Wiesenfelden is located on a plateau in the Bavarian Forest Nature Park, about 13 kilometers northeast of Wörth on the Danube. More than half of the municipal area is forested and covers an area of 78 square kilometers at altitudes between 430 m and 749 m. The castle of Wiesenfelden is owned by Hubert Weinzierl, one of the most influential German environmentalists. The castle houses an environmental information center and a museum. Nearby is the Schiederhof, a family-run inn that is surrounded by woods. I like this area because of the nearby natural preserves.

In late autumn, the Danube valley is often filled with fog and the sun does not show. On such days, it pays to climb the Danube Hills, because few hundred meters are sufficient to be above fog. I am interested to make images at the transition zone, because of the special light there.

Schachten are ancient areas of pasture in the Bavarian Forest in Germany, some of which are still used today.
Similar to the alms or alpine pastures of the Alps, Schachten are treeless forest meadows. These open areas, often covering several hectares, were used by the herdsmen as places to stay for the night and for halts on a journey. Individual trees were left in place on these meadows to provide shady resting places for the animals. These isolated trees grew, unsheltered and are often gnarled by wind and weather.
These forest clearings are especially interesting because they are the only open areas in these huge forests and often have good views.

The Osser (Czech: Ostrý) is a mountain on the border between Germany and Czechia, in the Bavarian Forest and Bohemian Forest and which belongs to the Kunisch Mountains. From the summit cross there is an extensive view into Czechia over the Bohemian Forest, as well as to the nearly summit of the Arber and, in good visibility, even as far as the Alps. This image was made near the border north of the Osser summit.
