Surrounded by the wild and romantic Helenental in the Vienna Woods Biosphere Park - these are ideal conditions for us as the first WALDNESS® hosts in Lower Austria.

Forest activities for seminars, events and groups:

Walk in the forest on the topics of mindfulness or activity

Mindfulness: Experience nature with all your senses on a guided WALDNESS walk and regenerate while bathing in the forest air. Participants learn the art of mindfulness through the power of the forest. Nowhere is it easier to slow down than in the forest.

Activity: Start an exercise-oriented walk in the forest together. This offer is particularly helpful after sitting for a long time or when the participants' heads are spinning. You get back into action and get in touch with your body. Active games in nature encourage this.

Depending on your needs, you can choose from the two topics for your forest walk. The programs also contribute to team building.

Costs for a maximum of 15 participants:

  • EUR 440 plus 20% VAT per group for 1.5 hours
  • EUR 520 plus 20% VAT per group for 2 hours
  • EUR 640 plus 20% VAT per group for 3 hours
  • From 16 – 20 people: EUR 150 surcharge plus 20% VAT.
  • Over 20 people by individual arrangement


Waldness night hike

Experience an exciting journey of discovery on a hike at night. Perceive nature more intensively, experience the beauty of darkness and sharpen your senses. The night hike is peppered with a task that promotes teamwork and the opportunity to also go on solo walks.

Costs for a maximum of 20 participants:

  • EUR 650 plus 20% VAT per group for 1.5 hours
  • Over 20 participants by arrangement


Perceive nature with all your senses, rediscover the new and the familiar.

At the beginning, choose a natural souvenir that will later remind you of your trip or look out for an object that will accompany you on your hike and that you will then release back into nature.

Sharpen your senses for your own body and the nature that surrounds you.

  • See: Walk carefully through nature or the forest, consciously take breaks. Which trees, plants and animals can be discovered?
  • Hear: Rest your hearing by listening to other sounds by immersing yourself in the forest. Over time you will be able to focus on individual sounds. Lean against a tree, close your eyes and listen.
  • Feel: The skin is our largest sensory organ. In addition, we can often remember things better that we have touched ourselves. Run your fingers over blades of grass, touch tree bark, soil, small branches, leaves and much more.
  • Smell: Set your nose to the scent of crushed leaves and needles, breathe in the fresh morning air in the forest, smell the earth. Include your breathing in this experience, too, by breathing in deeply through your nose and exhaling twice as long through your mouth. Over time, breathing changes and becomes deeper, from shallow chest breathing to abdominal breathing.
  • Taste: Use the variety of herbs and edible berries that you can clearly identify for tasting.
