Tour through the four seasons with Rabe Hias
Along this roughly one kilometer-long theme path in Golling, you and your children will learn all about nature in the area with the help of 32 information stations. They tell you about the forest animals, big and small, about rare plants and mighty trees. Your constant companion is Rabe Hias, the helpful crow, who enchants the children at every station and puts a big smile on their faces.
Adding to the adventure are several interactive locations in the forest. Whether the maze, watching the bees busily buzzing in and out of the hive, a balance course or the Celtic Tree Horoscope: You are certain to have lots of unforgettable experiences in the fresh air of Golling, in the Tennengau region of Salzburg.
And after so many discoveries with your children, you will certainly need to catch your breath from time to time. We suggest making yourself comfortable on one of the benches located at particularly scenic spots along the pathway.
