Foret Domaniale de Verzy, Verzy

#4 of 13 in Parks in Marne
Discover the amazing variety of enigmatic "faux" beech trees at Foret Domaniale de Verzy, the only place in all of Europe with this unique tree. These trees grow excessively slow, but have exceptional longevity, and many are therefore very old. Over 800 specimens with interesting twisted, spiraled trunks and branches reside at this national park.

Fossil evidence details the historical significance of the landscape and the trees that remain a mystery to scientists even with modern testing methods. You can take a leisurely walk along several different footpaths, take in beautiful views of Champagne vineyards, and stop at the informational panels with some explanations in English.

  • These are interesting woods, kind of a local secret, made special by a large number of trees that look as though they underwent a mutation. The background to the woods is also an interesting story involving monks contemplating the trees as part of their spiritual practice. There are parking areas, some picnic benches, and lots of trails. There are a few options for loop hikes.
