Many small showcases, doors and more give visitors an insight into the world of elves and fairies. Lovingly decorated and with story windows describing everything that happens in the forest, it transports walkers into a magical world steeped in legend. Some Castiel legends are also included. The adventure trail for young and old is about one kilometre long. The forest trail is a dead end, but lies on the route of the Schanfigger Dörferweg (village trail). 

Author’s recommendation

Combine the theme trail with the Schanfigger Dörferweg (village trail), which lets you get to know the villages of the entire Schanfigg up close.
