In the far south of Bavaria, in the triangle between Munich, the Zugspitze and Neuschwanstein Castle, lies the nature reserve of the Ammergau Alps with its impressive forests. Visitors can enjoy exciting glimpses of this natural habitat on a walk along the Timberland Trail through the Ludwigsschlucht gorge in Bad Kohlgrub. This lively forest adventure trail includes a balance raft, forest windows and much more. At hands-on activity stations, walkers can find out all sorts of information about the flora and fauna of the biotope, and learn such things as how the forest floor absorbs and stores water and thus helps to provide valuable drinking water. People with impaired sight can also find elements that bring the forest to life through the sense of touch.
Tip: The free Locandy app (available from the App Store or the Playstore) offers an interactive forest experience: Finni the squirrel accompanies families through the Schluchtwald forest. Through exciting games and stories, children learn all sorts of things about the forest and its inhabitants. The app is designed like an audio book, so even young children can follow the stories.
