The Centre wants to realize a new Adventure Path, called “Zahlenwald”. You will help preparing the path, setting up signs to guide the way, and create interactive elements, mostly made of wooden materials of all kind, that help children and adults learn more about the forest. Be prepared for different kinds of manual work and look forward to learning more about trees and wood!
You will be accommodated in a close-by school in Rimpar that offers lots of space, a well-equipped kitchen and showers.
Rimpar is a small town with around 7.500 inhabitants. Its centre is characterized by Castle Grumbach, a palace built in 14th century that is nowadays home to various museums. Rimpar is located in Franconia and just 10 km from Wuerzburg, one of Bavaria’s biggest cities that is famous for its wine, its fortress and the Residence which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The “Forest Adventure Centre” is an institution that invites people to discover local nature, especially the forest: They offer a wide range of activities, such as guided tours for school classes and adults, or “Forest Adventure Paths”. These paths invite visitors to walk in their own pace and stop at interactive elements to smell, feel, hear, play, … in and with the forest. One of these trails was already built with an international group; it is especially designed to be accessible for people with disabilities as well.
