Wandering around Kaiserstuhl

A daytrip to Kaiserstuhl was both an opportunity to walk along one of the many paths that lace the region as well as enjoying the remarkable managed landscapes of vineyards, benefitted by the nutrient-rich soils of a unique geologic formation between the Schwarzwald and the Rhein.

This is a well-known German wine region; it’s also a favorite destination for walkers and cyclists. In the spring, rare orchids and other species adapted to the calcium-rich soils are in flower — another reason to visit!
