The golden autumn at Hazelnut House is magical. Dew lies on the dry grasses. The cobwebs in the seeds of the meadow flowers glitter in the morning sun. It smells of late summer and thanksgiving! The leaves of the surrounding forest turn gold, yellow and brown. As if nature had put together the most beautiful colours in a watercolour box. And these cloud formations, the bright sunlight! Like a golden yellow stripe it emerges from the morning mist on the horizon. Rustle your feet through the dry foliage in the beech forest. Listen to the call of the wild geese and find large nuts from the old walnut tree on the ground. Those who are here in autumn should definitely hike along the Müllertal Trail from Echternach to Berdorf for another day.


The pears and apples on the trees are now ripe in the orchard. On this Saturday morning we put on warm rubber boots, cuddle up in woollen sweaters and wax jackets and head off into the old fruit yard. We take the first apple from the branch and eat it just like that. What a taste! From the vegetable bed we bring beetroot and pumpkins. Coming home with our autumn harvest is so wonderful during this time. In the large sandstone fireplace of the open gallery the fire is already crackling.  We put the kettle on for tea and start cooking our festive autumn lunch. The menu at this time of the year is heartwarming! After lunch, Theresa will be reading from her new book  we enjoy tea and warm cake with salty caramel sauce...
