Our educational offer is aimed at different groups. For the appropriate tour, please pay attention to the age recommendation. All offers are adapted accordingly depending on age and school type or prior technical knowledge.
Programs are conducted from a group size of at least 10 people. In the field we share groups from 31 people. In the educational center, a maximum of two groups (60 people) can be taken care of. Please understand if there is not enough staff available to take care of a large group. Early registration helps us with the organization.
At the detailed descriptions of our programs you will find the minimum and maximum duration of the events. You can determine the duration of your event within this framework, depending on time availability and public transport connections.
For all educational activities, you will need clothing suitable for the weather and sturdy shoes with non-slip soles. Please also wear them for activities in the education center, as we move from there to the outdoor area. Please bring your own binoculars, magnifying glasses and identification books. If no stop is planned/possible, please provide yourself with sufficient food and drink.
In the "Haus der Berge", great importance was attached to barrier-free implementation. People with mobile restrictions can reach the education center in the "Haus der Berge" via the access road on the Gmundberg. We are also happy to offer programs and excursions for people with disabilities in the National Park. Route selection and program design are made according to the target group after consultation. Guided tours in sign language are also possible on request.
Accompanying persons or teachers are obliged to pass on the above safety instructions to all participants or their legal guardians and to ensure strict compliance with the established rules. Please understand that in the event of wilful violations of the rules, the event must be terminated.
In accordance with the educational mission of the National Park, all events are free of charge with the exception of costs incurred through the use of external offers (e.g. boat trip Königssee or Jennerbahn). These costs are indicated separately in the booklet.
The starting points of our programs and the "Haus der Berge" are easily accessible by public transport. We are happy to comply with the respective arrival and departure times. The tours usually end back at the respective meeting point.
In principle, we offer our programs throughout the season. However, some themes are only bookable in certain periods. This period can shift slightly due to the current weather (e.g. snow conditions). In the description of the programs is pointed out a restriction.
Digital registration is required for each individual event. The form can be found under the respective event description. A separate form must be completed for each event. Once we have received your registration, we will send you a confirmation of the date or a message if the date is no longer available. Please register as early as possible. Our team will contact you personally a few days before the date to discuss the details. If you have to cancel a guided tour, we are usually unable to offer alternative dates.
You can reach us Mo, Tue & Thu from 9.00 to 11.30 a.m.
