New Rothenberg Erlebnispfad

Nds. Landesforsten Forstamt Münden -

The NLFM approached us to produce a fresh modern concept to to replace an old and rundown Erlebnispfad.

Concept, Text content, Graphics, Industrial Design, Construction

A Demanding Brief?

We were also to design and deliver all interactive elements as well as an original stand and fixing system

As well as the subject contents

All the Graphics

Original technical and Mechanical specifications


The Concept

We decided to divide the path into 3 themes , each would have an assigned colour which also be used as the path logo and corp.Id.

The Brief


was open for us to investigate and develop an informative and stimulating outdoor experience for all groups- -casual walkers, families, school groups, nature lovers curious about the flora and fauna particular to this area. We would use display boards 150 x 123 cm.


- Naturwissen

- Naturerlebnis

- Wald-und Industriegeschichte


The Look

A grid layout was developed which enable three levels

of possible involvement  for the viewer - a column on the left with denser factual information and two right hand spaces designed to display information through images

and photos with minimum text

The Fourth Level

Not just looking but touching and investigating.  We designed a modular klapp/lift system which was simple to mount and made from hard wearing edelstahl. It enabled us to go into more detail about a particular subject, using both photos and text.

Also, who doesnt like to find out what's 'behind the door'?

The Plan(ing)

Sitting in the office wasn't an option!! The (4km?) had to be surveyed, photographed, mapped and observed?, many times, - by foot of course. Drawings and plans had to made before we could make any presentations.
