Magic Forest
The Magic Forest is located in the Ramsau area, between the Houhu and Marx canyons. It was formed between 3500 and 4000 years ago and covers an area of about 0.75 square kilometers. Nowadays, you can travel through the forest through hiking. The forest trails follow the tributaries of the Houhu Lake, and the streams are full of birds and flowers, which are suitable for walking. The enchanted forest was named after the 1920s and 1930s. Due to its landslide scenery, forests and streams, it created a romantic atmosphere. Later, it gradually developed into a famous tourist attraction, and there was a tourist introduction card that simulates a drawing board. There are many hiking routes in the
magical forest. The most common and classic is to start from Houhu, then enter and cross the magical forest, follow the signs to the Ramsau Kirche stop and end at Ramsau's church. The self-driving partner can take bus 846 from the chapel to the back lake, and the lake is the terminal. After the lake, take the car and leave. The reason why the back lake is recommended as a starting point for hiking is that most people start from the Ramsau church because it can save energy by going downhill all the way. The whole journey takes about two hours.
There is another route that we chose on the day. After entering the magical forest, we followed the rund um den hintersee signpost to the direction. Close to the lake, through a small part of the magic forest, around the lake and then to the starting point of the previous parking, the whole journey is expected to be 45 minutes to 1 hour. This is a compromise for us who travel to the chapel because of the inconvenience of rain, and want to experience the magic forest walk.
The enchanted forest has the same magical power as its name. The towering old trees, the misty mist, the green moss, the meandering stream, except that we did not encounter a tourist all the way, always felt that the next second would meet the little red riding hat hiding deep in the woods. Germany's hiking routes are very mature, and every time you walk, there will be signs and display boards to tell you how long it will take you to complete the journey. The whole road is gentle and spacious, and compared with the hiking route on the lake yesterday, it can be considered a smooth road.
The forest is like a big oxygen bar, people can't help but take a deep breath. If at home, such a scenery must be overcrowded, how can we still enjoy such tranquility and relaxation? So, come to Ramsau, don't miss it.
