Mooraculum

The biggest moorland adventure park in the Alps

Rossweid above Sörenberg is an area full of natural wonders to discover, smell, feel, savour and taste. Ponds, water toys, dexterity games, quiet areas, picnic spots and a 1.5-km-long circular adventure trail await visitors here. Just in time for the summer holidays, the ever-popular, pushchair-accessible Sonnentauweg trail is now accompanied by the larger Moorrundweg circular trail, complete with 17 adventure zones for children and teens.

Moorland Circular Trail

Opening: Sunday 11 July 2021

Do you know what a moor is? Moors are truly special landscapes that can only develop in places where the ground is permanently waterlogged. They take an extremely long time to develop, are very rare and therefore closely protected. Moors provide a habitat to unusual animals and flesh-eating plants; mosses form on the peat soil typical of this environment – which grows by about 1 mm a year. It therefore takes around 1,000 years for a metre of peat to form. Fascinating, isn’t it?

Expedition into the unknown

Yet this is not the only mystery to be explored on the Great Moorland Circular Trail. Extending over about 5 km, this adventure trail leads from Rossweid over the Salwiden and back to Rossweid. The unique habitat, the way it developed, its plants and animals with their diverse survival strategies, but also the myths, images and tales that surround the moor, form the focus of this varied walk. The expedition guests will be accompanied by six experts who have spent their lives here and who know all the moor’s secrets: participants will encounter a wolf, lynx, common frog, large marsh grasshopper, subarctic darner and wood grouse at the 17 interactive stations, where the creatures tell their personal stories – by moorland telephone!

Out on the moor in the role of explorer

The interactive stations require participants to solve puzzles, find the right combinations and prove their pioneering spirit. Real adventurers can pick up an explorers’ set, which contains expedition equipment, at the valley or mountain station of the Rossweid gondola lift. A magnifying glass, compass and other aides will help you to collect interesting research materials. In addition, there are tricky tasks to be completed, whose solutions are entered on the “moor-whisperer’s pass”. The right solutions will earn you an explorer’s reward at the end.

The biggest moorland adventure park in the Alps

For this challenging expeditionary tour, the efforts of the whole family are required. The circular walk takes approx. 4 to 5 hours, and there are of course plenty of wonderful resting spots along the way, where one can also simply relax for a while. After a successful exploration tour, visitors can play to their hearts’ content in the Moorland Adventure Park on Rossweid, go on further adventures and enjoy a well-earned ice cream on the restaurant terrace. For little visitors still needing a pushchair and unable to walk as far, we recommend the short, pushchair-friendly Sundew Trail. It’s time for a moorland adventure!
