On Glücksweg in Wildenhag, with a low rope garden, children can now go on a "gold search". A found "gold piece" can then be exchanged for a popsicle.

Rich in hidden treasures is the Glücksweg in Wildenhag im Attergau. All adventurous children can, from May to October, go in search of gold pieces and diamonds. As a reward, you can recharge your batteries with a popsicle.

The way to happiness or to the popsicle
The start of this short hike is at the Waldmühle country hotel. From here you walk up, past the horse and chicken stables, into the forest behind. Here begins the search for little adventurers. To find the gold pieces and diamonds, each prospector needs a sieve, since the treasure is located on the bank and in the clear, flowing waters of the tiny stream along the Glücksweg. With the sieve, the little treasure hunters wash the diamonds and gold pieces from the water and free it from rocks.

During the strenuous search for the sparkling and glittering "gold treasures", you can also try your luck in the forest at the low ropes course, or find one of the rare four-leaf clovers.

If you are successful in your "gold hunt", the children should keep their treasures safe! Because the "gold pieces" can be exchanged for a popsicle at the Landhotel Waldmühle, right next door. 

Not only children but the whole family gets its money's worth on the Glücksweg. Enjoy nature consciously and let yourself be enchanted by the beautiful panorama incl. lake view at the Kronbergplatzerl at the end of the short hike.
