Age-old botanical knowledge
Herbs and the awareness of their effects were important elements of nutrition and early medicine as far back as the middle ages. The whole bouquet of local herbs were used to season and preserve food, as well as for medicinal-therapeutic purposes. This gentle hike along the high ridge of the Tauber Valley teaches participants about the powers of wild herbs and how they have always been used to enrich local cuisine.
