Moss Garden and Mushroom Paths
Wander downhill along the gently curved mushroom paths towards the moss garden. On the upper end of the mushroom paths you'll find a wooden bench in the so called "White Garden" with snowdrops, Christmas roses, hyacinths and bluebells.
On the forest floor, the lowest vegetation level, mosses provide hiding place and food for many insects, reptiles and small animals. When it rains, large quantities of water can be stored and slowly released again. In this way, mosses reduce soil erosion and provide their surroundings with moisture. Mosses can absorb pollutants from precipitation and from the air and thus indicate acidification of the soil, the sulfur content in the air or metal pollution. If you want to eat mosses, you should definitely consider this. Mosses in protected locations are used in medicine and naturopathy. Since many of them are threatened with extinction, they are protected.
