Ermitage of Arlesheim
A completely fantastic place we can find in Arlesheim near Basel: The Ermitage. The Ermitage does not only belong, together with the hollow rock and the "Hollenberg"- caves to the oldest, well-known settlement places of the canton, it points with 75`000 Bovis units also an extremely high earth radiation.
You can see it on the nummerous mistletoes and the crippled growth of the trees.
The Ermitage is situated in the famous english garden, which Heinrich von Ligerz, Franz Carl von Andlau and Balbina von Staal, gave 1785 in order. It is so created, that nature if possible remains oneself. You will find a romantic idyl, with ponds, bizarre caves, foaming cascades, splendourful old trees and the ruins of a house of an hermit.
Near this wonderful place of silence you will find the Birseck- and the Reichenstein castles.
Leave yourselves to the charms of this place of strength, who tightened in far times poets and philosophers from hole Europe...

" O luck-blessed isolation -
O only luch blessedness"
