The Waldhusche in the Hintere Sächsische Schweiz is a 66 ha large open-air area of forest history. Children and adults can experience the history of forest management and the natural processes in the forest on 4 interconnected theme paths and at more than 40 stations. The site is freely accessible all year round. The main entrance to the Waldhusche is located at the car park at the Buchenparkhalle. Some of the paths are also suitable for wheelchair users.
What does "Waldhusche" actually mean? In the past, "Husche" was the term used by foresters to describe a slide made of logs on which the felled logs "scurried" down from the mountain slopes into the valley.
The national park service offers guided hikes "On the way with the national park district leader - first-hand forest experience" through the "Waldhusche" (approx. 2 hours).
