Impressive natural phenomena like a colourful flower meadow, a babbling spring, the effervescent Eder river, majestic trees, mystical forests and rocky landscapes with towering cliffs line the route as the anchor points of this challenging trail.
The Celts lived in harmony with nature and worshipped it. They used plants as medicines, saw springs and rocks as points of contact with the Other World and interpreted mighty trees as divine symbols.
