Long Description:
Eine der Stationen des Kinder-Waldlehrpfads Weg der Artenvielfalt an der Bonner Waldau ist die an den sogenannte Kopfbuchen, auch Gespensterbuchen genannt. Das sind alte, speziell beschnittene Buchen, die aufgrund ihrer Äste ein bizarres und gruseliges Aussehen haben.

Um die Natur zu schonen und den Besuchern einen attraktiven Weg auch bei matschigem Waldboden zu bieten, hat man sich dazu entschlossen, hier einen Holzsteg zu bauen, der vom Hauptweg in den Wald hinein zu den Kopfbuchen führt. Am Ende des Wegs befinden sich mehrere Bänke, eine Informationstafel und ein Fernrohr, mit dem die Kinder und andere Besucher die Buchen ganz genau untersuchen können.
One of the stations of the children's forestry trail "Weg der Artenvielfalt" (Trail of Biodiversity) at the Waldau of Bonn is at the so-called "Kopfbuchen" (i.e. head beech trees), also called ghost beaches. These are old, specially trimmed beeches, which have a bizarre and creepy appearance due to their branches.

In order to preserve nature and to offer the visitors an attractive path even with a muddy forest floor, one has decided to build a wooden boardwalk here, which leads from the main path into the forest to the beech trees. At the end of the way there are several benches, an information sign, and a telescope with which the children and other visitors can examine the trees very closely.
