A special treat for beer lovers is a visit to the Köberl family, where you can taste the home-brewed Hausmi beer. A welcome change in an area historically dominated by viticulture.
The farm museum of the hospitable Strohmeier family offers many interesting things. Here you can learn how farm work has changed due to motorisation and has become easier for farmers.
In general, you should make sure you wear good shoes, as the path across meadows and paths can still be damp and slippery even on sunny days.
