Knüllwald - Fairytale and legendary Knüllwald

Knüllwald in Little Red Riding Hood country with its 16 districts lies on the rivers Efze and Beise in the densely wooded Knüllgebirge and invites you to go hiking in a fairy tale. The fable trails "Hutewaldweg", "Around Rommelsberg", "Schlossbrunnenweg" and "Lochbachpfad" show a unique nature with fabulous views and interesting cultural treasures. Diverse tours in a fascinating landscape lure motorcyclists to winding excursions into the Knüll low mountain range.

Knüllwald for friends of fairy tales
The depths of the forests, the quiet valleys and idyllically situated towns and villages in the rural area of Knüll are perfect backdrops as fairytale showplaces of the Brothers Grimm, which one can discover while hiking in the north Hessian hill country. Perhaps the bad wolf is waiting for Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother in the mountain hut, or in the Hutewald forest the old goat is searching for food for her seven little kids, and on the Wallenstein castle, Rapunzel has let down her hair from the fortress tower.
In the Wildpark Knüll wildlife park, one can meet not only the much vilified "bad" wolf of the famous fairy tale, but also howl along with the "good" wolves in the Wolf Night, or listen to the fairy another time.

Knüllwalder Historical Tidbits

Apart from legendary churches in Rengshausen and Remsfeld (Wichtelkirche) with uncovered paintings from the early 16th century, in other districts fortified churches defy intrustion. The Wallenstein fortress ruin in the Efze valley has an eventful history. It was destroyed in the 30 Years War, and perhaps a reference to the hero of Schiller's drama "Wallenstein".
In the Beise valley, the idyllic course of the river is bordered by centuries-old mills.
