Our excursion tips:
You can experience the forest in an unusual way in the course for handicapped people, the only one of its kind in Germany, in the Schönberg Outdoor Tightrope Park. This gives people with a physical and/or mental handicap the opportunity to get to know the forest from a different perspective at nine stations at a height of up to 12 metres. If you would prefer to discover the forest with its unique nature on terra firma, you are welcome to take a walk through the idyllic Spiegelau Spa Park. The highlight: Directly at the spa park there is an outdoor Kneipp facility where a ramp is also provided to make it easy for you to get into the water. The cool wetness and the pleasant current of the Ohe River have a wonderfully refreshing effect. You can also experience the Bavarian Forest with all your senses on the circular trail in the Spiegelau Forest Playground – because here in the Bavarian Forest Nature Reserve the motto “Leave Nature to be Nature” reigns supreme.
Nature and culture in the Ilztal valley
To walk along the Ilz, the last great white water of Eastern Bavaria is an absolute must for all nature lovers. Walking past meadows, floodplains and cliffs you will discover the richness of nature beside the “Black Pearl” as the Ilz is also called because of its colour. Wheelchair users can comfortably move along the Ilz without encountering any inclines. In the Celtic Village of Gabreta the past is brought to life – history you can actually touch and feel. Allowing you to immerse yourself in the mysterious world of the Celts and to experience the everyday lives of the Celts at first hand in various participatory activities, the Celtic Village of Gabreta offers excitement and fun for the whole family. In the [HEIMAT.MUSEUM (HOMELAND MUSEUM): Röhrnbach.Kaltenbach] you can also go on a trip through time on the exhibition area at ground level and gain an insight into life in the past in Röhrnbach and Kaltenbach.
