Find herbs, collect them and make an ointment from them - for little druids and witch apprentices

A small herbal hike in front of the castle, where herbs and leaves are selected and collected - to produce an ointment.

The organic ointment and beeswax (food-based) and the collected plants are used to stir the ointment and fill it in tigels. With sufficient explanations, of course, when to best use them.

And then the following questions are clarified:
What are wild plants? What is an ointment anyway? Can you eat the homemade ointment? How does it work?

Preis: € 6.00 per child including ointment and recipe, excluding castle entry
for 20-25 students
Age: 8-11 years
Duration: approx. 90 minutes
Bookable: Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday

Hopefully afterwards there is still time to explore Austria's most famous castle ruins and immerse yourself in the Middle Ages ...
