Dear families, dear children,
Welcome to my home, the beautiful Bergisches Land. My name is Berta von Berg, the Bergische Cow, and I am delighted to present my home to you. There is certainly lots to see and do in the Bergisches Land.
But let’s learn a thing or two about my home region first. The Bergisches Land, which literally means “Mountain Region”, does not have very high mountains as the name would suggest – it is just quite hilly. It is a very varied region, however, with lots of forests, meadows, lakes and villages. During summer, you will see my black and white Holstein relatives in the many green meadows, enjoying the idyllic peace and quiet and grazing away.
If you've had enough of solid ground, you can also visit one of the many bathing lakes and swim, sail, row or hire a pedal boat, run around or simply relax on the shores. If the water in the lakes is a little too cold for you, you can simply stop off at one of the many swimming pools.
