The Forest Myths Trail in Waldbröl

Searching for the secrets of elves, unicorns and Robin Hood

"Wood is a single syllable word behind which there is a world of fairytales and wonder" (Theodor Heuss). This stretch examines the fascinating myths of the forest. The eleven information boards along the way allow you to discover mysterious meadows where the people have assumed for millennia that they live in the forest: goblins, dwarves, fairies, elves, giants and even the big bad wolf.

At eight audio stations along the way, you can also listen to a few mythical creatures.
