These pyramids are in a well kept location beside the water. They are a lovely sight to see and very impressive. They could have been advertised better as we easily could have missed them.

Fairy houses are lovely. Nice for the younger kids (under 8) to explore and find the fairy houses. They get moved and updated each year so always something new to see.

Nice and easy walk. Well signposted. Brilliant for kids as it is almost an adventure trail. Possible in all kinds of Werther.
