    Being Enchanted by Fairytale Magic at the Märchenwald Altenberg

    Today's main event is a visit to the Märchenwald (fairytale forest) Altenberg, where everything revolves around the fairytales written by the Brothers Grimm. Here, you and your children get to explore the different fairytales in a unique way. A visit to a local playground is also on the itinerary for today to allow your kids to get rid of any excess energy they might still have before it is time for dinner and bed to get a good night's rest – for tomorrow's adventures await.

    By the time you sorted everything at the hotel, your kids will already be super excited to enter the Märchenwald. Luckily, it is just a hop, a skip, and a jump from the hotel. In the forest, you will find over 20 little houses (stations) with life-like moving figures from the most beloved fairytales written by the Brothers Grimm.
