"the white deer"

Adventure playground

A great adventure playground has been created for hiking enthusiasts of all ages at the Schmiedhofalm on the Schmittenhöhe at the end of the family-friendly mythical "Mystic Forest" hiking trail. The "white deer" offers not only climbing facilities, there are also many caves that can be explored.
