Mountains from a bird's eye perspective
Not even a mighty eagle could make it to Lourdes on a single day! Even though hikers feel close to this unique pilgrimage site thanks to the small Lourdes Grotto and its statue of the Virgin Mary. You reach the chapel after conquering one third of the whole ascent. Without any effort walkers continue on the smooth forest trail leading to a giant golden eagle made of carved wood. The beautiful bird spreads out the wings covering almost 1.80 meters. You can climb the tree on a small staircase and watch the huge wings close-by. A kids‘ slide takes you down to earth again.
The king of birds – enjoy yourself an Eagle‘s View from almost 1,400 m altitude. Soar with the eagles towards the mighty Alpine peaks which only seem a stone‘s throw away.
You simply need a small telescope provided on the vantage platform to make out the nearby mountains: Fünffingerspitze, Hahlkogel, Fundusfeiler or Gamskogel.
