Thanks to the creativity of different artists, this fairy-tale path in the woods was created, just a stone’s throw away from the Monte Verità. Easy walk for everyone and where exciting encounters with funny wooden sculptures are guaranteed. The silence and the atmosphere of the forest make it a truly magical place. At the entrance point there is a nice play ground and a wide green space as well as a picnic area with grill facility. There are also parking spaces and a small bar. Those who want to extend their tour have plenty of options. In the surrounding forests there are many hiking paths of various lengths and difficulty levels.
