Sequoia trees Welzheim

Sequoia trees Welzheim


Imposing natural phenomenon

As early as 1870, the seeds of the California redwood, acquired by King Wilhelm I of Württemberg, were sown in Württemberg forests. Well-preserved specimens of the imposing trees, also called Wellingonias, can be found in the Welzheim forest near the city park. Even from the parking lot, you can marvel at the trees, which are about 50 meters high. If you still feel like some exercise afterwards, you can walk along the hiking trail “Feenspuren – Römerweg”, which first leads to the Ropbachsee and then through the Roman forest. Also worth seeing is the Hagmühle on the Mühlenbach, built in 1438, which invites you to stop in with its cozy beer garden. The ruins of the Göckelerturm are also worth a stop.
