A GREAT TREASURE HUNT BETWEEN THE GROUND OF THE FOREST AND THE TIPS OF THE TREES
The Stubai valley in Tyrol has another attraction and a new great destination for a day trip with the entire family. The new tree house trail between the central station of the Schlick 2000 and the Alpine hut Vergör is ideal for hiking with kids. The trail is easy, suitable for prams and can be managed in around one hour. On the way there are plenty of places to rest and play. There are even three refreshment options covering the trail: the Fronebenalm hut, the Bruggeralm hut and the snack bar Vergör.
To find out what makes the STUBAI tree house trail special, it’s worth taking a look up, as along the way several tree houses invite visitors to play, climb, have fun, make discoveries and relax. The dwarf Bardin, who once mined precious metals with his friends in the Stubai Alps, has chosen this part of the forest to rest and set up home. As the last remaining one of his kind, he looks after the animals and plants in the forest. However, Bardin looks forward to having visitors above all else. Especially for them he’s prepared lots of slides, ropes, crawl tunnels and places to play.
The tree houses symbolise the individual parts of the dwarf’s dwelling: Bardin searched for, and found, the most beautiful and grandest trees in the forest for the dwarf playing ground, the dwarf treasure chamber, the dwarf kitchen, the dwarf bedroom and the dwarf workshop. He found many of the building materials right there and with a loving attention to detail made them into a large, close-to-nature and sustainable play and experience trail, which is a beautiful destination for a family trip in Tirol.
If you like you can also search for Bardin’s treasure. At the entrance to the tree house trail there are “treasure cards” next to the welcome sign. Bardin has hidden a particular symbol in each tree house. At the end of the hike the children can exchange their cards for a small reward at the Fronebenalm hut, the Bruggeralm hut, the snack bar Vergör or at the Schlick 2000 valley station. An unforgettable experience for the entire family and a playful journey back to the past of construction in the mountain of the Stubai valley!
