Hiking with schoolchildren

These hiking tips provide plenty of opportunity for amusement and discovery!

Hiking with the family – schoolchildren aged 6–13

Schoolchildren love challenges but don’t want to be overwhelmed. Amongst these hiking tips, there is no shortage of amusement! A streambed or a small climbing wall is far more interesting than a mountain hut or a summit cross.

Hiking trails lead to a research path, a treasure hunt, a smuggler’s path, into a gorge, over bridges and even to a ‘sea of stones’… These hiking trails guarantee adventure for curious kids and their parents! You’ll be amazed how quickly time flies!

      Description

      How important are forests and what species of tree grow in the Bregenzerwald? The Rotenberg forest trail provides a good overview of the answer to these questions. It leads from Lingenau or Hittisau through a particularly species-rich mixed forest with silver fir (which are typical of the Bregenzerwald), beech, spruce, ash, maple, elm and linden trees. Nineteen stations along the way, including a forest room, a high moor and a…

      Description

      At the end of the Ice Age, a lake emerged at the foot of the Hochhäderich. The Bolgenach carved its path out of the cliffs which formed the “dam wall” of the lake. And so the Komma gorge arose. For almost 300 years, the Komma bridge has been crossing the river and the gorge at a height of 15 m: this bridge is the oldest covered bridge in the province.…
