In summer, Hauser Kaibling is a real hiker’s paradise. Take to the sign-posted Schafsinn circular walk and sheep-box at Hauser Kaibling tower area. Along the trail, there is a lot of information about the Enns valley lamb EU-leader-project. Also, you’ll have marvellous views across the entire Enns valley and you will meet an 800-strong flock of sheep and lambs and their shepherd. This sustainable project is not only the basis for the happy Enns valley sheep in summer but also motivation for ecological, regional, and valuable products and healthy food.
