Welcome to
Forest Art Park St. Corona am Wechsel.

Nice that you're here!

In our Forest Art Park St. Corona am Wechsel, the historic forest park behind the former Hotel Waldhof is being revived with the means of art and the forest is brought to the attention of visitors in a new way.

"Finland is officially the world´s happiest country. It is also 75% forest. I believe these facts are related."

What actually is forest art?

"While walking through our small forest, you suddenly begin to perceive the forest, the other things around you and ultimately yourself differently.


It can´t really be explained logically, but people like to linger in the forest art park. They keep changing their perspectives on the artworks, perceive the forest, space, light, colors and textures again and start to think.

Forest art uses the forest as a space to use art to change our perception and stimulate our thinking. Our perception of the forest, the landscape and nature. The perception of ourselves as part of nature. The effects of our actions as second nature."

           Dietmar Wiegand, Co-organizer

Forest art educational offers form an essential part of the Forest Art Festival in St. Corona am Wechsel.

Trees are given a face made of clay and the forest floor is given a mandala made up of all the things that forest and meadow offer.
From what the forest offers, a mobile or natural colors are created.


You are welcome to bring your children to the Forest Art Park on Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. We help the children to combine the creativity of the forest and their own creativity.


The Forest Art Workshops are suitable for children and young people from 4 to 18 years.

Entry is flexible at any time between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.!

We look forward to you!

We know that forest walks are real health boosters.

They strengthen your immune system and get your metabolism going again. A walk through the forest not only creates a closer connection to nature, but also slows down your thoughts. You learn to take a closer look again, to observe what is actually happening in the forest.

For whom did we create this forest art park?

The Forest Art Park St. Corona am Wechsel is an offer for:

Art lovers

Nature lovers


Local bike and motorbike holidaymakers, who are looking for an interesting stopover

School classes looking for new experiences

Guests from other neraby venues (Erlebnisarena, Sommerrodelbahn), who are looking for more family   highlights




Our goal?


Our forest art park is fun for children and adults, opens up new perspectives, stimulates reflection and makes you want to exercise in nature.


We want to challenge your perception, amaze you and give you access to art that you certainly would not expect in a forest.

So if you are in the area, don´t miss this  cultural highlight.


We think the forest park should finally be used by people again.

Admission is of course free of charge.


We look forward to you!

As Managing Director of Movatoo GmbH in Vienna, Dietmar develops future-oriented real estate, including the area of the former Hotel Waldhof in St. Corona.

When considering how the Waldhof area could be put back into value, Dietmar remembered the forest art path in Darmstadt, which he had got to know and loved during visits to Darmstadt.


He was able to interest the initiator of the forest art path in Darmstadt, Ute Ritschel, in Austria and the former forest park in St. Corona and win her over as curator of the first international forest art festival.
