Shovel fortress castle head

After a one-hour comfortable hike you will be provided with a unique view of the Tiroler Lech Nature Park. The entrance to the hike is directly at the Klause. If you are travelling with children, the whole family can use the treasure hunt booklet from the museum office to search for the legendary Schlosskopf treasure. When you have found the "talking treasure chest" and thus the solution, a surprise awaits you in the museum office.

On the castle head, an information board shows the historical riverbed of the Tyrolean Lech.

The baroque wheel is another absolute highlight - here you can move a heavy stone with a guide similar to a "hamster" as in those days.

Also on the Ehrenberg Ruin there is the "Search for the Magic Sword", which combines the hike with an exciting quest.
