Abenteuer Eisen - traditionelles Handwerk rund um Steyr erleben!
bookable as of 21 persons
Arrival in the Romantic Town of Steyr, idyllically located at the confluence of the Enns and Steyr Rivers. After checking into your booked hotel room you have the opportunity to set out and explore the town on your own.
Today you travel along the historic iron road to the Erzberg Mountain behind Eisenerz. Explore the Erzberg Adventure Park and ride in the world’s largest taxi – the Hauly – up the various tiers of the Styrian Erzberg Mountain.
The return journey leads you over the Hengstpass and through the idyllic National Park region to the Jew’s harp makers in Molln. Visit the demonstration shop of the Wimmer Family, where these legendary Music instruments are still being made in the traditional way. In the evening two night watchmen wearing traditional clothing and carrying a halberd, horn and lantern will await you to accompany you through the medieval town recounting stories and legends of bygone days. Climbing up to the top of the parish church spire you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view over the old town of Steyr.
After breakfast, visit to our nail makers in the Dambachtal Valley. Discover the traditional craft in its original surroundings and make your own “nails with heads”. The trip then continues along the Enns River to the National Park Visitors’ Centre in the Ennstal Valley. Learn in the exhibition “The Wonder World of Forest Wilderness” about the talking drummers in the forest, forest houses,
wood eaters and the return of the forest wilderness into the Kalkalpen National Park.
Afterwards ride on a flat-bottomed boat on the deep green Enns River. View the land from an entirely new perspective and learn some interesting facts about the river and its history.
