IS IT WITCHCRAFT?
WOW! SO MUCH THAT’S NEW AT THE HEXENWASSER
But where on earth does this mystical "other place" get its name from? This and lots of other little secrets will be revealed to visitors young and old by the Hexenwasser witches in the summer of 2019.
But there’s one thing we can tell you. The ladies on broomsticks have not simply conjured it all up out of thin air, because legends about Söll’s witches in Juffing and Saukogl have been handed down from the 16th century, so they’re as old as the hills.
IT IS WITCHCRAFT: A HOUSE WHICH ONCE STOOD ON THE BROMBERG IS MOVING IN ... BY WITCH POWER!
"As though bewitched", an old farmhouse is moving this year to its inhabitants in the middle of the Hexenwasser Söll. Using their "witch power," the Hexenwasser witches will bring the legend of the two sisters back to life. In addition, the beautiful old house is a living witness to the craftsmanship and home decor of earlier generations.
This summer the historic farmhouse, which is several centuries old, is being dismantled, beam by beam, labelled and transported, to be rebuilt piece by piece in its original form at its new location in the middle of the Hexenwasser.
The result is a new witch’s centre with witch’s kitchen, witch’s room, workshop, sewing room, witch’s stage and witch’s wellness salon. This year visitors will be able to follow developments and learn a lot about the witches. From 2020, with the descendants of Söll’s original witches, they will be able to create, simmer, conjure and marvel.
The new trail through the mystical "Experience Forest" will be an adventure in itself. Especially on cooler and rainy days, the planned " Witchcraft Trail" should offer plenty of opportunities even this summer and promises to be a successful extension of the overall concept. When visiting the Hexenwasser, this year there are lots of new surprises awaiting old hands.
A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE
The Hexenwasser gondola lift is slowly starting to change ...
from 2020, the Hexophony will be played on the gondola, and you'll never guess what's behind it.
From July 2020, a ride on the new Hexenwasser gondola will be "almost as beautiful as flying on a witch’s broomstick".
In future, in order to make the gondola ride a "real experience" rather than just a "means to an end", the Hexenwasser team has decided to replace the gondola lift, which is now over 30 years old, with a modern 10-seater gondola by July 2020.
Each cabin will be "bewitched" with its own motif and theme so that the adventure begins as soon as you come on board. The working title "Hexophony" suggests that there will also be some musical surprises in store for visitors to the Hexenwasser. But one thing is certain: the ride up to the Hexenwasser will be a true experience!
