 stopping points from 1-8. We eventually stopped at point 4 and decided to not go up any further as it was already getting darker. I think if we’d gone from point 4 to point 8, we could have expected another 2 hours.
- On your way up from the information centre, you will follow paths 1, 2 or 3. I think path 1 is the longest and most convoluted and 2/3 were shorter and straight up.
- Bring a nice camera as the view from the top is very rewarding! It’s a very big and green forest which doesn’t see too much sunlight so it’s a tiny bit chilly. The result is that there’s gorgeous, green moss covered on everything. Divine.
So as usual, we’d prefer to let the pictures tell the story. If you have any feedback, be sure to leave us a message 🙂
