The Wenger Moor in Köstendorf is one of the largest near-natural moorland areas in Salzburg's Flachgau region.
Children and parents discover a wide variety of biotopes during their visit, such as raised bogs, lowland bogs and transitional bogs, as well as litter and wet meadows and small streams. Cyclists and walkers are always fascinated by the character of the raised bogs and the former peat bogs. The litter meadows also impress with their scenic attractions at any time of the year.
