Sports - leisure time

Lots of marked trails lead through forests, colourful blooming meadows and romantic ravines. More than 20 huts on the north and the south side of the valley invite you to have a rest. Mountaineers can hike to one of 60 peaks over 3.000m with experienced mountain guides.

“Water rats” find a slide and a diving platform at the outdoor swimming pool of Virgen. There are a tennis court and pitches for Beachball and Volleyball and a rink for inline skating. Rafting on the thundering “Isel” will be an attraction for tourists (holidaymakers) who love adventure. Mountain cyclists can drive along forest paths and paths along the fields.
