On the traces of wild animals

Hello, dear forest visitors!

If you always wanted to know what the difference between red deer and stag is, what the fox's daily menu looks like and why ibexes love steep terrain, then this is definitely the place to go. "On the traces of wild animals" is a theme walking route that starts in the rear part of the WIDIVERSUM and leads small naturalists through the forest where they meet ten talkative specimens of wild animals.

Hiking and collecting information

Along the well-maintained loop walking route towards "Rotes Wandl" rock wall - also suitable for baby prams - 10 local wild animals have found their hiding place. Simply walk through the forest with your eyes open, watch out especially for tree trunks or rocks. For each single animal an information board reveals many interesting things about the forest and its wildlife habitat. What qualities they have, what they like to eat, who belongs to their family and how they can survive such a long and cold winter - all these interesting facts are not hard to remember thanks to easily understandable texts. In between there are cozy rest stop areas where you discuss newly acquired knowledge about owls, badgers and many more Alpine animals. And with a bit of luck you can also marvel at real marmots, chamois and capercaillie during your hiking tours in Hochoetz!
