In line with the Fröbel philosophy, the ten stations of the Fröbel Forest will, once finished, depict the history of the Schwarzatal in both a playful and educational manner.

Keeping in mind children’s abilities and instinct for play, the information has been designed to intensely stimulate all senses. A foundation stone of the concept is the accompaniment by adults (parents, teachers etc) who are familiar with and can support Fröbel’s main principles, such as allowing children to attempt activities for themselves, and to explore and understand the world in their own time and manner.
