  • Really enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Colors are amazing. Coming from Australia and having traveled the outback there, I was interested to learn about the similar way in which the colors were created. The walk itself is very well cared for, and you are encouraged not to go off-track to preserve the environment. It is around five minutes walk from the town up the hill past the car park. The price of entry is definitely worth it
  • The beauty is at the very beginning of the route, the rest is nothing special, just a usual trail in the forest. The small route should take 35 minutes, but it actually takes 20 minutes max. of 3 euro per person, children under 14 free. Parking 3 euro for 24h. The city near the Trail is small and unpresentable. I would say you need half a day for the trail and the city.
