The "fruit trail" in Leichlingen

Through the ages with the apple

This stretch accompanies young and old hikers on a discovery tour through the history/histories of apple farming and shows how multi-faceted the use of this fruit by humans was and is. It’s not just primary school children who can read and learn a lot from the information boards; adults will also learn some interesting facts on this topic.

Along the trail, a further two audio stations play fairytales and poems to do with apples and pears.
