Spring crocuses transform meadows and forests into a violet-white sea of flowers
After long winter days, the joy of the first spring messengers is great. Experience flower paradises with wild crocuses, daffodils or orchids as well as fruit trees in bloom. Here you will find the complete address list for flower walks throughout Germany.
In the March / April issue of Mein schöne Land we introduced you to many beautiful flower walks. Unfortunately we could not completely publish the contact addresses for reasons of space in the magazine. Here you will find an extensive address list with telephone numbers and, if available, homepage links to guided flower walks.
The almond trees (Prunus dulcis) on the southern wine route with their mild wine-growing climate open their delicate pink flowers from mid-March. Avenues with trees of different sizes flank many hiking trails and cycle paths between Bad Dürkheim and Schweigen-RechtenbachAlmond Blossom:

On Lake Constance and the Upper Rhine, the Sibirian Iris (Iris sibricia) offers an impressive spectacle
The Siberian iris:
On Lake Constance and the Upper Rhine, it forms beautiful stands on moist grass meadows or boggy forest meadows. At the heyday in May / early June, the blue iris blossoms in the Wollmatinger Ried near Konstanz and in the Eriskircher Ried near Friedrichshafen. The up to 100 cm high stems, which are flanked by grass-like leaves, carry one to three blue-violet flowers. Each of the 5 cm long petals has a white background. Dark blue veins go through the exotic-looking inflorescences right to the top. Not only in Baden-Württemberg, the plants are seriously endangered, because drainage of meadows and bogs, and road construction and settlement construction lead to the disappearance of the original native iris, whose distribution extends to Western Siberia.

The Scheiden-Wollgras contributes in peat bogs to the peat formation. From March to May, the long flowering leaves of the fruit weigh in the wind and enchant as white woolen creatures large areas in the bogs of northern Germany (for example Teufelsmoor near Bremen or Esterweger Dose in the districts of Emsland, Cloppenburg and Leer) as well as in low mountain ranges and in the foothills of the Alps. The perennial, herbaceous plant grows up to 60 cm tall and grows in loose to dense clumps. Although the sour grass is not protected by law, it is still considered endangered in some federal states.

The male orchid (Orchis mascula) belongs to the wild orchids and blooms from late April to late Juneorchid
The orchid belongs to the wild orchid and grows in poor meadows on relatively dry alkaline soils as well as in dry grasslands and semi-dry grasslands. The main distribution area extends from the Mediterranean to the southern and eastern edge of the Alps. In Germany, it is mainly in the nature reserve Leutratal in Thuringia, through which there are expert guides, as well as in northeastern Hesse and southern Lower Saxony to find.

Blooming orchards and orchards (here cherry trees) provide an impressive picture
Orchards and orchards:
When the buds of the fruit trees open all over the country and a large cloud of white or light pink flowers cover the landscape, this is a spectacular experience both in the Old Country near Hamburg and in Bavaria. Depending on the region and weather, the snow-white blooms of the stone fruit species such as cherry, plum or mirabelle already open at the end of March, beginning of April for about 14 days. Apple and pear bloom only from the middle of April, in the north often only at the beginning of May.
