The entire place emanates mythos and stories, no wonder the Brothers Grimm got inspired by the eerie, dense forests and the marshlands, writing such fairytales as Hansel and Gretel and Sleeping Beauty. There is something about this area that simply switches our imaginations on and whispers about lights in the bogs you shouldn’t follow, castles older than time itself and forests so dense that they tell their own stories.
