  The monster acorns
by MichaelFalk1969

The "oak with monster children" (meaning: giant acorns) is another work of art by the late artist F. K. Waechter, after one of his drawings. It is on display along the "Grüngürtel"-hiking path. Just a nice sight, an oak tree with acorns the size of bowling balls.

How to get there: Drive direction Höchst/Schwanheim, then Schwanheim - Rheinlandstrasse. Drive along the Rheinlandstrasse past the small train station and then turn left. Park the car here. Go ca. 100 metres along the wood path parallel to the street past a childrens playground until you see an open meadow. Turn right on the hiking/cycling path and walk ca. 10 minutes until you see the tree with eyes on the righthand side (t-junction). Turn left and at the next sign left again. Walk ca. 100 metres and at the next turn right - there you can see the oak with the giant acorns. You may sit on them !
