Die zauberhaften Vier

Unsere Jahreszeiten

Our seasons dramatically shape the cycle of life. Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter - every season presents nature with new challenges. The constant change in living conditions demands maximum performance from animals and plants throughout the year. And the survival strategies of squirrel, fox and co. could hardly be more fascinating.

The film takes us on a breathtaking discovery tour through the native nature.
