"It is in our nature to play, and it is in our nature to play in nature."

The great thing about playing in nature is that anyone can do it, anywhere, anytime. Nature is the best playground - whether in a park, in the woods or in the mountains, there is so much to experience and discover. 

Everywhere on our trails there is space for exuberant play. Every clearing in the woods, every path through a fragrant meadow or stream can be the starting point for unforgettable playtime.

PLAY IN THE FOREST

Run like a fox between the trees. Hopping over the roots like a squirrel. Busy as an ant foraging. From the floor to the treetops, our forests are teeming with life. So boundless and free in all directions, the inspiration to play comes all by itself.

PLAY ON THE PATH & MEADOW

Take off your shoes and run barefoot across the meadow, rolling in the fresh grass and sticking your nose in the lush green. Get grass stains on your trousers. Green patsches of happiness, light-heartedness and freedom that will stay with you for a long time.

PLAY WITH STONES & ROCKS

You can find them in all shapes and sizes by the wayside - stones and rocks. They are round like pebblestones, pointed like towers, have rough surface or glisten in the sunlight. Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, they fit together to create a huge playground.
