There’s a very special experience waiting for parents and children right next to the Hochbifangbahn in Altenmarkt: the Fichtelland! Enjoy an unhurried ascent to the edge of the forest with the platter lift to the entrance of the world of the Fichtel. The little inhabitants of the spruce forest have a few surprises in store, which can be discovered while gliding down the safe forest piste.
Seek, see and hear Fichtel and other inhabitants of the forest
A wide archways marks the entrance to the Fichtelland. But who are the forest creatures that are probably related to gnomes? Spruces shed cones every year, which land on the forest floor. Some cones develop into small creatures that can only be found in this particular forest in Altenmarkt: the Fichtel! Some hide from skiers; others won’t allow themselves be kept from working. These small creatures also share the Fichtelwald with lots of animals!
