Schwaegalp NatureExperience Park Hiking Trail

Natur discovery park

Wheelchairs are able to get through some paths in the NaturErlebnispark natural park, but these do not meet regular standards. A strong person to hold or push the wheelchair is therefore required. The following theme trails are wheelchair accessible:

  • “Geologie-Steinpark” geological stone park: recommended (approx. 200 meters)
  • “Waldweg” forest trail: possible (we recommend going counterclockwise; one short, steep section, approx. 50 meters)

We do not recommend going on the Alpine farming, moors, People and the environment theme trails with a wheelchair.
