Turn-by-turn directions

From the valley station of the Reinswald cable car, the trail leads to the Pfnatschalm mountain restaurant past gigantic funny animal figures made from wood. The starting point can be reached on the Reinswald cable car. At the Pfnatschalm, it is all about Water. Kids can play with water wheels and water courses or glide over the pond on a wooden raft.

Then carry on to the Pichlbergalm and the Getrumalm Alpine farm which takes up the theme of History and Culture. From the Getrumalm down to the bends in the trail it is all about the world of Plants. Families can learn a great deal about the Forces of Nature from where the trail bends as far as the Reinswalder Mühlen Alpine farm. And the last part of the themed walk concerns the Alpine Meadow. If so desired, the family hike can be shortened.
