What to expect in the Sensory experience park for the Senses?
First of all there is Leo’s water world, with a waterfall you can walk through, and Kneipp basins, an integrated barefoot path and herb and Alpine flower walk with between 80 and 100 plants, trees, shrubs, Alpine flowers, and kitchen herbs, all near to the mid station of the lift.
The park is interesting for visitors of all ages. There are more than 30 stations to investigate and experiment at, either individually or in groups, and suitable either to peruse whilst passing, or to spend longer at. There are information signs to tell you what it’s all about. Awaken your senses!
Where is the Sensory experience park for the Senses?
You get to the park by taking the 8-seater Asitz gondola lift; the bottom lift station is in the Hütten part of Leogang. The Discovery Park for the Senses is near to the mid station, next to Alpine pastures and partially in woodland. The Stöcklalm provides meals and refreshments.
Leo’s Waterworld with its various activity stations is at the mid station of the lift, in the Discovery Park for the Senses. At first sight, on entering the park, you may think that it is a children’s playground. However, visitors quickly realise that this is also of interest to adults. The Discovery Park for the Senses has a range of different, exciting activity stations for young scientists and their families to enjoy.
There are 24 different smells hidden in the smelling tree. You can pull out single drawers and take a smell on it. Can you separate the different smells? Does it remind you at something? Is it lavender, nutmeg or strawberry?
We grind grains with stones to flour, knead the dough with the hands, form the flatbread and roll it out flat. After that the flatbread is crispy baked in the oven. Smell and taste the handmade flatbread and listen to an exciting story while you are eating.
Find out how your eyes react to different optical phenomena and amaze yourself at how images appear to move all by themselves, and how you appear to see things that your neighbour can’t see at all.
Touch with closed hand into the giant wooden hand. You can touch alternating with the right and the left hand and with closed eyes into the giant hand. Try to separate rough from soft, wood from metal etc. from each other.
