Welcome to the Ilsenstein forest, home to deep valleys, granite mountains and two hungry children called Hansel and Gretel. Before we catch up with the two heroes of our story, tell me – are you any good at riddles? Here’s one for you to try and solve: I have streets, but no pavement. I have cities, but no buildings. I have forests, yet no trees. I have rivers, yet no water. What am I? The answer is at the bottom of the page.
The answer to the riddle at the beginning of this activity is... a map!
