… in the mean time I will do a short trip to Spessart:
Spessart is a Mittelgebirge, a range of low wooded mountains, in the States of Bavaria and Hesse in Germany. It is bordered by the Vogelsberg, Rhön and Odenwald. The highest elevation is the Geiersberg at 586 metres NN.
Spessart means “Woodpecker Forest”
The name is derived from “Spechtshardt”. Specht is the German word for woodpecker and Hardt is an outdated word meaning “hilly forest”.
Schloss Mespelbrunn, emblematic landmark of the Spessart
It is bordered by other ranges of hills: the Vogelsberg in the north, Rhön in the northeast and Odenwald in the southwest. Another way of describing the extent of the range is by naming the rivers that border it: the Main in the south and west, the Kinzig in the north and the Sinn in the northeast.
I´ll be back on June 20 and than I will continue with this blog.
Have a nice time !
