You start directly in Kleinarl and hike along the educational trail "On the trail of milk and cheese" to the Hirschleitenhof. There you will find the dairy workshop of Bio aus dem Tal (Bio from the Valley). So, you also have a worthwhile destination in mind, at the Hirschleitenhof you can taste the delicious food directly, as there’s a self-service fridge is waiting for you there. The farm shop is also open on Friday afternoon. But on this hike, the children forget that they have already hiked quite a distance, as thanks to all the new impressions, they hardly notice that they are walking.
Along the nature trail you will pass seven stations. You’ll find a cow at each one. Alma, Lieselotte, Rosa, Hildegard, Glück, Flecki and COOLinda are waiting for you. They will show you their home and tell you why they like living here so much and what they do all day. When you get up close to the cows, scan a QR code and you’ll find a website with lots of in-depth knowledge on the respective topic. An interesting quiz gives you the chance to consolidate your new knowledge. Up at the Hirschleitenhof you are the critical testers. You decide whether you can taste the difference between freshly produced and industrially produced cheese. And above all, which cheese you like better.
