Border guard trail Oberreute/Allgaeu
Smuggler-Pete knows how to do it.
Adults are required to acquire knowledge about nature. Meanwhile, children are supposed to read the signs of nature and to sharpen their senses according to the instructions of Smuggler-Peter. Just the way, smugglers did it back in the days. So you can detect life-size animal figures in the undergrowth you can crack the treasure chest, capture the voices of the treetops with the ear trumpet or you can find shelter in the pine branches and much more. A set of very creative landscape furniture like so-called "Himmelguckerbänke" (benches on which you can watch the sky), hammocks in the woods, telescope platforms with view of the Nagelfluh mountain range are enrichments for the new path.
Stories of border guards, customs officers and smugglers
You can gain insight into the former life at the border at the little house of the border guards in the "Hochsträß"1050 metres above sea level, the highest point of the mountain Sulz-Berg. Countless legends, but also true and very dramatic incidents concerning border guards, customs officers and smugglers are known and documented at the path. Looking out of the window of the little border house, you can see how the officers did their patrols and older people among us will have certain memories.
