Biosphere reserves are important living spaces for a diverse range of flora and fauna. Ranger Hubert Heger is one of nine rangers working at the Rhön Biosphere Reserve . Hubert Heger gives us a tour of his native region. His first recommendation is the Sea of Basalt at Schafstein Mountain where he played as a young boy. Originally a volcano, the stone from the mountain has been dated 20 million years old. He also recommends a side-trip to the Adventure Store in the village of Tann. Every visitor to the region should also see the castle ruins of Ebersburg which are over 900 years old.
