Bartli the dwarf lives in the enchanted forest of Braunwald, where his favourite haunts are: eight marvellous, fairytale places. To find these places full of magic, all you have to do is follow the path and not lose Bartli’s trail...

Bartli the dwarf, with his long beard, red trousers and green jumper, comes out of his wine tavern from mid-June to October to welcome families and help them learn about his forest.

His forest teems with surprises: The dwarves’ castle, the dwarves’ pit, the bark store, the cliff of precious stones, the iron grotto, the dwarves’ mound, the house of Tiidis and, finally, the dwarves’ bath.

This long path stretches for four kilometres and takes three and a half hours to complete. There are several variants, each one suitable for groups to explore different aspects of the path, offering a range of delights.
