Hunting fever is on the rise. It affects more and more people. A small knife is enough for them as a weapon. So they simply cut the prey at the fub and put it in a basket. This currently fills unusually easily and quickly. The steigerwald and the surrounding area are a dorado for mushroom pickers these days.

The riedel/genske family from castell has been one of the latter for years. As soon as "mushroom weather the trio is drawn out into the forest, meadows and fields. Eight-year-old marius was out and about with his parents this weekend. Mama claudia's and papa bertram's eyes still light up when they think of the edible treasures they brought home. "It was just amazing", bertram riedel's mushroom hunting record: "we've had some nice finds in the past. But there was nothing like that!"

Karin ritter celebrated her 65th birthday. Birthday. On her honorary day, the popular mayor of reichenbach was delighted to receive many congratulators, beautiful musical performances as well as lots of warm words and original gifts.

Eav makes a big splash in eyrichshof

Political satire is so entertaining. 2500 visitors filled the sold-out courtyard of the rotenhan renaissance building. All the spectators went home enthusiastic after more than two and a half hours. Whether they were thinking about the messages they had just been presented with – as a joke and wrapped up in austrian schmah?
