Entering the museum, a film shot from eagle's-eye-view provides you with an unusual impression of the park. A 3D relief provides visitors with multimedia information concerning the park's mountains, trails, refuges, lakes and waterfalls. A pendulum gives visitors a close-up look at how the mountains arose, while a kind of stone puzzle provides insight into the geological structure of the mountains. Visitor information systems give information concerning nature, the landscape and the evolution of the nature park region. And for kids there are fairy tales and legends from times past.
Entrance free!
