The environmental garden in Wiesmühl an der Alz gives an insight into the wonders and great biodiversity of the local nature. The one-hectare area was set up in 1997 on the initiative of the State Association for Bird Protection and is home to a large number of attractions that can be accessed via a circular route: dry biotopes and herb spirals, a teaching apiary and insect clay wall, a touch and feel path and the "Ecoboard" guessing game - all of that sensitizes children and interested people to the concerns of nature in a sustainable way.
From nature to craftsmanship
As a further attraction, the adjoining glass underwater world provides exciting insights into the habitat of carp, sturgeon, pike and Co. Not far from there is the floodplain nature trail. A visit to the art and flag embroidery workshop Jaeschke and Zwislsperger, which is in demand nationwide, shows that traditional handicrafts also play an important role in Engelsberg. Needlework has been cultivated there since 1978.
