Witch’s Cottage by JohannesOehl

Hansel and Gretel (Grimm Brothers) could have met the witch here….But it is called Derstenhaus and is a refuge for hikers in the Palatinate Forest, which is a low mountain region in the south-west of Germany. Together with the northern part of the adjacent Vosges Mountains in France it forms the UNESCO-designated Palatinate Forest-North Vosges Biosphere Reserve, one of the biggest forests in Europe. I have been grown up in this forest….it’s my “Heimat” (German word for homeland)
