Hey, you! 🇩🇪
Omg, what a day we had! 😅😅 It didn't go at all as expected to say the least.
So, I woke up the other day and announced that we were going to Germany today. A "quick" hike in the Land of Druids, a visit of the Treetop Walk Saarschleife, and shopping at the Filipino store in Luxembourg. I thought we could do it all, but pfff - as if!
The main issue was me. The Husband and S would have done as planned hands-down, but I miscalculated the length of the hike. Also, I overestimated my ability of going on a hike AND I wasn't wearing the right shoes! Haha.
Anyways, in the morning we prepared our picnic food. Then, when everything was ready and packed, we drove to Druidenpfad or the Lands of Druids in Rehlingen-Siersburg, Germany. This is just by the border with France. In fact, half of the land in is France and the other half in Germany. We drove on the departmental roads to check out the view and it was pretty easy to find!
Druidenpfad or The Land of Druids is a land that is very mystical and mysterious. Based on the things I read, this area was also the home of Celtic tribes many years ago.
After walking for about 2 kilometers through the forest and meadows we arrived in an area with two reconstructed Celtic houses and a table and chairs. Apparently there was also a traditional Celtic burial place around this area but unfortunately this was destroyed and then later during the Second World War German soldiers holed up here in trenches against the approaching Americans.
It's quite interesting to see up close a Celtic house and what it's made of. Celts liked to use local materials so straws for the roof and whatever they could find in the forest for the rest. It is quite dark inside the houses as there are no windows. I couldn't help but wonder if these houses belong to the chief of the tribe and if not, then how did the chief's house look like.
Admittedly I'm quite embarrassed to admit that I know very little about the Celts so please don't hesitate to share any knowledge you might have. I would be very interested to read your messages.
