Through the Palatinate Forest

The last few colorful fall days.. a walk down the Pfälzerwald (Palatinate Forest) on a Sunday afternoon.

Starting from behind the University, through the Waldspielplatz Bremerhof, reaching the Humbergturm tower!

Waldspielplatz Bremerhof.. one of the oldest and most beautiful place in the Palatinate. Plenty of parking, a nice little restaurant with a wonderful beer garden and a big playground for children.

The Palatinate Forest Nature Reserve of Germany was created way back in 1958. And since then, the with changing season, comes the beauty of the forest.

Way markers, information boards, rest benches, tables are examples of guided hikes around the tower.

From Bremerhof, starts the incline to Humbergturm. Route signs on the trees to make it easier to find the way through the forest.

Palatinate Forest is indeed a diverse mountain landscape with a dense, deeply incised valley system.

The big field by the tower is a beautiful place to spend time with friends and family.

The Humberg Tower-  The silent emblem of the city, an observation tower on the Humberg hill, 1400 feet high to the south of the city of Kaiserslautern.

Climbing this sandstone tower by having made the 162 steps to the observation deck, one is able to have the panaromic view of Kaiserslautern and the forest, with the Sun and Cloud playing along in the background.
