Forest playground Spiegelau


Kids can connect with nature through play at the forest playground in the Bavarian Forest National Park. The 50-hectare site has numerous adventures in store for youngsters. It’s the ideal place for a family excursion, no matter the season! There are three exciting areas to explore here.

Nature Discovery Trail:

Visitors can gain a range of unique insights into the forest at ten interesting stations. Play music with natural materials, trace plant textures with your fingertips, walk barefoot over the forest floor, listen in on bird song, savour natural aromas or simply pause to take it all in – all this and more is possible on the roughly two-kilometre Nature Discovery Trail. Great fun for young and old alike.

Free booklets, with many exciting tasks, are available in the touristinfo Spiegelau, the Hans-Eisenmann-Haus and the Haus zur Wildnis.


Feel like letting off some steam? Then there’s no better place to be than our playgrounds. Kids can slide, climb, play and swing to their heart’s content here. There’s even a white-knuckle zip line to try out. Several of the attractions are accessible with assistance, as are large sections of the trail network in the forest playground. Please note that the majority of the play apparatus is removed during the winter.

Forest Meadow:

In the heart of the site, the forest meadow offers lots of wide open space for running around. Seek out dragonflies in the ponds, observe the teeming activity in the insect hotel or even try your hand at being a woodpecker. On top of that, there’s a campfire area and a sheltered section in case of bad weather. By the way, the meadow is also the perfect place to make snow sculptures in the winter!

Easily accessible by Igelbus and Waldbahn!
