Chiemsee-Chiemgau planned a hike.
May 24, 2020
Kölli is a ghost, a wooden ghost. Its territory is the Rauschberg summit. Up here, at an altitude of 1,645 meters, he watches over trees and forests.The mountain railway takes you comfortably up to the Rauschberg in around six minutes. From the mountain station it goes on the main path and past the Rauschberghaus directly to the entrance gate of the Holzgeisterweg, where Kölli is already waiting for his guests. He sends them on a circular route where everything revolves around wood. It has been mined in and around Ruhpolding for ages. Many old wooden drifts - something like water transport routes - or the Holzknecht Museum in the Laubau district bear witness to this.The Holzgeisterweg takes a playful look at the topic. A log that you can walk into is only one of seven stops on the way. What is dead wood for? Why is it so important and for whom? Why is a mountain forest the best avalanche protection and what dangers is it exposed to? Connections are clearly illustrated on pictures and display boards. It takes around 45 minutes for the Holzgeisterweg, which is also very easy to walk on with prams. The panorama is magnificent everywhere, it goes into the Alps and out into the Alpine foothills. The interactive educational and adventure trail was created under the leadership of the Bavarian State Forests in cooperation with the Office for Food, Agriculture and Forestry, the municipality of Ruhpolding and the Rauschbergbahn.
