The children can discover and experience a lot on the wilderness adventure trail “Home game for the wilderness” in St. Wilhelm near Oberried. The path leads through core zones of the Black Forest biosphere area. This special nature and the animals living in it are brought closer to the visitors.
The Children's trail starts at the school in St. Wilhelm, a district of Oberried. Over a distance of 4,9 km, the circular route offers 14 interactive stations that invite you to join in. The path is varied, leads through untouched nature and on narrow paths through the small side valley of the Feldberg. At a little more than halfway, the path turns into a high alpine path, which is only recommended for sure-footed hikers. Those who do not trust themselves on this section of the route can continue on the alternative route.
14 interactive stations
At the first station, however, it is first determined whether you belong to the Füchsle or Lüchsle team. Füchsle and Lüchsle are the path mascots and accompany you the entire way. Further stations deal completely with nature. So at the sixth station a test will be done with you. Only when you answer the five questions correctly will the door to the core zone open. At other stations, you can hear the animals in the forest by cycling or balance nature's scales.
