Nature experience path Kristakopf Latschau

The nature experience path “Kristakopf” is a way to show and explain interesting facts about complex relationships, natural cycles and the development of plants and animals. Nature should be understood as a common habitat of plants, animals and humans. In order to do this, we must rethink and classify our role as humans in this structure. For this reason, this nature discovery trail also explains the various usage requirements and their historical development.
