She passes her experience on, once a week in the summer, as part of a leisurely Herb. Discovery Walk through Altenmarkt. “Whether in the kitchen, in cosmetics or as a medicinal herb, the wild herbs do a very good job of helping people,” says Margarethe Balla.
During her guided 2 ½ hour herbal walk, which begins in the garden of her country house, then leads along a fence into the nearby forest, the guests get to know the often overlooked plants and learn a lot about the plants and their effects: “So many inconspicuous blossoms on the verges have a lot of power in them that the previous generations used for the healing of illnesses or for spicing food”.
The alpine hike with Margarethe Balla – also once a week from June to September – is just as exciting as the Herb.Discovery walk. It starts in Zauchensee and continues over the Stubhöhe to the Tauernkarleiten Alm, one of the most pristine mountain pastures in the region.
