The circular hike starts at the Lehen parking lot in Niederthai near the soccer pitch. From there, follow the asphalt road in the direction of Tellerboden. You hike along a wide forest path through mystical landscapes.

The fresh mountain air and the silence of nature invite you to enjoy a moment of peace and quiet and take in the beauty of the surroundings.

Enjoy the view of the neighboring community here and there. Look out for the hidden house of the woodland creatures and rest at the clearing before you come to an overgrown pond and a feeding station.


How do you find your treasure?

There are small caches (treasure boxes) along the marked route. Each cache contains a sheet of paper with secret letters. Write these letters into the right box of your treasure hunting map. Everyone who has found all caches and secret letters is able to compose the code word - knowing the code word, you can pick up a small present at the Information Umhausen or Niederthai.


Author’s recommendation

In the midway of the treasure hunt we recommend you to visit the "Hohen Stein". Therefor follow the signposted hiking trail to the Hohen Stein. After a fascinating panorama view on Längenfeld, walk the same hiking trail back to the Tauferberg Loop Trail and continue your treasure hunt.
