Outdoor Area

At the Outdoor Area, visitors can enjoy spectacular views onto Mt Jenner, Mt Watzmann and Mt Hochkalter or they just relax on the lawn chairs. Children can climb, slide, explore the tree house or they use Wimbach Valley’s rubble to build dams at the creek.

 

The historical “Almkaser”, as well as the theme places of water, meadow and forest are reserved for registered participants of the Educational Centre’s events.

The mountain arena fulfils a double function: groups and individual visitors can use it.

 

The outside area is divided into:

Panoramic path

Walk through the outer region of the National Park Centre

 

You can explore the barrier-free panoramic path with beautiful views into the National Park, as well as the adventure area for children free of charge. Use the Foyer to get access to the publicly accessible area of the outdoor area. Here, dogs are allowed on a short leash.

 

Nature Education Area

The nature experience area is available to registered groups during environmental education programs. Together with its four subject courses it is the best way to learn and experience.

Water Course

The water course is close to the Educational Centre. A small, standing water, which is surrounded by water-loving plants, offers tadpoles the best habitat conditions in spring. Who wants to learn more about water and mechanical water use, can use numerous opportunities – like hand pump or a water channel – for experimenting.

 

Forest Space

 

Forest Place

Experience your sense of touch by using a barefoot path. The National Park’s main tree species are located close to this creatively designed area and invite you for a closer look. How much life is in dead wood and how is wood transformed in life-giving soil with the help of many organisms? This and more can be explored with binocular and magnifying glasses.

 

Meadows Place

 

Meadow Place

A spacious, over-sized Cobweb invites as a giant hammock to relax and explore the area from above – without leaving the usual tracks in the grass. Several meadow plants and animals can be seen in detail.

 

Historic Alpine pasture hut

 

Historic Alpine Pasture Hut

Embedded in his new environment you can visit the historical "Lahnerkaser", an alpine hut built in 1848. It originally stood at the foot of Mt Watzmann in the National Park. Because there was no further use for many years, it was removed and rebuilt with great care at the “Haus der Berge”. Also the “Kaser’s” inner life was not changed.

 

During educational programmes groups and school classes get a closer look to the not only romantic side of Alpine life. They can experience at first-hand how simple and burdensome life at an Alm used to be.

Herb and Vegetable Garden

The sunny herb and vegetable garden provides not only native plants a Habitat. There also various Mediterranean plants and rare fruit and vegetables thrive in addition to major kitchen herbs. Because of a strict biological management, the plants are proper for further use in the kitchen. In group programs, participants get to know the different plants with all their senses and learn about their use and healing effects.
