The Botanical Forest Trail
Le Bois de Châtel has been enriched with a botanical forest path that helps hikers get to know many different tree species. Who would have thought that our forest offers such a huge variety?
Indeed, there are around 60 trees, all of different species, which have plaques listing their individual names in French, Latin and German. Thus, this lovely walk leads you from discovery to discovery, all the while benefiting from the wonderful forest atmosphere. Each tree is listed and has its own name tag, including a QR code that is readable by Android and IOS mobile phones. By reading the QR code, the hiker is referred to the Wikipedia website that provides a wealth of information about each tree’s species, the family to which it belongs, its type of leaves or needles, fruit, etc.
