The Algunder Apfellehrpfad Route (Apple Trail)
The educational nature trail dedicated to “Algunder Apfellehrpfad” apples is really worth discovering in April and May because it is in these months that the apple blossom blooms. During these spring months young farmers act as guides for apple lovers by showing off their apple orchards. While doing so they provide information on the flowering period, cultivation of apple varieties, the right precautions to take and harvest time. At the end it is possible to visit a farming cooperative. Visits are held until June.
