FAQ´s

WHAT ABOUT THE TOPIC "SECURITY"?

The rope course is built and certified according to EN 15567-1. This is the European one  Safety standard for rope courses. The safety system is a so-called "class E safety system" - this is the highest safety class.  All our  Trainers are of course trained according to EN 15567-1 and DIN SPEC 31060. So they can save if necessary and know what they are doing.  We work with our own COVID-19 prevention concept and according to the two standards "Rope Gardens  at times of the COVID-19 crisis" and "Framework concept for corona protection measures for staff and guests in connection with the reopening of climbing parks in Austria" by two court-sworn experts.  ​

FROM WHAT AGE I AM ALLOWED TO CLIMB IN THE ERLEBNISIWALD ALTENMARKT?

From 4 years and accompanied by two adults, it is possible to climb all courses. From the age of 10 you can climb alone under the supervision of an accompanying person. The presence of the accompanying person is mandatory - but no longer climbing.

WILL THE TRAINER CLIMB WITH ME?

No. The Altenmarkt adventure forest is a self-safety park. You will receive training in our safety technology and then climb independently and responsibly. If you need help, there is a trainer on site to help you or rescue you in an emergency.

DO I HAVE TO PAY ENTRY IF I DO NOT CLIMB?

No. However, children and young people up to the age of 9 must be actively accompanied by climbing, i.e. the person caring for them must also climb and therefore pay the entrance fee. From the age of 10 to 18, climbing is permitted without “climbing” supervision (so there is no entry fee), but there must be a responsible adult on the ground.

WHAT IS A FLYING FOX?

We offer you three Flying Fox zip line courses. This refers to a steel cable that you ride down hanging using a pulley. The feeling is like flying...

CAN I SMOKE IN THE AREA OF THE ERLEBNISWALD ALTENMARKT?

Your health, our health and the health of our forest are very important to us. There is therefore a strict ban on smoking throughout the entire area. We also want to counteract littering in the forest. In addition, the wonderful smell of the forest is part of the “forest experience”. We ask you to respect this!

DO I NEED PRIOR KNOWLEDGE TO CLIMB?

No. The courses are designed to be constructive and can be easily completed without any previous experience.

WHICH CLOTHING IS RIGHT?

Closed shoes and comfortable clothing are sufficient to climb with us. Long hair is tied into a braid.

CAN I TAKE MY DOG TO THE FACILITY?

Yes. However, dogs must always be kept on a leash. Dogs are not allowed on the courses.

DO YOU HAVE DRINKS AND FOOD?

Yes! But only little things. Bottled juices and ice cream. Not far from us (approx. 10 minutes walk) is the “Neuhäusl” inn, which would be happy if you came by for a lunch snack.

CAN I CONSUME THE FOOD AND DRINKS I BROUGHT WITH ME?

Yes. But everything you bring with you into nature - including in our adventure forest - you take back with you and please dispose of any packaging/bottles you have brought with you yourself and professionally.

CAN I CLIMB DRUNK AND / OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS?

No. As soon as we notice that a guest does not have all their senses together, they will be expelled from the area. Climbing - no matter at what height and no matter what safety system - requires concentration and mindfulness.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET TO YOU?

You can easily and comfortably take the path from Altenmarkt by bike or on foot - it meanders nicely and flatly along the stream. Or you can use public transport - the next bus stop is at the Bergbahnen Altenmarkt valley station (diagonally opposite is the adventure forest - approx. 4 minutes on foot). If you come by car, you can park directly with us (10 parking spaces) or you can park in the large parking lot at the Bergbahnen Altenmarkt valley station (diagonally opposite is the adventure forest - approx. 4 minutes on foot).
