Activities of leisure, pleasure and contemplation

Trained nature and park rangers accompany children on their journeys of discovery at the Green Belt.

It is possible to book in advance the nature and history experience at the Green Belt. Depending on your preference, you can build bridges across the border, obtain views and insights from the watchtowers and observation posts, feast on Green Belt (ribbon) noodles and filled chocolates, split slate or enjoy health treatments to your heart's content. There is a choice of around a dozen activities, from a weekend stay to a week of adventure. Liberty, pleasure and contemplation set the tone here for an eventful stay at the Green Belt.
