Where do mushrooms grow?

Pictures: Toxic mushrooms >>

Mushrooms generally grow where there are trees. In parks, gardens, but mostly in forests, the reason for this is the symbiotic partnership. Some mushrooms specialize in certain tree species, so there are mushroom species that are bound to eg coniferous trees and only occur here. Then there are again mushrooms on both conifers and deciduous trees. But mushrooms do not thrive under every tree.

Basically you can collect mushrooms in every forest. We show you the most beautiful areas for mushroom picking all over Germany.
