Wonderful views and the manageable distance make it an attractive hike for all ages. In mid-June, the opening of the Zwölfer circuit with its twelve stations along the trail will make it even more entertaining and fun for children.

Startin at the Zwölferhorn top station, our experienced herbalist, Christine Buchegger, will take you on a 2-hour hike across meadows and through forests. She will educate you on the herbs that grow along the way, which you will then pick, process and, of course, taste together. In addition to the relaxation and tranquility that is guaranteed to inspire your everyday life after this hike, you will also take home a lot of knowledge as well as a detailed script and various recipe ideas.
