Feeling happiness is a state that we all want to feel within us as often as possible. The goal of every thinking person is not the happiness supposedly to be expected from winning the lottery, but the state of inner well-being.

The name Grünau goes well with the color that dominates the entire landscape, but the name has an even deeper meaning. Jakob Grimm considered the "green meadows" to be sanctuaries of the Germanic goddess Berchta. The Berchten cult was at home in Austria, the Berchten nights are the rough nights. And there were also the maidens, who were primarily at Kasberg. They hung up their crisp white linen and disappeared, leaving the scent of roses when an uninvited man approached.

* Glöckerlweg this hiking trail from Grünau-Ort to Enzenbachmühle has two viewpoints that offer a wonderful panoramic view of Grünau and the surrounding area. This path got its name from the many lilies of the valley that line the path in May and June.
* Treehouse at the Hochberghaus: Treehouse with drawbridge at 1200 m above sea level with a view of the valley (ideal for retreats) directly at the Hochberghaus mountain inn.
* Kaibling - Friedenskreuz Friedenskreuz - community Pettenbach Friedensplatz. A 700-year-old linden tree stands at Kaibling, but it could no longer withstand the weather and collapsed. However, the owner of the property, the “Oberkaiblinger”, had a roof drawn over the trunk in honor of the linden tree so that it is protected as well as possible.
* Moasenkögerl - Scharnstein - natural site
