Hay-jumping and planing station
The freshly mowed hay on the Speikboden Alm is stored in the "Heuschupfe". It serves not only as food for the animals but also for hay jumping. Everyone can indulge in a hay bath here to their heart's content.
When you close your eyes in the "Heuschupfe" and take a deep breath, the scent of hay rises to your nostrils. Fine noses will unmistakably detect the smell of fresh mint - this herb grows particularly intensely at an altitude of 2000 m.
Via a small staircase located at the rear of the hay barn, one reaches the "diving board". From a height of about two meters, anyone can dive into the fresh hay. Here are the most important rules of conduct for hay jumping at a glance:
- Only jump when there's no one in the hay below.
- No pushing.
- Sit on the diving board first and then jump.
The hay-jumping station is located next to the planing station, both can be found in the petting zoo on the Speikboden Alm at 2000m. You can reach it with the Speikboden cable car. Click here for the cable car tickets!
