Study trip to the Rhön:

In 1991, the UNESCO recognized the Rhön as “biosphere reserve”. The acknowledgement entailed the requirement to protect the landscape in line with the UNESCO strategy. Biosphere reserves are part of the UNESCO program “Man and the Biosphere” which understands natural and human habitats as one whole and advocates abolishing the separation of man and environment. The Rhön represents a prime example of the world-wide preservation of habitats within the UNESCO strategy. The cultural landscape of the Rhön, which is the result from the usage of land by small farmers, offers ideal conditions for a protection program which takes into account the interaction between man and nature. The Rhön is also one of the largest biosphere reserves and Europe-wide a habitat for endangered and rare species.
This trip will acquaint us with the Rhön, the harmony of its landscape and programs such as organic farming or sustainable tourism. We will also enjoy some of the delicious products of the Rhön.
