Waldhusche Hinterhermsdorf

Short facts

Saxon Switzerland National Park Information Centre

What exactly is a forest hut?...Or even a giant timber tree?...What is game browsing?...How does natural regeneration work?...Why were game fences built in the past?...And what is a planting camp?...You can find the answers to these questions at the 66-hectare exhibition and adventure site Waldhusche in Hinterhermsdorf. Children and adults can experience practical hands-on lessons here: Go on a discovery tour through the Waldhusche open-air forest history area, embark on an active educational journey through the forest, especially with your children! You will encounter many surprising and new things in the hands-on activities at the stations, as well as historical forestry work and thought-provoking ideas about future forest utilisation. The outdoor area is particularly suitable for children for "active forest exploration".
Four interlinked themed trails combine impressive historical forestry facilities with active play elements and stations for pure enjoyment of nature. Of course, we have thought especially of families with children.

In addition, there are two information centres of the national park in the Waldhusche: the Beizehaus and the Blockscheune.
