Uni-Villa hike postponed indefinitely
The joint Uni-Villa-Hike of the Technical University of Kaiserslautern and the University in Landau announced for next Saturday (April 30) has to be postponed due to damage in the forest caused by the fresh snow event on April 8 this year. A new date for the Uni-Villa hike is currently being sought.
The onset of winter at the beginning of April this year has affected numerous trees in the Palatinate Forest by snow breakage. The inspection carried out by the responsible forestry office on tuesday came to the conclusion: on the route of the Uni-Villa hike there is currently still a danger to life from falling branches. In addition, many sections of the hiking route are still not passable due to blocking tree parts.
In order to protect the health of the invited nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts from Southern and Western Palatinate, the organizers ask for understanding for the postponement and are happy to make up for the hike under safe conditions at a later date.
