Japanese Walnut tree on the other side of a long bridge

Japanese Nut tree | Ginkgo biloba

In line with the bridge are two groups of Japanese walnut trees: Ginkgo. These trees already existed in prehistoric times and even survived the dinosaurs!

The name of this tree is very misleading. He is not from Japan, but from China! And he also does not produce nuts, but seeds. In Japan, the tree is worshiped as a god. The Japanese walnut tree symbolizes immutability, hope, love, magic, timelessness and longevity. Many artists are inspired by the Japanese walnut tree. It was Goethe's favorite tree. He has grown and planted several hundred of them himself. He also wrote a sonnet about it in 1815: Gingo biloba.
