Hiking and observing wildlife
Sparbach was Austria’s first nature park. It is home for many animals (also wild boar freely roaming the park!). There is a welcome center, animals inside special compounds, an adventure playground and a lot more to discover. You can also have walks to the Johannstein ruin (45mins), the Diana temple (1.5hrs) and the Köhlerhaus ruin (1.5hrs).
