Theme trails for children and families
The region offers little explorers a large network of remarkable outdoor stations, inviting children to learn about nature and helping them to better understand its wonders. On their exploration trips with the mascot “Hase Hoppl”, children playfully discover nature and get to know more about the classical elements – earth, water, wind and fire. Senn’s WunderWanderWeg provides them with all kinds of interesting information concerning the indigenous plant, herbal and animal worlds. This circular trail is considered to be a particularly family-oriented tourist attraction and its 25 outdoor stations guarantee fun for everyone!
Not only nature lovers, but also all thrillseekers will find the region to be the perfect backdrop for their holiday! For example, youths can test their biking skills at a trial lesson or have a go at archery whereas a vespertine torchlight hike offers the opportunity to experience the region’s mysterious side.
