Paradise Path Palfau

Open
Beautiful walk along the rushing Salza river. Suitable for families with small children or for older people.
The path, which runs mostly flat on the left bank of the Salza, leads mainly through shady high forest to the "An der Wacht" area between Erzhalden and Palfau.

After a slight ascent on a forest path, with a wonderful view of the other side of the valley to Palfau
