It's something our Tatzlwurm really does like -
He sighs with pleasure when he's on a hike.
Hang-gliding is also a sport he loves to do,
And watersports? He's learning them too.
And when the mountains have gone to sleep,
The Tatzlwurm rests happily, counting sheep.

A special hiking tip: Wallfahrtskirchlein Nuselberg
Pilgrimage church on the Nusel Mountain
A small trail begins at the Luegstein Lake and goes down in the direction of Mühlbach to the buildings at the end of the village. The trail continues down through the forests, past the guest house "Gfallermühle" on the road to Mühlau. Continue on this road uphill and you will reach the reservoir after a few meters. Cross the dam wall and from there, the trail winds down through the shady mixed forest to the little church with the nearby cabin in the meadow and the former hermitage. The legend of the church goes back to the year 1516, when children from Mühlau found kneeling sheep in front of a shrine image of the Virgin Mary. The formerly wooden church was replaced by a stone building from 1872 to 1875. Numerous votive tablets that date back to the 17th century bear witness to the faithful who sought comfort and healing here. The real place for a rest and a tremendous view of the Kaiser Mountains. Between the hermitage and the little church, a bridge will bring you to the west to Dörfli in Mühlau, that opens up to the Gemeindestraße near two farms. On the right a hiking trail begins which will take you back to the Reservoir along the foot of the Nusel Mountain.
