The countryside is called Blaues Ländchen (blue country); in earlier times, sheep farming and cultivating flax were widespread and making cloth was a major source of income, and because the woad plant is quite common there, people used the blue dye that can be extracted from its leaves for dying the cloth – thus the name!

Looks like a very relaxing region. But knowing how splendid as the German countryside is, I must admit I'd like to be closer to the forests & rivers.
