Walking silently through the forest is like visiting the theatre. You are surprised by dancing trees, small and large animals, a budding flower. During a silence walk, we walk slowly. Occasionally we even stand still. All attention goes to our breathing and the five senses. Each silent walk is a fantastic spectacle, endless in its variations.

The silent walks are guided by A Mertens. She is a nature guide, writer and media artist.
