Tour Limes

In the footsteps of the ancient Romans

Duration, including briefing: approx. 2 hours (depending on the speed) – driving distance: approx. 22 kilometres

After a detailed theoretical and practical briefing, we start at  Pfofeld village square and head off in the direction of Theilenhofen.

On the way, we pass the enigmatic ruins of the Chapel of the Holy Cross, which was probably built in the 14th century and which served as a medieval pilgrimage church due to legends about a healing well and a miracle cross. After a short stop, the route continues in the direction of Theilenhofen, to the excavated Roman baths and the Roman fort “Iciniacum”.

The first Romans settled here in as early as 70 AD, during the occupation of the regions north of the Danube around Gunzenhausen and Theilenhofen. The latest research findings, using geomagnetic prospection, have revealed the floor plan of a Gallo-Roman theatre. From the Roman baths, we head for some of the information boards set up by the municipality in 2008 in order to then examine the course of the limes from a viewing platform. The limes watchtowers mostly had direct eye contact with the fort. Our route leads us to the remains of a Roman limes watchtower, from which you get a spectacular view of the landscape. From the watchtower, we then head along the limes towards Lake Brombach, which we can look down on from a vantage point. From there, we return to our starting point.

A communal stop at the Franconian Kleemann Tavern rounds off our Limes Tour.

We will, of course, make  stops for photos during the tour. If you like, we will be happy to send you the pictures that are taken by email or CD.

Please note! Due to unforeseeable circumstances, the tour route and its duration may vary.

Plant pencils

Floating Village – plant pencils on the lake

THE IDEA
How about not throwing away pencil stubs, but planting them and having the pleasure of seeing something delicious and beautiful, for example, grow out of them? We are excited to present one of the first growing pencils!

THE MATERIAL

Non-toxic – does not contain any lead. Rather, the writing material consists of graphite and clay. The plant pencil was recognised in 2013 as the most environmentally friendly product in the world by IGC, an international company for the distribution of giveaways and promotional items. High standards – high-quality pencil body made from sustainable cedar wood. Sprout pencils are handmade in Minnesota, USA.

HOW IT WORKS

It is not easy to germinate seeds and grow a large, beautiful plant. It takes active nurturing and care in order for fresh herbs to grow from the pencil.
Sprout pencils contain organic seeds. Did you know that Sprout pencils do not contain any lead? Planting or eating the herbs that grow out of the pencil is therefore completely risk-free.

GROWTH

Water your Sprout regularly and make sure it gets plenty of sunlight. The pencil needs direct sunlight to germinate and grow. Allow 2–3 weeks for the pencil to germinate and 4–5 weeks until you can use your fresh herbs for cooking.

We very much hope you like our range, which varies from time to time.
