I love to go to this place. It's so silent here, the air is always fresh, and visiting the forest is even suitable in a hot day, since the temperature is way lower than in the city. There are some remarkable spots, too, but if you only go to take a walk here, you already must have had a good time. Food and drink and significantly more expensive than at other places.
This is an amazing park with lots and lots of different hike trails! The scenery is beautiful, the provided maps are easy to read and fun to plan your route, the trails have different difficulties which could make your experience alot more intense or amazing! It's definitely recommended to go two days, so you can take every trail with ease.
