The beech wood 'Lusshardt' is situated in the region north of Karlsruhe between Hambrücken and Ubstadt-Weiher on both sides of the motorway A5. specially near a brook, the 'Dutlacher Graben' it is rich of wild flowers in spring, some of these are shown below. The number of Yellow Anemone is remarkable, I have never seen so many at another site.
