In the very southwest of Germany in the Black Forest is this small enchanted and untouched forest region: "Höllschlucht". There is a little stream and everything looks so wild. Like in a mini jungle. I visited this place a total of three times and each time I was thrilled. Unfortunately I was there in the late afternoon, so there was not much time for taking pictures. My first impressions in pictures. For me, it looks like a surreal world.

My second time there

It was February, cold and on the way back it started snowing. But everything looked so rough and yet organic. What a lovely contrast.

Wonderful May

The whole "Höllschlucht" was suddenly wrapped in a strong green. It looked even more like a mini jungle than usual. The water running through the stones, it rushed slightly and everything seemed so peaceful.

Spring of the "Höllbach"

After I was so enthusiastic about the "Höllschlucht", I really wanted to know where the "Höllbach" has its spring. No sooner said than done: I researched on mapy.cz and then planned a hiking route. I walked so far, until only a small spring could be found:
