It’s cold, wet and a bit slippery. But the weather is not a problem for the participants of all ages taking part in the winter survival training. They are far too busy following a trail. It leads through the snowy landscape near Starnberg towards the forest. The paw prints of an animal are clear to see. Probably a fox on the prowl. The snow makes it much easier to identify paw and hoof prints. Wilderness instructor Tatjana Falk immediately knows what animal has made these tracks.
The forest has become her second home. She feels safe here, knows her way around and is happy. It is precisely this feeling that the 49-year-old together with her husband, Momme Torsten, passes on to participants in her nature and wilderness school, Waapiti.
