The walk starts at the pond of Hilmteich with almost always Mallard. From the pond you walk up to the beech forest where you can encounter Black Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Eurasian Nuthatch, Eurasian Treecreeper, Collared Flycatcher and different species of finches and tits. This walk is really interesting and easy for starting bird watchers (and their kids!).



There are no parking spaces in Hilmteich, but you can easily reach this location via tram, and come back via tram too from Mariatrost. The route is 5 km long (one way).
