Description

From the green fever to the youngest Spessart settlementIn winter the "green fever" breaks out in Kempfenbrunn, then the Christmas trees are inspected in the cultures and particularly beautiful specimens are selected.

Mosborn was founded 400 years later than Kempfenbrunn.

Mosborn is a planned settlement for colonists from the Spessart - in the Spessart.route descriptionAt the church in Kempfenbrunn, worth seeing, the 12 km long cultural hiking trail begins.

The well signposted path leads past the Christmas tree cultures.

After the Second World War, the idea arose to market the abundant spessart flowers as Christmas trees.

This was the hour of birth of the "Green Fever" that has been infecting the majority of Kempfenbrunners ever since, and on the further way one gets to know the "Binding Rope Islands".

Walter Bindseil (1895-1969) headed the forestry office in Bieber.

He developed a special form of the forest bee pasture, by isolated planting of certain bee-friendly forest woods, namely the "Bindseil-Inseln".

Down through the Laubersbachtal, where six locations of glassworks are known, one reaches Mosborn with a gentle ascent.

It is the youngest, moderately planned settlement in the Spessart.

Through the forest we return to Kempfenbrunn.
