To the fairytale meadow, Fischbach

A leisurely circular hike for the whole family. Reading boards with fairy tales along the way make the hike varied and exciting for children.
From Fischbach we head towards Roseggersiedlung, where the path to the fairytale meadow is not far away. The way there is made exciting for all children with reading boards and old fairy tales. Once you arrive at the fairytale meadow, it is time for a rest before continuing around the Reithkogel. Here, a magnificent view of the Garden of Austria awaits at the sunbathing area. The hike can be rounded off with a game of mini golf for the whole family at Freizeitland Fischbach.
