Hexenwasser Söll Hohe Salve

MARVEL - CONTEMPLATE - COMPREHEND

Hexenwasser starts a new season again from 14th May 2016.

With more than 60 wet and wonderful stations, the Hexenwasser theme park, meaning Witch Water, offers a natural experience and encourages the whole family to discover and explore - daily from 09.00 am to 5.30 pm.
Humming stone, witch’s fireplace, singing water bowl, witch’s stone mill, home of the queen bee, witch’s ladder…these are the mysterious titles, as though in a picture book! Anyone aged 3 to 103 can read this book! The people in charge of each station make sure visitors get to see and experience the fascinating wonders of nature in a fun way. Walking barefoot over rocks and stones, through streams and meadows on the longest barefoot trail is reflexology for your feet and revives the entire body. Watch the bees coming and going in the Bee Theatre, copy the bees’ tail wagging dance or even go into the pitch-black beehive, and you’ll soon be walking on air too!

The Hohe Salve - the highlight at Hexenwasser ...
...with sunshine and happiness one sees the peaks of more than 70 three thousand metre-high mountains! At the “sun stations” with their sundials, the history of timekeeping is unfurled and the sound of the wind harp creates a very special fascination!

The Hexenwasser Activity programme

The Hexenwasser Activity programme (14.05.-23.10.2016)

The Witch’s Stone Mill
11 am – 4.30 pm daily
Observe forces of nature at work at the old stone mill and see for yourself how water is stronger than stone! Then be amazed by other phenomena that guarantee to impress you.
The Witch’s Hearth
11 am – 4.30 pm daily
The history of fire is brought to life at the witch’s hearth – as well as the history of bread. Experience how fire was made the old-fashioned way and how delicious bread was baked in the olden days using freshly ground grain, water, salt and local herbs and spices.
The Witch’s Umbrella
11 am – 4.30 pm daily
When chanting sounds hover above the Hohe Salve, you can be sure it is the singing water bowl at the witch’s umbrellas. To make music fill the air, wet your hands and place them on both handles of the bowl. When you rub the palms of your hands or fingers on the handles, the bowl begins to resonate. A mighty sphere of sound then begins to spread. Here, depending on the pitch, different geometric patterns appear on the surface. See, hear and feel: this game for the senses becomes a fascinating, holistic experience that excites not just the user of the singing water bowl.
The Apiary
11 am – 4.30 pm daily
See a real monarchy at Hexenwasser – at the apiary! Marvel at the busy bees buzzing around the hive entrances, find the guardian bee and queen bee in the display hive and listen to our staff at Hexenwasser explain how honey comes to be on your bread and why bees play a critical role in nature’s cycle.
