Multi-stemmed, gnarled Hornbeam trees, resulting from the earlier use as a coppice forest, catch the eye. In addition to the shady-cool Beech and scree slope forests, there are also naturally forest-free, rocky and sunlit places, such as the "Rittersprung" area. As you look out over the landscape you will often hear the harsh cry of the Raven.
The rough pasture and nutrient-poor meadowland interspersed with bushes has gained great significance for many species due to its structural diversity and is an aesthetic highlight of the landscape. Again, there are numerous rare species of plant here, such as the Good King Henry and the Spring Fumewort. The Red-backed Shrike is a regular breeding species in the thorn bushes.
