Tour description:

02:30 h. marquart stone

The circular route starts at the mountain station of the Hochplattenbahn , where an overview board provides information about the entire mountain forest adventure trail. After you have gotten an initial overview, you can start: the four-kilometre tour has 20 stations where children can let off steam and learn a lot about nature in a playful way.

In addition to a large silhouette wall in which you can "fit in", there are play huts or sound boards along the way where you can listen to the different tones of wood. Those hungry for knowledge put their curiosity to various information boards that provide information about alpine farming, forest management, geology and avalanche control.

Hanging chairs, benches or the relaxation hill invite you to relax and take a little break in between. Strengthened and rested, you can continue to the next experiments. Discover the "humming stone" or try your hand at "lifting logs" .

Lying on your stomach in the "hang glider swing" you will feel like you are about to take off - hold on, feel free!
