Just walked through the Drachenschlucht, on a dry day at the end of September, and very much enjoyed it. Amazing rock structures, and huge variety of greenery.

This was a nice easy hike in the woods. It was nice to get back to nature after our stay in Berlin. The canyon was very cool and so green. I was able to cool off from the hot weather and get some great pictures.
