St. Martin trail
This trail, wich is approximately 3 km long, was first thought to be a trail for meditation and conceived with special focus on children, nature and simplicity. The aim is to have visitors, especially children, experience nature through all their senses  and explain them the message sent to us by God the Creator through His creatures. 
A number of elements, e.g. footprints, the labyrinth, the Stone of Our Fahter or the beautiful belvedere help both children and adults to learn about the life of St. Martin and better understand their life, too.
